See why a 5G car is like the datacenter of tomorrow

See how a 5G remote controlled car demo can evoke the same principle as datacenter automation, which is going to spur a re-examination of datacenter design paradigms and the future of digitial transformation. Check out videos of both the 5G demo from Mobile World Congress and of our Jason Hoffman giving his insight on the datacenter of tomorrow.

Why does telecom need cloud?

So you’re a successful telecom provider. Maybe you’re global, but most likely, you dominate one particular region. And now you want to become a cloud services provider. How do you know you have the right tools?

Do you know how to protect your high temperature datacenter?

New, industrial grade, data-intensive applications create the need for a new, more decentralized infrastructure. This infrastructure must cater to the evolution of NFV as it comes to be deployed on all types of network sites. It must also provide new value to support application use cases.

Can an open source datacenter be as efficient as recycling in Sweden?

Sweden is good at recycling. So good, in fact, that only 1 percent of the country’s waste ends up in a landfill. Interestingly, Sweden’s efficient use of waste is a good analog for various efficiencies of a hyperscale datacenter.

Open source for distributed data collection at the Open Compute Summit

 Everything is a datacenter - your smartphone, your laptop, even the connected devices in your home like your connected thermostat.  Every single one of these devices has compute, storage, networking and a set of services and applications running in an operating system that connect into the broader fabric we know today as the cloud. One of the emerging challenges in today’s device dominated world is managing all of these endpoints.

Hyperscale raises the bar. Your RFIs should follow suit

Traditional datacenters are famously outdated and ill-equipped to handle the future. Sluggish and unpredictable, they are perceived to be unresponsive to the needs of the businesses they serve. They were designed as silos of excellence. Compute, storage, and networking infrastructure was segregated into separate domains, each separately procured, scaled, and updated, with no cross-collaboration. Lack of transparency meant stranded resources and compliance challenges.

The result was an unwieldy juggernaut that seemed to have lost sight of why datacenters exist in the first place: to provide the best experience for applications, the lifeblood of businesses.

You need to see tomorrow's cloud infrastructure today at Mobile World Congress

You really wish you were at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona right now – and so do I! Because we'd get to see in action Ericsson’s Future Digital Infrastructure (FDI) display, a prototype for the datacenters of the future. If you are there, you can watch the robotic arm move, hear the sounds it makes, and discuss it with my friend and colleague Seamus Keane – he's probably standing right there in front of it.

Intel® Rack Scale Design - a dramatic evolution in datacenter infrastructure

Data is the new life blood, and companies in every industry are putting data at the center of their business. This is the next wave of digital industrialization, and it requires a dramatic evolution in the way in which datacenter infrastructure is architected and managed.
