ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
COVID-19 has accelerated the need for network, cloud, and data centre services. There has been a monumental shift in the demand curve for bandwidth-intensive network services and applications. At the heart of this digital transformation is the data centre, with service demand increasing in parallel with other technologies and applications. With all the pressure to innovate and digitally transform from businesses, what do you do when your data centre struggles to keep up.
There is an increasing amount of high-performance computing and big data workloads. With this massive growth in data, and this all needs to be stored somewhere. So, data centre storage capacity will need to expand significantly over time. Hyperconverged systems, hybrid storage environments, edge storage applications will increase significantly. Faster storage requires faster networks.
This one-hour panel will discuss the seismic industry shifts taking place during 2020, leaders across the data centre and network infrastructure sector will discuss this new accelerated era beyond 2020 as we sit at the intersection of evolving technologies and new revenue streams for data centre operators.
