According to the new market research “Software-Defined Data Center Market by Component (Hardware, Software, and Service), Type (Software-Defined Compute, Software-Defined Storage, and Software-Defined Data Center Networking), Organization Size, Vertical, and Region – Global Forecast to 2023″, the global Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) market size is expected to grow from $33.5 billion in 2018 to $96.5 billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 23.6% during the forecast period.
SDDC enables policy-based infrastructure provisioning, wherein virtualized compute, storage, and networking resources are logically pooled and managed as a software. The ever-increasing operational cost overheads and complexities in the traditional data center environment have facilitated the adoption of SDDC, which is expected to aid companies in cutting down their operational and capital expenditure.
Services segment to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The market of SDDC solutions is growing, thereby driving the growth of the services associated with them. SDDC services are crucial for an organization. Broad expertise and deep knowledge of the service providers cater to specific challenges of end users and help reduce risks and complexities. Additionally, these services assist managers to meet their ultimate objective of improved operability, and energy and resource utilization. The growing complexities of installation and the deployment of SDDC are expected to increase the demand for SDDC services.
Software-defined data center networking segment to fuel the SDDC market during the forecast period
Software-Defined Data Center Networking (SDN) offers a cost-effective alternative with greater control when compared to traditional networking. This, in turn, enables centralized control to the network traffic without configuring the settings of individual switches. SDN facilitates the provision of dynamic, cost-effective, manageable, and adaptable solutions, making it an ideal solution for dynamic applications utilizing high-bandwidth. SDN aids end users in managing the high degree of change necessary on the network to support virtual workloads, reduce the complexity of the network in the data center, and enable automation and orchestration of network configurations.
North America to dominate the SDDC market during the forecast period
The global SDDC market by region covers 5 major regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America. North America is estimated to hold the largest market size in 2018, owing to the presence of several vendors and huge investments in adopting SDDC solutions in the region. The SDDC market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to the rapid developments of the required infrastructure and increase in the need to adopt innovative technologies.
The report also studies various growth strategies, such as mergers and acquisitions, partnerships and collaborations, and developments, adopted by the major players to expand their presence in the market. Major vendors in the SDDC market include VMware (US), Microsoft (US), HPE (US), Nutanix (US), Dell EMC (US), Huawei (China), Cisco (US), IBM (US), NEC (Japan), RedHat (US), Oracle (US), SUSE (Germany), Fujitsu (Japan), Citrix (US), and Lenovo (Hong Kong).
