REDWOOD CITY, USA: According to the new Data Center Disruptors Advanced Research Report from Dell’Oro Group, the Software Defined Networking (SDN) Market will grow more than six-fold over the next five years.

The majority of this market will comprise Ethernet Switches and Network Security Appliances, which are forecast to deliver seventy-five percent of total sales revenue in 2013.

“Almost every major Ethernet Switch vendor with exposure in the data center is announcing significant new products over the next several weeks. To put perspective on the order of magnitude of the data center equipment market, in 2013 sales will exceed $100 B, split between Servers, Storage, Ethernet Switches, and Data Center Appliances, etc. We predict a wide variety of manufacturers will engage in battle for the supremacy of data center spending and control,” said Alan Weckel, VP at Dell’Oro Group.


“For Ethernet Switching, data center share will become an increasingly important metric for three reasons: almost all revenue growth in the market over the next five years will come from data center products; vendors will have to fight each other for ever-fewer, although larger, deals; and SDN is changing who owns application and network control points,” Weckel stated.
