TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Report – SAN Switch and Adaptor Market in North America 2010–2014
TechNavio today launched its SAN Switch and Adaptor Market in North America 2010–2014 report based on an in-depth study focusing of the market with inputs from industry experts. The report aids decision makers’ understanding of the growth potential in this market.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s Data Centers team said, “The major trend being witnessed in the SAN Switch and Adapter market particularly in North America is the increased adoption of Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) switch. The FCoE SAN technology is gaining more popularity in the data storage environments due to the need for a single converged network infrastructure. On the other hand, one of the main challenges that the SAN Switch and Adapter market in North America faces is emerging adoption of cloud-based network storage. With emerging network storage facilities being provided through cloud computing platform the demand for SAN equipment in the North American region is decreasing.”
TechNavio’s report highlights that the data associated with organizations is increasing exponentially in the North American region. With North America housing the world's largest data center operators, media companies and content providers the need for SAN switch and adapters is increasing. Hence, the storage requirements of organizations have multiplied rapidly in size, complexity and heterogeneity, and it has become increasingly difficult to manage the storage infrastructure.
Key findings from the report:
- Increasing Need to Reduce the Organizational Storage Administration Costs
- Rapid Evolution of Storage Technology Delaying Equipment Purchase
- Increasing Adoption of Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
