REDWOOD CITY, Calif., March 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, announced today Application Delivery Controller revenue surged over 10 percent in 2011 to approximately $1.4 Billion.
"We believe that data center build outs, consolidation, and the continued preference of users bringing their own devices as well as increased applications on each device will drive robust growth in 2012. We also see ADCs continuing to expand their role in network intelligence beyond basic load balancing and further into security services such as authentication," said Alan Weckel, Senior Director of Ethernet Switch Market Research at Dell'Oro Group. "We also believe that this market is less prone to current worldwide economic uncertainty over the next several quarters because it focuses solely on the data center. New deployments in the Cloud, such as Facebook or Google, as well as data center consolidation projects both tend to have strong growth regardless of unemployment levels or GDP growth," Weckel added.
The report also indicates that 2012 will be an important year to see how virtual appliances take form in the Application Delivery Controller market. While the technology is still in the early stages, virtual appliances comprised 3% of revenue during the quarter. Vendors such as A10, Citrix, F5, and Riverbed currently have offerings in the virtual Application Delivery Controller market.
