The enterprise data center has undergone several major shifts since the introduction of
computing as a business resource. Data centers have evolved from mainframes to client/server
to virtual servers, and then to being “software defned,” and fnally to their current state of disaggregation. Today, we sit on the precipice of the next major data center transition—the evolution
