As organizations scale their digital business initiatives, they must balance practical considerations such as equipment refresh and growing capacity while also strategically improving business operations and maximizing agility in the data center. IT leaders must select vendors who satisfy the near-term requirements while also maintaining strategic vision to carry them through the next few years.
Gartner's 2018 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Networking gives an assessment of the current data center networking solutions for enterprises, and evaluates where they fall on the ability to execute as well as their completeness of vision. The research included in this report also points out some interesting trends and predictions, such as:
- "The percentage of manual data center networking operational activities will fall below 50% by 2021, down from 80% today"
- "Adoption of containers and microservices are growing substantially...vendors increasingly investing in integrations to simplify management and orchestration in containerized environments"
- "The predominant networking server access port speed will shift from 10Gbps today to 25 Gbps during 1Q20"
