Market Insights

A Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) refers to data storage facility in which all elements of the infrastructure such as storage, networking, and security are virtualized and delivered as service. Provisioning, deployment, monitoring & automation and configuration & operation of the infrastructure is abstracted from hardware and executed in software. Several largest technology delivering organizations in the Internet network space adopted such approach to drive cost savings and improve manageability for multiple types of workloads. These architectures use commodity hardware components that are combined with proprietary technologies such as custom applications, platforms, and containers.

Overall software-defined data center market is segmented based on component, type, data center size, and industry vertical. Software-defined data center networking segment accounted to be the largest segment throughout the forecast period. Software-Defined Network (SDN) offers to move the network control plane to the software running on server. This improves programmability, efficiency, and extensibility. SDN is one of the most developed and favored software-defined technologies in recent years. North America was the largest market for software-defined data centers in 2018, chiefly due to early adoption of networking and cloud-based technology across multiple industrial verticals. Similarly, Asia Pacific market initiated to catch-up with significant pace in software-defined data center market primarily due to rapidly growing end-use industries.
