TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report - Global Data Center Ethernet Switch Market 2012-2016
TechNavio today launched its report, Global Data Center Ethernet Switch Market 2012-2016, based on an in-depth analysis covering the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions. The report aims to aid decision makers' understanding of the present and future landscape of the market.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Data Centers team said: ''Data traffic profiles have transitioned from asymmetric e-mail messages and low bandwidth client-server computing applications to large data traffic, latency sensitive and high bandwidth intensive computing applications. Currently, network latency has gained precedence over data accuracy and even 10 millisecond differences can win or lose customers. In the data centers, highly complex data traffic moves in a random order between storage, internet, servers, and intranet. Moreover, there are varieties of traditional and advanced data intensive applications including Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), storage access, emerging converged I/O, etc. This data traffic is increasing rapidly and increases exponentially if any unexpected event occurs across the globe. For instance, the data centers in financial institutions are flooded with data traffic in any major up- or downturn in the capital markets.''
According to the report, one of the main growth drivers is the increasing virtualization in network environments. Virtualization has increased deployment of multi-core and blade server platforms resulting in consolidation of storage environments. Virtual networks can be programmed, bonded to workloads, and are scalable to demand.
Further, the report reveals that one of the main challenges in this market is declining equipment prices.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
