Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) Market Overview and Introduction

Software-Defined Infrastructure (SDI) is referred to as fully-virtualized computer, storage, & networking resources that can be managed by software. It has various components including physical infrastructure, virtualization layers, software-defined capabilities, management services, intelligent virtualization, software-driven innovation, modular design, context awareness, performance-focused, policy-based systems, and open-source driven. These are the main software components that control almost all IT-related workloads in the organization. The technology is still in its nascent phase of a full-fledged SDI model. Also, software-defined networking and software-defined storage are the two main building blocks that are yet to be standardized. However, increasing R&D activities and investments in the Software-Defined Infrastructure market are expected to create tremendous opportunities in the coming year.

In the era of digitization and monetization, organizations have been shifting from traditional, heavy iron to general-purpose x86 servers, which is a major factor driving the operating market. Additionally, rising investments for CSPs in SDN technology to automate network infrastructure are expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, the growing demand for cloud-based services due to its advantages and server virtualization is supplementing the market growth. Furthermore, the emergence of 5G-based software-defined networking and the development of open source SDI are expected to create new opportunities during the forecast period. However, lack of awareness regarding the benefits offered by SDI in certain geographical areas is limiting the market growth. Also, reliability and security concerns associated with the software-defined networks are hampering the market growth across the globe.

The global Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) market can be segmented into type, service, organization size, end-use vertical, and region.

Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) Market By Type

Based on type, the market can be segmented into storage controller, computing software, and networking software. The networking software segment is expected to grow with a healthy CAGR during the forecast period. The growth for this segment can be attributed to the growing demand for server virtualization and data center consolidation across the globe. Also, the reduction in CAPEX and OPEX is supplementing the growth of this segment. Moreover, the emergence of 5G technology and the increasing adoption of the IoT is expected to create new opportunities for this segment.

Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) Market By Organization Size

Based on organization size, the market can be segmented into small & medium size and large size. Large size organizations accounted for the largest market share in 2019 and will continue their dominance throughout the forecast period. Most large size organizations have been adopting SDI as it saves operational cost and time to resolve the respective issues.

Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) Market By End-Use Vertical

Based on end-use vertical, the market can be segmented into manufacturing, telecommunications, automotive, retail, BFSI, government & defense, and healthcare. The telecommunications segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to the growing utilization of SDI for orchestration tools such as controllers by telecom service providers. Also, SDI enables telecom service providers to offer advanced features, such as on-demand advanced malware protection and cloud-based URL filtering. This is further supplementing the market growth for this segment.

Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) Market By Region
