Report Description


A data center is a facility which houses several computer systems in addition to other components such as storage systems. The data center also contains back-up power supply, various security devices, and data communication connections. Data centers are used by organizations to manage, process, store, or disseminate vast amounts of data. A data center switch aids in the management of data in a data center by providing access to the networks and storage resources and ensures consistent networking access.

The data center switch uses standard protocols to segment traffic using the concept of virtual local area network. The need to store and manage vast amounts of data securely is due to the explosive growth in internet usage for organizations to maintain their operations. There has been a growing trend among enterprises to data storage to real-time data analysis and process the data on demand. Many small and middle level organizations cannot meet this demand for real time access and hence are resorting to cloud services. Also, an increasing number of organizations are resorting to switches capable of managing more than 40 GB of data as they experience increase in the data traffic with the expansion in their operations. Furthermore, an increasing number of manufacturers are introducing advanced switches in the market which offer better performance and efficient management of the data. They ensure continuous operations, input and output consolidation, flexibility, and high density and performance of top-of-rack deployments.

The growing need for simplified data center management and advent of automation is the primary driver propelling the growth of the data center switches market. The huge amount of data generated by enterprises calls for the effective management and security of the data. This data is stored at various locations which can be on-premise or cloud based. Thus, there is high demand for cloud services to effectively manage the data. Various small and medium range businesses are also adopting data center switches. Also, the internet multimedia content witnessed explosive growth over the past decade coupled with the increasing we applications which require more and more bandwidth. All these factors are expected to affect the data center switches market positively. However, the complexity associated with the management of huge chunks of data may hamper the growth of the market. Nevertheless, the rising adoption of data center switches and upgrading of the obsolete switches to new and advanced switches by enterprises is anticipated to fuel the growth of the data center switches market.
