Market Overview 

Market Research Future (MRFR)’s new study confirms that the software-defined data center market size 2020 can advance at a rate of 16% between 2017 and 2023 (evaluation period), despite the COVID-19 impact. We will provide COVID-19 impact analysis with the report, offering detailed market developments following the coronavirus disease outbreak. 

Top Boosters and Key Challenges 

Dealing with the massive ramifications of the COVID-19 outbreak, several firms in the worldwide technology industry had to face a huge financial crunch. A majority of them had to shut down their factories or stop traveling to carry out their business. Prominent events such as the Mobile World Congress, Google I/O, Geneva Motor Show and Facebook's F8 were called off because of the lockdown due to the pandemic. Employees are working from home to curb the spread of SARS-CoV-2. With that said, to overcome the challenges posed by the novel coronavirus, enterprises are focusing significantly on return on investment/ROI, business continuity strategies as well as operational resiliency. The situation has resulted in greater demand for stronger software-defined data centers, to facilitate better functioning of automation along with preventing the need for manual tasks and provision of rule-based servers.

In fact, COVID-19 has boosted the demand for a better organized IT infrastructure, a rising need for efficient data centers and a higher uptake of cloud computing, which can be highly favorable for the software-defined data center market. Software-defined data center/SDDC has managed to change how enterprises monitor or manage their IT infrastructure, thereby gaining massive attention from world’s leading IT giants. Besides, the SDDC’s ability to efficiently streamline all the data center operations, high flexibility and virtualization also add to its appeal across industries.
