Dell'Oro: SDN Market to Grow Over 70 Percent in 2015

Dell'Oro Group is forecasting that the Software Defined Networking (SDN) Market will grow more than 70% in 2015, versus 2014. A new report finds that 2015 marked an important milestone in SDN, with many Ethernet Switch architectures ratified and production deployments under way.

"SDN's impact on the Ethernet Switch market increased significantly in 2015 as deployments expanded beyond the large Cloud Providers," said Alan Weckel, Vice President at Dell'Oro Group.  "It is clear that, by 2020, data centers will look significantly different from today's.  We are already seeing an impact on the overall networking and IT markets as enterprise customer spend stagnates while spend from Cloud Providers such as AWS and Azure explodes.  As we look towards next generation 25 GE and 50 GE server access we expect to see significant disruption amongst the vendors with Dell's planned acquisition of EMC being a prelude to further market consolidation," Weckel stated.
