Data center interconnect or DCI allows associations to connect their datacenters with cloud services & also to support applications for instance business continuity and disaster recovery. The Data centers are interconnected with the help of effective private network. Associations are focuses on virtualization of their DC in order to reduce the costs & the need for efficiency because the different data centers permit to share resources or work. Some of the other benefits include workload sharing, scalability, and connectivity of multiple data in the same association.
According to study, “Worldwide Data Center Interconnect Market - Types (Products and Services); Transmission Lines (Synchronous and Asynchronous); Deployment Model (On-premise and Cloud); Regions (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and MEA) - Drivers, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecasts, 2016-2022” some of the key companies that are currently operating in the data center interconnect market are Ciena Corp., Alcatel-Lucent SA, Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., Viawest Inc., Ranovus Inc., Nokia Corp., BTI Systems Inc., ZTE Corp., Infinera Corp., MRV Communicationa Inc., Fiber Mountain Inc., Innovium Inc., Coresite Realty Corp., Cisco Systems Inc., Ekinops S.A., Brocade Communications Systems Inc., Coriant GmbH, Juniper Networks Inc., Megaport Ltd., Pluribus Network Inc., ADVA Optical Networking, Extreme Networks Inc., Cologix Inc., XKL LLC, Fujitsu Ltd., Colt Technologies Services Group Ltd., Telx.
Based on types, worldwide data center interconnect market is segmented into services types (training & consulting, maintenance services and integration services) and product types. Product includes packet optical transport or packet optical networking, packet switching networking and converged packet optical. Based on providers, the market is segmented into carrier neutral co-location providers or internet content providers (CNPs/ICP), cloud service providers (CSP), government & research or training, enterprises and marine network providers. Based on products, the market is segmented as optical networking, optical packet networking and packet switching networking. Based on transmission lines, market is segmented into synchronous DCI and asynchronous DCI. Furthermore, based on application, market is classified as resources or server high availability clusters, shared data &real time disaster recovery & business continuity and workload & data mobility.
The data center interconnect market is primarily driven by increase in business flexibility & agility, followed by increase in internet exchanges, improvement in scalability and managing disaster recovery & business continuity. Apart from the major benefits, factors hampering the demand include the improved bandwidth, distance between data centers and lack of security. Moreover, few of the opportunities include introduction of IP DCI, use of cloud interconnect and IOT evolution.
The worldwide DCI market is conquered by the North American region followed by Asia Pacific region. The North American market is estimated to grow due to mounting usage of data centers across many businesses across the verticals & owing to its early adoption of the newest technologies. In addition, the growth rate is determined by countries like U.S. in which data centers manage the elevated volume of data produced fueling the market growth. Asia Pacific region is expected to experience a strong growth in the coming future due to the occurrence of emerging economies such as China & India caused by increased use of cloud-based services over the forecast period.
