Demand for faster processing with increasingly diverse applications is prompting very different compute models.
Data centers are undergoing a fundamental change, shifting from standard processing models to more data-centric approaches based upon customized hardware, less movement of data, and more pooling of resources.
Driven by a flood of web searches, Bitcoin mining, video streaming, data centers are in a race to provide the most efficient and fastest processing possible. But because there are so many different types of data, disparities in lifetimes among components, and so much change in software, the magnitude, speed, and breadth of these changes is unprecedented….
