DUBLIN, Sept. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Converged Infrastructure Market by Components, Services, Architecture Type, and End Users - Worldwide Forecasts & Analysis (2014 - 2019)" report to their offering.
An increasing number of Internet companies and organizations across different business verticals are using either traditional IT or cloud infrastructure system to meet the need of computing, storing, and efficiently utilizing IT resources. The traditional data center is a combination of server, storage, and network products from a variety of vendors that have been pieced together over the years. Therefore, the data center of a company generally uses several different generations of Dell, IBM, and HP servers; brocade switches; and perhaps NetApp and HP storage subsystems.
The advantage of such a diverse environment is that IT decision makers can select the best equipment that is cost effective and best suited to the application and computing workloads in use. However, traditional data centers lag behind, mainly because they are heterogeneous in nature. These data centers usually struggle with system management wherein some systems offer significant granularity for management but not other systems. For instance, if storage devices are managed efficiently, the server management may not be monitored with the same granularity. In order to manage these systems efficiently, IT administrators are forced to use multiple tools or they need to compromise on some or other important management oversight in the IT infrastructure environment. Troubleshooting is also another aspect for these diversified data centers. For instance, a server dealer may not support a system when attached to certain vendors' networking or storage systems.
Cloud infrastructure as an alternative gives a freedom to users to get connected from almost anywhere and escape from infrastructure hosting and maintenance. However, the cloud infrastructure is not preferred and clearly avoided mainly because of two reasons which include the need for constant connectivity or high bandwidth Internet and concerns regarding security of data and business operations.
The concept of converged infrastructure provides data centers with an all-in-one solution for the entire infrastructure. It includes servers, storage, and networking equipment which are all bundled and pre-integrated from a single vendor. Buying everything from a single vendor eliminates integration and interoperability problems and offers better management because the software tools are tailored for the specific equipment and the service is being provided by the same vendor. Organizations are gaining ground by creating awareness about the converged infrastructure solution in the market. The market is in the nascent stage and disruptive in nature; however, it is being adopted at a good rate. The application has many positive drivers such as aligning IT as per the business requirements, reduction in Capex and Opex of IT, which indicate a high growth potential in the next 3-5 years within the converged infrastructure market.
In this report, the market has been segmented to understand and estimate the market opportunity across components, services, architecture types, end users, industries, and business verticals. This report forecasts the global Converged Infrastructure Market to grow from $11.53 billion in 2014 to $33.89 billion by 2019, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 24.1%.
