The data center fabric is an integrated system of multiple switches and servers employed for facilitating the communication of data between server and switch nodes. It is used in a network consisting of servers, storage units and other peripherals. The fabric is depicted by a spine and leaf design, in which, connected devices are shown on the leaves, while switches are placed on the spine. This structure improves network performance and ensures optimal processing and communication while providing flexible configuration options for scalability and future technologies. Owing to these benefits, it finds extensive applications across the banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), information technology (IT), healthcare and infotainment sectors.
The increasing adoption of cloud computing, big data tools and multi-tier data center architectures across the globe are among the key factors driving the growth of the market. In comparison to the traditionally used alternatives, data center fabric solutions are proven to provide advanced security to sensitive data and information of the enterprises. Furthermore, the increasing internet penetration and widespread utilization of interactive applications are escalating the demand for improved data networks and extensive storage facilities that are supported by data center fiber solutions. Apart from this, the emerging trend of the virtualization of data centers has enhanced the product utilization for agility and efficiency in organizational tasks and cloud implementations. Other factors, including various technological advancements and research and development (R&D) for facilitating automation across industries and reducing overall operating costs, are projected to drive the market further.
