Collaborative meeting services grew 10 percent in 2017April 17, 2018Worldwide revenue for collaborative meeting services (video and web conferencing) grew 10 percent in 2017, totaling $2.5 billion. Growth was driven by the need for better communication tools to bridge geographic divides between employees, partners and customers; the continuing adoption of unified communications; and the shift from in-house infrastructure deployments to a cloud delivery model.
Upcoming Report - Data Center Power DistributionApril 16, 2018In past years, colocation providers would cite space as the primary limiting factor in a data center. However, in recent years that primary limitation has changed to power. More efficient data center power distribution designs are becoming an even more critical element of a data center build or refresh. To support this renewed and growing interest in data center power distribution products, IHS Markit will complete the third edition of their report on this market.

45.4 billion internet connectable devices in 2021 – Changing the future of colocationsMarch 05, 2018IHS Markit forecast internet connectable devices to grow from 27.5 billion in 2017 to 45.4 billion in 2021; a 65% increase in just four years. What does this mean for the colocation market? Well first, it’s certainly a positive driver for colocation revenue growth; however, it’s not the 1:1 ratio many industry enthusiasts once thought. Second, it’s giving colocation service providers a new opportunity to assist with the aggregation and connectivity of new end-points and data sources.
AMD partners with HPE and Dell EMC, turns up the heat on IntelFebruary 13, 2018In 2017, AMD changed the market dynamic for entry-level enterprise servers with its EPYC SoC, providing not just healthy competition but also opportunities for new designs utilizing the large number of memory channels and high I/O bandwidth available with EPYC. OEMs like Supermicro, Sugon, and Asus and white box server vendors like Wiwynn, Inventec, Gigabyte, and Tyan quickly backed EPYC, introducing over a dozen server models based on AMD’s SoC in 2H17. CSPs (cloud service providers) also embraced EPYC with Microsoft, Baidu, Tencent and JD.com all adopting EPYC-based servers. Baidu in particular boosted EPYC’s credibility in the market as it implemented a new 1-socket server design that utilizes EPYC’s memory channels and I/O bandwidth.

UPS installed base highlights effects of data center consolidationJanuary 29, 2018The data center industry is thriving – so it would seem. Cloud and colocation service providers top the headlines, citing significant double-digit growth and billion-dollar mergers and acquisitions. But not every piece of the data center puzzle is on cloud nine. Suppliers of centralized data center infrastructure, such as UPS, cooling, and power distribution, remain grounded, as data center consolidation, virtualization, and new design trends have absorbed much of the potential growth of our increasingly digital world. As Cloud and colocation service providers are forecast to continue to grow, while data center consolidation continues, should more turbulent times be expected for data center infrastructure suppliers? Possibly, but developing trends of hybrid cloud, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and edge data center deployments provide hope for a brighter future for these infrastructure suppliers.
China sets its sights on the optical components marketJanuary 18, 2018In January 2018, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) released its Optoelectronic Devices Industry Technology Roadmap, a five-year plan to improve China’s capabilities in the optoelectronics industry. Although the plan spans a wide range of fundamental technologies in the optical domain, there is a strong focus on optical communications devices, which will have a significant impact on the global optical components industry supporting optical transport and networking.

Moore’s law still alive in the data center, but is it enough?January 09, 2018When Gordon Moore made the observation that the number of transistors in an integrated circuit doubles every two years, known as Moore’s law, he also predicted technological limitations would eventually lead to the end of this era, with successive generations either seeing less than 2x growth in transistor count or taking longer than two years. An argument that we have already reached these limitations is currently supported by the lag between Intel’s 14 nm and 10 nm PC CPU introduction. Additionally, silicon manufacturers have questioned the investment required to maintain Moore’s law, with Samsung reporting Moore’s law affordability challenges in 2016 and TSMC’s quarterly earnings showing wafer revenue from advanced process technology dropping between 2008 and 2016.
