A global assessment of the data centre network equipment market and analysis of the key market trends, sub-segments and future prospects for the industry

Data centres are imperative for any IT centric organisation to ensure business continuity, sustainability and scalability. Heavily commercialised during the internet boom of the late 90s, data centres provide a secure, consolidated and resilient storage and communication foundation which services a widespread geographic footprint.

Driven by exponentially increasing demand for both network storage capacity and network bandwidth, ARCchart estimates that there are nearly 600,000 data centers worldwide covering about 310 million square feet of space.

This report provides a global assessment of the data centre network equipment market. Besides assessing the key market trends, sub-markets and future prospects of the industry, the report provides detailed market forecasts for data centre network equipment revenues and unit shipments from 2012 to 2016, at a global, regional and sub-market level. Sub-markets analysed include WAN optimisation appliances, Ethernet switches and application delivery controllers (ADCs). Historical READ MORE >
