"A goal without a
plan, is just a wish," is one of the phrases of Antoine de
Saint-Exupéry, author of "The Little Prince," and it’s a phrase with which
I began my talk, "Envisioning The Future.” Why? Well, today there are several
trends that are impacting data centers, and although corporate administrators
and directors want to embrace these trends, the managers must first know the
trends and know each other before they can turn that dream into a goal with a
are listening to many things, which makes everything difficult to process. For
example, the change in business models and 5G connectivity is increasing
network deployments, and data growth is driving cloud use. All this impacts the
way managers should see and plan for the future.
CLICK TO TWEET: CommScope's Carlos Morrison Fell provides you with four trends that will benefit your data center.
What are the key
trends that are impacting data centers so deeply?
- Data centers will continue to grow. By 2021 global internet traffic will
increase up to three times. Imagine the amount of data!
- The role of hyperscale data centers. Speed and
innovation are two terms that define these data centers, pushing manufacturers and
designers to evolve rapidly.
- New network architectures. Speeds of up to 400Gbps
force interconnected architectures that support virtualization and unimagined
- FOG Computing. As if it were science fiction, today
the devices communicate with each other, but not all data centers are ready to support
IoT. Are you, or will your data center become obsolete?
All these trends
are driving great advances, but as I said at the beginning, before we can draw
up a plan, the dream begins with knowing: technologies, trends, their strengths
and weaknesses. Following this method, a dream became
a goal, a goal an objective, and all of it became a strategy.
Your ability to
prepare for these challenges will define whether your data center will offer
the innovation that new trends require or will become obsolete in a short time.
We are ready for the future, the question is, are you?
