Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 1st quarter 2013 (1Q13) Data Center Network Equipment report, which tracks data center Ethernet switches, application delivery controllers (ADCs) and WAN optimization appliances.
“Following 2 strong years of investment, growth in the data center equipment market is starting to slow,” notes Matthias Machowinski, directing analyst for enterprise networks and video at Infonetics Research. “While the near term outlook remains positive, ultimately we think the market is headed for a peak, as data center operators improve infrastructure utilization, and adoption of cloud services moves hardware consumption from enterprises to large-scale data center operators.”
DATA CENTER MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
- Worldwide revenue for data center network equipment (data center Ethernet switches, ADCs and WAN optimization appliances) declined 11% sequentially in 1Q13, to $2.3 billion
- Purpose-built data center switches grew 30% year-over-year in 1Q13
- Following record sales in 2012, ADC revenue dipped 7% sequentially in 1Q13 and is only slightly positive (+2%) from a year ago due to declining sales to the U.S. federal government and delays in tier 1 telco projects
- Thanks to its partnership with Cisco (who exited the ADC market last year), Citrix is gaining momentum in the ADC space, growing market share by almost 10 points in the last year and gaining on #1 F5
- WAN optimization revenue is declining, due to feature integration and market saturation

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
