REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --According to the new Data
Center Disruptors Advanced Research Report from Dell'Oro Group, the trusted
source for information about the networking and telecommunications industry,

"Almost every major Ethernet Switch vendor with exposure in the data center is
announcing significant new products over the next several weeks. To put
perspective on the order of magnitude of the data center equipment market, in
2013 sales will exceed $100 B, split between Servers, Storage, Ethernet
Switches, and Data Center Appliances, etc. We predict a wide variety of
manufacturers will engage in battle for the supremacy of data center spending
and control," said Alan Weckel, Vice President at Dell'Oro Group. "For
Ethernet Switching, data center share will become an increasingly important
metric for three reasons: almost all revenue growth in the market over the
next five years will come from data center products; vendors will have to
fight each other for ever-fewer, although larger, deals; and SDN is changing
who owns application and network control points," Weckel stated.

The Dell'Oro Group Data Center Disruptors Advanced Research Report examines
the disruptive elements to the Ethernet Switch market in the data center,
including SDN, Cloud, Virtualization, and the impact of White Box Switching.
The Report addresses issues such as: the importance of SDN to the data center;
the portion of the market attributed to White Box and the effect of the Cloud
on Ethernet Switch, Application Delivery Controller and Network Security
Appliance Markets. The report also reveals first half 2013 vendor placement
in the data center Ethernet Switch market and how Brocade, Cisco, Dell,
Hewlett-Packard, Extreme, Huawei, IBM, and Juniper place in this increasingly
important segment.
