The global software defined data center market is driven by technological advancement in data centers. Several types of software are involved in squeezing greater performance out of particular hardware, and all such software are expected to contribute to the global software-defined data centre market.
Software defined data center is customer ready software that offers fully virtualised infrastructure governed by a comprehensive cloud management platform, which is delivered on a flexible mix of private and hybrid clouds. In the software-defined data center, the elements of the infrastructure such as networking, storage, CPU and security are virtualized and delivered as a service.
The major purpose of SDDC is to support enterprise legacy, modernize applications and provide improved efficiencies, control, agility and flexibility. Software defined data center can also be termed as enhanced virtualization of data center for efficient and effective operations of cloud services and big data analytics. The adoption of advanced data centre management software in various organizations, need for cost effective solutions, and increased data centre ability to centrally manage the entire data center are driving the growth of the market. The SDDC market is growing rapidly due to the up gradation of traditional data centres to advanced SDDC for massive increase in data center traffic. It also helps in reducing the operational and capital expenditure of the data centers. Software defined data centres have an advantage of being capable to be implemented on any hardware. However, after having various advantages, problems of integration with SDCC technologies and growing pressure on industry resources are some of the major challenges hindering the market growth in the near future.
On the basis of solution, the global software defined computing market is estimated to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period. SDC facilitates in reducing energy costs, performance, increasing efficiency and agility, which further reduce the space and complexities associated with the server. On the basis of service, integration and deployment service accounts for the largest market as it offers solutions for management, planning, designing, assembling, and integration.
Geographically, North America is expected to be the largest software defined data centre market during the forecast period owing to its early adoption of this technology. Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing SDDC market, mainly due to the growing number of data centers in the region and the developing interest of market players for addressing the demands for effective data center resource management in the region. The increasing numbers of cloud and telecommunication end users are also driving the growth of the market in Asia-Pacific.
Some of the key players in the global software defined data centre market include Cisco Systems, Inc., International Business Machines (IBM) Corporation, Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P. (HP), Fujitsu, EMC Corporation, Hitachi Data Systems, Citrix Systems, Inc., NEC Corporation and Big Switch Networks.
