Increasing Implementation of SDN to Aid Growth of the Global Data Center Fabric Market through 2021

Renewable energy


The global data center fabric market will be valued at more than USD 9 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach almost USD 13 billion by 2021, says Technavio.

Technavio has announced its latest market research report on the global  data center fabric market under its data center portfolio. This market analysis discusses the major drivers and key emerging trends and offers an analysis of key vendors like Brocade Communications Systems, Cisco Systems, Dell, HPE, and Juniper Networks.

According to Abhishek Sharma, a lead analyst for data center research at Technavio, “Many vendors in the market such as Cisco, Big Switch, and Juniper in the fabric market offer solutions by integrating fabric and SDN to create programming interfaces to link applications to the fabric, with benefits such as reduction in latency and improved QoS.”

Integrated SDN protocols are likely to make the physical network fabric more application-aware. Data center operators are likely to adopt network fabric switches and routers for converged data center networking.

Increase in virtualization of network infrastructure

Virtualization also offers scalability, improved security, availability, and aids in better management. In recent years, the markets have seen an increase in virtualized networking environments. Virtual networks can be programmed, bonded to workloads, and are scalable to demand. Moreover, they do not require physical network reconfiguration.

Reduction in infrastructure cost and complexity

Vendors in the data center market are innovating IT infrastructure products with features such as cost efficiency and increased performance. Vendors are also improving fabric technology to focus on the reliable network infrastructure of data centers to support cloud workloads and big data analytics. The use of fabric switches can reduce the need for more server input/output (I/O) adapters and cabling by about 40%. It also helps eliminate unnecessary switching infrastructure and reduces cooling and power costs by up to 20%. Many enterprises such as Facebook that operate Tier-3 and Tier-4 data centers are early adopters of fabric technology.
