This IDC study highlights the rapidly emerging software-defined networking (SDN) market and its associated ecosystem in Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan). As SDN start-ups and other market leaders bring additional products and SDN technologies to market, customers will have more choices not only in what products they purchase but also in how they design and build their datacenter networks to support application workloads.
"Virtualization and cloud computing will boost the innovation drive in network architecture and operations and SDN is a response to that. As Asia/Pacific enterprises start embracing it, vendors in the ecosystem need to play the pathfinder role to educate and build awareness among channels and customers in their SDN journey," says Surjyadeb Goswami, research manager, Enterprise Computing, IDC Asia/Pacific.
