WAN Optimization Controllers: A Global Multi-Client Research Initiative
San Jose, California (PRWEB) December 05, 2013
Follow us on LinkedIn – GIA invites senior industry executives, domain experts, technologists and market strategists to participate in a comprehensive global research initiative studying the “WAN Optimization Controllers” markets. The study will examine key drivers and trends impacting the market such as growing data center consolidation against a backdrop of IT cost reduction and optimization of infrastructure; increasing emphasis on performance in cloud computing environments; widespread adoption of virtualization, especially server virtualization and the ensuing need for mobility of virtual servers; surging WAN traffic as a result of increased transmission of high memory and high definition content such as video surveillance data, and voice, video conferencing content sharing; growing demand for integrated solutions and vendors’ push to integrate enterprise content delivery network (ECDN) solutions into WAN Optimization Controllers (WOC).
Also known as WAN accelerators, WAN Optimization Controllers are defined as software and hardware designed to help increase data transfer efficiencies across WANs, by mitigating the effects of network congestion, latency and packet loss. Growing emphasis on application performance is helping drive demand for WAN Optimization Controllers (WOC). With IT budgets being cut to the bone, and with the trend towards doing more with less gathering momentum, enterprises are increasingly consolidating their regional datacentres in attempts to reduce operational costs. Centralized datacentres tend to exert increased load on WAN networks, since unlike application delivery in a distributed environment, centralized application delivery makes huge demand on network bandwidth. This thereby results in poor application performance as a result of network congestion. Also, with IT departments increasingly utilizing virtualization and public, private and hybrid cloud technologies to enhance IT agility, application delivery to remote hosts requires increased WAN hops, thus throwing the focus on load balancing and WAN optimization solutions.
Key benefits of WOC driving its adoption among enterprises include faster file transmission speeds over WAN, superior application performance, delivery and response over WAN, elimination of bottlenecks associated with inefficient network protocols such as TCP, and optimized network connectivity between branch offices and the datacenter. WOC also presents a cost effective alternative to expensive investments in faster WAN links for improving WAN network efficiency. The study estimates WAN Optimization Controllers to be a multi-million dollar market worldwide, while more precise market-size and growth projections will be made available during the 2nd stage of report preparation, and data analysis.
The research and analyses will be released shortly in the form of a comprehensive research report. The report by design, will attempt to provide exhaustive analysis, data, trends, market share, market size, statistics, forecasts and competitive intelligence. The report is modeled to offer precise and unbiased, actionable market insights including in-depth segmentation of market sub-sectors, demand estimates and projections and analysis of trends in each of the sectors, identification of leading players, and the competitive structure, among others.
Developed for Manufacturers/Vendors, Strategic Planners, Business Development Executives, Management Consultants, Investment Bankers, Consulting Firms, Marketing & Sales Executives, C-Level Decision Makers, Market Strategists and Technology Domain Experts, the report helps identify the biggest opportunities in this space and offers accurate latent demand forecasting that empowers quantitative decision making among existing market players and new entrants.
