REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ethernet Switch market is undergoing a technological transformation in the data center, as virtualization changes where and how applications are connected to end users. To assess the market impact, Dell'Oro Group has created an advanced research report to analyze how disruptive the Cloud can be and how Ethernet Switch vendors are currently performing in the data center. The Report details projections for the Ethernet Switch market and for Software Defined Networking in the data center over the next five years.
"For the first time in the market, customers are consolidating data centers and connecting those servers to the network with three different speeds, Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and 40 Gigabit Ethernet," said Alan Weckel, Vice President at Dell'Oro Group. "Moving infrastructure towards the hosted environment of the Cloud and looking towards Software Defined Networking is resulting in a battle for supremacy in data center. It is also causing unique requirements and solutions across the customers. The result is that there has never been a better time for new entrants or a better opportunity for existing vendors to gain share."
The report also indicates that Avaya, Brocade, Cisco, Dell, Extreme, HP, IBM, and Juniper are the largest vendors in the data center in terms of revenue for 2011.
