The Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) market is estimated to grow from USD 25.61 Billion in 2016 to USD 83.21 Billion by 2021, at a high Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 26.57% during the forecast period. SDDC solutions are gaining a significant importance among the corporates due to the increasing network traffic and efficient use of data center resources that helps in cutting down the cost of in-house infrastructure. Hence, the adoption of SDDC solution in various industries is increasing, which is one of the major growth factors of the market.

The report provides detailed insights into the global Software-Defined Data Center market, which is segmented by solution, service, data center type, vertical, and region. By solution, SDC holds higher market share and is gaining significant importance among corporates as it facilitates central control over entire data center and provides dynamic resource allocation facility, whereas, SDN solution is expected to show great growth opportunities within the next five years. In terms of services, integration and deployment service is to dominate the SDDC market and expected to contribute the largest market share, whereas managed services to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. SDDC enabled software to be placed at the forefront against the data center hardware. This technology has become popular amongst enterprises and is expected to decide the future of the data centers. Growing investment in data centers across the world and the increasing adoption of these solutions is further fueling the growth of the SDDC market.

Software-Defined Data Center (SDDS) Market

The report covers all the major aspects of the Software-Defined Data Center market and provides an in-depth analysis across the regions of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), the Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America. The market in North America is expected to hold the largest share of the market. The APAC region is projected to have great opportunities in this market and would grow at the highest CAGR by 2021 due to the increasing number of data centers in this region and the presence of various developing countries, such as China, India, and the Philippines.

However, integration and infrastructure changes may act as the restraining factors for the market. Traditional data centers face issues with integration of servers, networks, and storage infrastructure within the data center, where organizations may find it difficult to integrate SDDC technology with legacy IT infrastructure. Even IT infrastructure changes are bound to put pressure on IT operations staff, but deploying SDDC solutions have various benefits with lower OPEX and CPEX that helps in driving this market. Therefore, SDDC solutions are expected to strengthen its footprints not only in large enterprises but also in small and mid-sized enterprises.

Various vendors are coming up with innovative SDDC solutions and products due to the emerging virtualization and cloud computing, which is increasing the demands for advance, proactive, and efficient virtual security solutions. Cisco Systems is one of the dominant players in providing SDDC solutions and services due to its decades of experience in networking, communication, and data center security. Cisco focuses highly on developing new software defined networking related products, solutions, and services, which help the company to deliver a comprehensive portfolio for data center. Cisco has invested heavily in new product development. For instance, Cisco developed a Digital Network Architecture (DNA), open software architecture to enhance its digitization and virtualization capabilities. Moreover, the company launched a New Network Functions Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) Solution that provides network functions as virtualized service. The other major vendors providing SDDC solutions and services are VMware, Inc. (U.S.), Microsoft Corporation (U.S.), HPE (U.S.), EMC (U.S.), Cisco Systems (U.S.), Hitachi, Ltd. (Japan), IBM Corporation (U.S.), Fujitsu, Ltd. (Japan), NEC Corporation (Japan), Citrix Systems (U.S.), and others. These players adopted various strategies such as new product launches, partnerships, collaborations, and expansions to become competitive in the market.
