Market research firm Infonetics
Research released excerpts from its 1st quarter 2014
and Converged Data Center Network Equipment report, which
tracks storage area network (SAN) Fibre Channel switches and host bus
adapters (HBAs), converged data center network adapters, and switch
ports-in-use for storage.
"With 16G Fibre Channel ramping fast, 8G is making a quick exit," says Cliff
Grossner, Ph.D., directing analyst for data center and cloud at Infonetics
Research. "16G Fibre Channel solutions now make up 42% of storage
area network (SAN) revenue, and we expect to see the continued
acceleration of 16G at the expense of 8G and 4G, especially with 32G
still two years out."
"Most of the 16G market is inter-switch, or switch-to-storage array, and
not server connections," adds Grossner.
