650 Group Launches New Data Center Ethernet Switching Report Focused Exclusively on the Enterprise Market
Arista, Cisco, Juniper, White Box, and SONiC Market Shares Differ Materially Between the Enterprise Market and the Cloud Market
INCLINE VILLAGE, NEV. – Aug. 26, 2021 – An upcoming report by 650 Group, a leading Market Intelligence Research firm for communications, data center, and cloud markets, provides unique insight into the differences of Ethernet Switches deployed into Enterprises networks compared to Cloud data centers.
15 years ago, the Ethernet Switch market began a fundamental change when vendors began engineering purpose-built switches expressly for data center market and others for the campus network market instead of using just one platform for both. For Cisco, it was the creation of its branded Nexus product family, Juniper the QFX, Arista and a class of “white box” switch companies entered the market soon after, leveraging Broadcom merchant silicon sourcing strategies. 650 Group’s new report reflects the fact that the data center Ethernet Switch market today has further split into two unique areas, cloud and enterprise. This new report reflects the idea that the needs of the enterprises are different than that of the cloud hyperscalers.
"Today, there is specific demand for different kinds of Data Center Ethernet Switches – one set for enterprises and another for cloud. As the two product sets diverged, vendors have specialized on one or the other. For instance, the Enterprise market is focused on 25 Gbps and 100 Gbps speeds, while the Cloud market has moved to 400 Gbps and beyond," said Alan Weckel, Founder and Technology Analyst at 650 Group. "Enterprise vendors now use specialized switch semiconductors that are unique to the Enterprise segment. The vendors also offer Enterprise-specific software features that support multi-cloud strategies spanning the premise, colocation, and cloud facilities.
Switches built for the enterprises now have unique specifications compared to those built for the Cloud, and the market share that vendors have in each market differs between Enterprise and Cloud. For instance, Cisco's market share in the Enterprise is over 30 points higher than its Cloud market share. We are excited to expand our research to create a new report focused on this exciting, multi-billion part of the Ethernet Switch market."
The Quarterly Ethernet Switch – Data Center – Enterprise report includes segmentation on a regional and worldwide basis and provides market data for the China and non-China markets. The report contains the difference in market shares in China and its three leading vendors: H3C, Huawei, and Ruijie. The report also focuses on the non-China market and its four prominent vendors: Arista, Cisco, Dell, and Juniper. White box remains minimal in the enterprise segment. Future reports will include subscription, Network-as-a-Service, and hybrid-cloud segmentation.

650 Group’s Latest Cloud Market Report Shows US Hyperscalers Set Cloud Revenue and CAPEX Records in 2Q’21
Semiconductor and Supply Chain Shortages Limit Data Center Buildouts
Incline Village, NV. August 23, 2021 — According to a newly released report issued by the 650 Group, US hyperscaler cloud market revenue grew 43% Y/Y in 2Q21 while the supply chain for Data Center Equipment into hyperscalers performed unevenly due to continued semiconductor and component shortages.
650 Group’s Cloud Report covers Colocation, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), SaaS, and Search & Social for companies such as Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google and Microsoft.
“2Q21 IaaS revenue hit a record, far exceeding 4Q20’s previous revenue record,” said Alan Weckel, founding analyst for 650 Group. “IaaS continues to increase in influence throughout the entire component and semiconductor supply chain. The number of applications that enterprises and consumers use each day continues to increase, and the majority of those applications exist in hyperscalers IaaS data centers. Many critical components for cloud data center build-outs during the quarter remain constrained.”
o Search and Social revenue surges. Google and Facebook remain dominant, but the rest of the market shows signs of gaining ground
o IaaS revenue growth was robust as many enterprises rely on the cloud to support their new-normal hybrid workforce and environments
o US Hyperscaler made approximately $1M in cloud revenue every minute during 2Q21
o Supply Constraints remain in 2Q21 related to COVID-19 and trade war events
o Hyperscalers are poised to ramp next-generation server and networking architectures over the next two years
o US Hyperscaler Revenue is Nearly 10X the size of Chinese Hyperscaler Revenue in 1H21
o US Hyperscaler influence on the supply chain is increasing
The Cloud reports include CAPEX studies for the Colocation, IaaS, SaaS, and Search and Social Media markets, including a unique look at spending specifically for data center equipment. Going beyond just cloud revenue provides a unique look into where and how the largest cloud providers deploy equipment. In the report, you can see the trend towards more CAPEX spending occurring in IaaS as many SaaS providers choose IaaS instead of building out their own infrastructure.
