Survey finds DC managers want more efficiency, not horsepower

February 19, 2019 / Ashton Young

More servers and more CPU power used to be the answer to boosting data centre performance, but it appears this is no longer the case. A new research report conducted by Futuriom and sponsored by Mellanox Technologies - ‘Untold Secrets of the Efficient Data Center’ - asserts with the deceleration of Moore’s Law (the observation that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles about every two years) and the drive for domain-specific processors and edge computing, there is a growing focus on solutions to optimise network efficiency. The report was based on the responses from more than 200 director level or higher data centre professionals from the US, the UK, and China to dig deeper into how they’re addressing the challenge of supporting high-power applications like artificial intelligence and big data analytics across public, private, and hybrid clouds, by examining their actual working practices and the key trends.
