AvidThink Next-Gen DC Report

May 30, 2019

Data center innovation and growth is largely driven today by the need for efficiency, to handle larger data sets associated with analytics, AI/machine learning, and continued efforts in virtualization and containerization.

At the same time, application architectures are changing data patterns, making east-west data transfer the dominant share of networking traffic. In fact, in the next few years, east-west data traffic is expected to account for more than 80% of all data center traffic, crating a need for ever-increasing network interface speeds ― 50G, 100G, and now 400G.

So how do you make your data center network faster, smarter, more nimble and self-reliant, while still having a clear grasp on all its activity?

AvidThink drills into the drivers, the trends, and the solutions behind each of these future-facing requirements in their latest research report. They discuss:

  • What's driving business and technology transformation today
