The market for compute infrastructure in cloud provider and enterprise centralized data centers, and at edge locations is in the middle of several transitions driven by digitization of business processes and consumer lifestyles. To meet new digitization requirements, workloads are becoming highly distributed, more demanding on compute resources, require parallel operations on larger data sets, and need low latency and high bandwidth connectivity. Hyperscale cloud service providers (Cloud SPs) have responded by driving new compute architectures, with tier-2 cloud providers, communication service providers (Comm SPs) and enterprises following their lead. This talk will discuss market transitions to the cloud, edge, and adoption of AI techniques impacting compute, networking and storage equipment spend by Cloud SPs, Comm SPs and enterprise; transitions in data center physical infrastructure including backup power, IT enclosure designs and cooling; and trends in data center builds by cloud and colocation service providers.
