Whether the topic is 5G, IoT, quantum computing or any combination of the latest IT buzzwords, the message is always consistent. Speed, uptime, reliability, an efficient transfer of data and more processing power will be required. While cloud and software-driven networking strategies have gained significant momentum in the past 5 years, the reality is that data center hardware remains a key component of most enterprise IT networks and will remain so for years to come. So what happens when we reach the physical limits of what data center hardware can support? This session will explore these edges and limits and offer realistic strategies to plan for the inevitability that we will soon be living in a future where the speed of light is too slow for the hardware on which it must pass through.
