Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “An SDN is a network architecture wherein the software interacts directly and dynamically with the network infrastructure. The software includes applications, content, services, etc. that are stored or executed in data centers. An SDN is unique because applications and services do not normally interact directly with the network infrastructure and they are not visible to the network. Enterprises can partition their networks for private use through the adoption of SDN technologies. This can help organizations such as banks share confidential data more securely among themselves. Moreover, security firewalls can be added as application software in the network, making the network economical and manageable. Through SDN deployment, IT can become agile by organizing the network services and monitoring the network through high-level policies instead of low-level network device configurations.”
According to the report, among the numerous growth drivers for the Global Data Center Integrated Infrastructure Systems market, increased deployment of data centers is the major growth driver. Enterprises are increasingly deploying data centers to reduce the cost of infrastructure, technology, and human resources. Moreover, data centers are helpful in disaster recovery and they improve the network infrastructure security. Hence, enterprises are consolidating their applications and services into a single point of operation by centralizing their IT systems.
Further, the report states that one of the main challenges is that the investment required for data center integrated infrastructure systems is huge, and thus it takes time for enterprises to generate a substantial return on investment. Implementing a complete data center integrated infrastructure system solution usually takes a considerable amount of time. This increases the criticality of the process because, once the deployment has started, it becomes very costly to make any changes. It also requires expensive additional infrastructure, complex programming, and extra time and money to ensure data integration and quality.
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.
