Fiber channel networking is a high-speed networking technology for sending data using blocks and not as files. A block in fiber channel networking refers to raw data of structured size that changes into a file when combined with other blocks determined by the application. Various hardware solutions are required to accommodate a fiber channel networking infrastructure, just like in an Ethernet network.         

Fiber Channel Networking: Market Drivers and Challenges

Companies like NetApp are innovating file-based storage and Network-attached Storage (NAS), but Storage Area Networks (SANs) with block storage on top of fiber channel networking are the stalwart that will not go away. IBM mainframes and supercomputers use fiber channel networking to use data that only ever seems to grow.

Terabyte-level SANs are not that impressive today, as advanced SANs are available that easily exceed a petabyte. Fiber channel networking market will soon witness SANs that are capable of exceeding the Exabyte market. File-based data and Ethernet networking cannot handle such huge volume of information, thus creating high demand for fiber channel networking in the global market.

However, fiber channel networking demands high initial expenditure, and the hardware solutions creating the network require timely maintenance. This factor is estimated to challenge the growth of the global finer channel networking market, as small and medium sized enterprises cannot afford to procure such expensive solutions. Also, several industry standards have been introduced for fiber channel networking technology. Varied interpretations of such standards by market participants have in turn resulted in development of solutions that often cannot function together on the same network infrastructure.

Fiber Channel Networking Market: Segmentation

The global fiber channel networking market can been segmented on the basis of solution and vertical.

With respect to solution, the global fiber channel networking market may be segmented into:

  • Hardware
    • Host Bus Adapters (HBA)
    • Fiber Channel Switch

Impact of Ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic on Fiber Channel Networking Market

Large enterprises are estimated to continue adopting fiber channel networking solutions for efficient data storage and security as lockdowns imposed by national governments require employees to work from their homes. Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) operating in industries where huge volumes of data is generated at a regular interval are estimated to accelerate the procurement of fiber channel networking solutions. However, SMEs dealing with low volumes of data are estimated to stick with Ethernet-based and file-based networking. The overall estimates suggest that enterprise spending on networking technologies is estimated to increase during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
