Type:  White Paper
Length:  5 pages

recent article by Steve Gillaspy of Intel outlined many of the challenges faced by those responsible for designing, operating, and sustaining the IT and physical support infrastructure found in today’s data centers. This paper targets four of the five macro trends discussed by Gillaspy, as well as the top 10 concerns for today's data center managers:

Hyper Growth and Hyperscale
Edge and cloud computing are seeing rampant growth, causing the build-out of new data centers both large and small, with growth coming so fast that traditional approaches to construction and management are unable to keep up.

Hyper Density
The need to minimize OPEX and CAPEX costs while increasing the efficiency of the data center is causing a drive towards consolidation, virtualization, and containerization on the compute side, while the increasing number of both data sources and data consumers is driving the growth in demand for storage capacity.

New Workloads
Big data, AI/ML/DL, Internet of Things (IoT) and other new types of workloads are placing increasing demands on most data centers and networks.

New Hardware
Specialized silicon is now being deployed in many data centers, with the intent of improving throughput and latency in support of the new workloads; FPGAs and ASICS for AI, GPUs for AI and cryptocurrency mining.
