The rise of content- and social-driven businesses such as Facebook, Google, Baidu and others is causing a shift in data center design. Using more open source and user-developed software, these data centers don’t just support the business – they ARE the business. These new models have prompted a move to explore and adopt innovative technologies that deliver significant cost advantages.
The new and different computing loads required by the always-on, always-connected lifestyle these companies enable require a better balance of performance, storage and networking loads on the back end to ensure a killer user experience.
