Smart. Between 2010 and 2018, global IP traffic increased more than tenfold, while global data center storage capacity increased by a factor of 25 in parallel.
Over the same time period, the number of computer instances (virtual machines) running on the world’s servers increased more than sixfold. This increased demand requires new data center ingenuity and design that complements existing and future transport architectures.
Traditional big data centers will not be able to meet the growing requirements.
We often hear the terms edge data center or hybrid data center, but the truth is designing new dynamic data transport and data storage solutions will be required.
