Cavium (now Marvell) is the next hope for ARM-based CPUs in the data centerJuly 17, 2018In 2017, Cavium, Qualcomm, and Applied Micro were all sampling ARM-based SoCs targeted at data center servers. With Applied Micro spinning off its server CPU business to newly founded Ampere Computing and Qualcomm demonstrating no tangible design wins after announcing commercial availability for its Centriq SoC in November 2017, hopes for success of an ARM-based CPU ecosystem moved to Cavium, and in 2017 Cavium kept the design wins and partnership announcements coming. In January, Atos announced Cavium’s ThunderX2 will power its HPC for the EU-funded Mont Blanc project. In March, Cavium announced a partnership with Microsoft and in November revealed designs for a Cavium-powered Project Olympus OCP server. In May, Gigabyte, Ingrasys, and Inventec announced and subsequently launched new servers based on ThunderX2. In June, Penguin announced its Open Compute server lineup will feature a ThunderX2 sku.

Machine learning beginning to shape data center infrastructureMay 22, 2018The terms AI (artificial intelligence) and ML (machine learning) have become common technology buzzwords. Simply defined, AI is applying traits of human intelligence to computers. ML is a subset of AI, where inputs are mapped to outputs to derive meaningful patterns. Businesses and analysts alike are touting how transformative AI and ML can be, fueled by massive amounts of data from the always increasing IoT (internet of things) ecosystem. While other buzzwords have come and gone without much of a tangible impact, AI doesn’t seem to fit into that category. AI is reaching far and wide, from manufacturing floors to supply chain management, and even to the operation of data centers themselves. Many enterprises are still planning and piloting different AI applications to understand how it can transform their businesses, but data centers are already providing an early use case of a successful AI application.
Arista sets its sights on the campusMay 08, 2018A few months ago, I was asked by a client whether I thought it possible that Arista will enter the campus networking market. Everything’s a possibility, I thought, but this one seems far-fetched. Arista’s current switching products aren’t geared toward the campus (lack of 1G and PoE offerings), and more importantly, Arista doesn’t have a wireless networking portfolio...Subscribers Only
Trends led by open infrastructure architectures vendors can leverageMay 07, 2018For many traditional vendors, the market’s move to open infrastructure architecture is frightening. Many vendors see the move to open infrastructure as a driving force of the commoditization of infrastructure components. They fear customers seeking open products will only buy the cheapest IT racks or stop using products, like rPDUs. However, this fear has not materialized.
Cloud services to reach $374 billion in 2022, as AI and machine learning integrations flourishMay 04, 2018The off-premises cloud service market is expected to reach $374 billion in 2022, at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.7 percent.
Huawei Analyst Summit 2018: Carrier networks at a crossroadsMay 02, 2018The 2018 Huawei Global Analyst Summit was, as usual, a large, lavish, and information-packed affair. From executive-level insights into the overall direction of the business to more in-depth and detailed insights on Huawei technology across a wide range of areas, this year’s event provided a good overall view of the state of the telecommunications industry with a primary focus on business in China and Asia. A key takeaway is that the carrier networks business is at a crossroads—and it is not clear at this stage whether 5G will be able to come to the rescue. The consumer and enterprise segments, supplemented by a new business addressing public cloud services, anchored growth for the company in 2017.

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.
