Data center automation market forecast to $7.5 billion
The rising need for virtualized data centers and the incessantly increasing data traffic poses as a threat to enterprises and infrastructure providers alike, contends new report.
Research and Markets (Dublin, Ireland) has released its latest report, Data Center Automation Market by Solution, by Services, & by End User - Global Forecast to 2019. The analyst forecasts the total global data center automation market to grow from $3.16 billion in 2014 to $7.53 billion by 2019, at an estimated compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.97% from 2014 to 2019.
The rising need for virtualized data centers and incessantly increasing data traffic poses as a threat to enterprises and infrastructure providers alike, contends the analyst. This is considered as a strong driver for the global data center automation market. Increased cost overheads and complexities in the networking environment have given way to the adoption of data center automation, thereby aiding companies in cutting down their operational and capital expenditure (CAPEX).
"Typically, the infrastructure cost of data centers rises while scaling up from existing architectures. This often leads to several complexities and interoperability issues between different components, thereby increasing demand for a seamless software defined environment," states the report's summary. It continues, "The SDDC comprises software defined storage (SDS), software defined networking (SDN) and software defined server/compute, wherein all the three components of networking are empowered by specialized controllers, which abstract the controlling plane from the underlying physical equipment. This controller virtualizes the network, server and storage capabilities of a data center, thereby giving a better visibility into data traffic routing and server utilization. This, in turn results in a controller driven environment, which accentuates data center performance while ensuring significantly low operating expenses (OPEX)."
This report gives detailed insights into the global data center automation market split across various regions, type of solution and type of end-users. The report also emphasizes key adoption trends, evolution of data centers, future opportunities and business cases in this growing market. The analyst expects an increasing adoption of SDDC solutions, as major vendors are aggressively investing and rigorously working towards building cost effective data center solutions, in an effort to reduce the overall cost incurred by end-users.
