 Extreme Networks, Inc. today announced that it has continued to grow its share in the global data center Ethernet market.  Extreme Networks’ growth during Q2, according to The Dell’Oro Group, was highlighted by impressive gains with its fixed 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), purpose built “Top of Rack” switching solutions, as reported in The Dell’Oro Group’s most recent market share update. 

Extreme Networks commanded the #2 revenue position for data center Top-of-Rack switches according to the quarterly market share report, behind only Cisco, driven by its industry leading Summit® X650, Summit X450 and Summit X480 switches.  In the “Top of Rack” switch port shipment category, Extreme Networks increased its port shipments by 194% compared to the same quarter one year ago. This demonstrates continued momentum for the Company in the dynamic and demanding data center Ethernet market. 

10 GbE is becoming the connection of choice beyond the network core, at the edge and for aggregation, as it provides an answer to surging deployment of very high performance servers and bandwidth demanding applications.

“The most significant network upgrade ever witnessed in the data center space has just begun as customers start migrating servers from multiple 1,000 Mbps connections to two 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections," said Alan Weckel, Director of Ethernet Switch Market Research at Dell’Oro Group, based in Redwood Shores, Calif.  “10 GbE Top-of-Rack switches will be one of the growth drivers going forward in this market transition"


Extreme Networks global customers, including The Limited, a leading national retailer, the
Austrian Ministry of the Interior and Profitability.net, a managed hosting provider, continue their adoption of Extreme’s Four Pillar data center strategy, enabling a seamless migration from physical networks, to virtual networks and to cloud-based data center networks.

“Extreme Networks momentum in the data center segment continues to accelerate as customers drive their purchase decisions towards our innovations, performance and vision,” said Aziz Ala’ali, Regional Director for Extreme Networks, Middle East & Africa..  “The Dell’Oro report confirms the success of our data center vision and 10 Gigabit Ethernet products.”
