In the past, I was forced to limit the size of my mail folder. Now those days are gone. The relative costs of storage versus manual deleting have changed. Today it’s cheaper to keep information rather than spend the time deleting it and occasionally experiencing issues with lost data. What’s more, it’s now easy to rapidly expand storage and compute capacity by allocating it to resources in the cloud on demand and in real time. All you need is a fast and secure connection to the data center ...

Networking has long relied on proprietary architecture, particularly on the transport layer. The thinking behind this is that while single-vendor solutions tend to be more expensive, they are also more reliable and easier to manage than a collection of interoperable boxes.

But this attitude is quickly coming to an end as new technologies and new data networking requirements fuel demand for open and disaggregated solutions ...

Enterprise infrastructure has become increasingly dependent on the cloud, which is naturally leading to growing concerns about data security.

While the cloud in many ways offers better security than the traditional on-premises data center, this should not obscure the fact that complex architectures tend to have more vulnerabilities than simple ones, and the cloud is nothing if not complex ...

The enterprise is quickly expanding its cloud environment to a hybrid multi-cloud architecture. Where once a single provider enabled little more than bulk storage and processing offload, today’s cloud encompasses numerous providers offering services as diverse as disaster recovery, advanced analytics and quantum computing ...

The data center market is about to go through a significant upgrade cycle in technology that has implications for how data center buildout designs evolve. Several new technologies are all going to hit the market at the same time. The industry is moving towards 7nm technology across most of the semiconductor space. At the same time, chiplets are moving front and center as an important building block. 112Gbit/s SerDes, custom-built artificial intelligence (AI) chips, and the adoption of PCI Gen4 are about to be adopted ...
