Return to growth for ADCs, while WAN optimization slips further year-over-year

 

Campbell, CALIFORNIA, September 5, 2013—Market research firm Infonetics Research released market share and preliminary analysis from its 2nd quarter 2013 (2Q13) Data Center Network Equipment report. (Full report will be published on September 9.)


ANALYST NOTE

“Things are looking more positive for the application delivery controller (ADC) market. Previously delayed tier 1 projects are back on track, and enterprise spending in North America is picking up,” reports Cliff Grossner, Ph.D., Infonetics Research’s new directing analyst for data center and cloud.


“The WAN optimization market isn’t as rosy, but what could bring this market back to life is the growing demand for cloud services, which can benefit from a smart device at the branch office that enhances the delivery of cloud services over the WAN,” notes Matthias Machowinski, directing analyst for enterprise networks and video at Infonetics Research. “But so far cloud services have yet to become a demand driver.”


2Q13 DATA CENTER MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • Globally, application data controller (ADC) revenue grew 7% in 2Q13 from 1Q13, and is also up 4% from the year-ago 2nd quarter
  • F5 continues to lead the pack in ADCs; Citrix and Radware round out the top 3
  • WAN optimization sales got a temporary bump in 2Q13, but the segment remains on an overall downward trajectory, declining 11% from 2Q12
  • The top 4 vendors in the WAN optimization space are, in rank order, Riverbed, Cisco, Blue Coat and Citrix
