Global Software-Defined Data Center Market Forecast to 2023 – Increased Uptime and Ease of Failover / Reduced Opex and Capex / Increasing Need for Unified Management

DUBLIN, April 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The “Software-Defined Data Center Market by Component (Hardware, Software, and Service), Type (Software-Defined Compute, Software-Defined Storage & Software-Defined Data Center Networking), Organization Size, Vertical & Region – Global Forecast to 2023” report has been added to’s offering.

The global Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) market size is expected to grow from USD 33.5 billion in 2018 to USD 96.5 billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 23.6% during the forecast period.

SDDC enables unified management and monitoring of data center resources, empowering faster allocation of computing, storage, and network resources using a single point of control that is delivered by SDDC solution. However, traditional data centers face issues with integration of servers, networks, and storage infrastructure in the data center through SDDC technologies. These factors may restrict the adoption of SDDC.

Hardware segment to hold the largest market size during the forecast period

SDDC combines vendor-agnostic hardware with software-driven intelligence. Moreover, it enables the execution of applications entirely on the logically defined resources that are abstracted from the underlying hardware. Owing to the hardware agnostic nature of the SDDC architecture, SDDC can be implemented even on basic hardware configurations. SDDC can be deployed by using multiple hardware approaches, such as integrating SDDC with traditional hardware, converged infrastructure, hyperconverged infrastructure, and composable infrastructure.

Software-defined computing segment to fuel the SDDC market during the forecast period

Software-Defined Computing (SDC) is a mature and widely adopted technology from leading vendors, such as Microsoft, Citrix, and VMware, and served by multiple products. SDC facilitates virtualization and aggregation of computing resources into resource pools. These resource pools are provisioned and offered based on availability and computing requirements. It is used to divide physical servers into multiple isolated virtual environments. SDC provides software tools that facilitate the efficient and dynamic allocation of workloads across servers in the system. The computer resources are managed through a central interface and can be allocated and reallocated based on requirements.

North America to hold the largest market size in 2018, while Asia Pacific to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

North America is estimated to hold the largest market size in the global SDDC market in 2018. The region is considered as most mature in the SDDC market, as there is a presence of most large enterprises. This region is home to some of the leading, well-established suppliers, as well as end-user verticals, in the global SDDC market. Organizations shifting toward SDDC solutions and services, and increasing adoption of digital business strategies are the major factors that are expected to drive the adoption of SDDC offerings in North America.

On the other hand, the SDDC market in APAC is expected to witness exponential growth to become the fastest-growing region. The rising awareness of data management through a common interface at a reduced cost of ownership, the growing focus on server virtualization, and the increasing popularity of using infrastructure-as-a-service solutions are the major growth drivers for the SDDC market in APAC.
