Digital disruption across most market sectors is continuing to drive the need for higher performance infrastructure within the burgeoning data centre market. Enterprises in financial services, media, e-health and retail, especially online, are at the forefront of phenomenal growth in data traffic. A consequence is a future where a high percentage of that traffic will be within the data centre environment across machine-to-machine applications, utilising technologies such as AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Learning) to communicate petabytes of data daily. Physical infrastructure architects are now scrutinising the latest and next generation products and platforms to ensure data centres have the capability to scale exponentially to satisfy this data traffic requirement.
In the article below, Dr. Rick Pimpinella of Panduit, describes factors that accelerate the transformation in the data center and its impact on the physical infrastructure.
