Research and Markets: Global Board-to-Board and Rack-Based Optical Interconnects Market Forecasts & Opportunities 2013-2020

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5db2s9/revenue) has announced the addition of the "Global Board-to-Board and Rack-Based Optical Interconnects Market Forecasts & Opportunities 2013-2020" report to their offering.

All the usual suspects that drive the proliferation of fiber optics in the data center will apply: faster processors, bulky copper cables and more video. But in this report the author claims that two new factors will drive optical interconnection in the data center in the next few years.

One of these factors is the rise of big data, The author expects that massively parallel computing - with thousands of CPUs deployed in 100s of racks - will become part of general business computing in large data centers. High-speed optical interconnection in this computing environment is a necessity to avoid the interconnection bottleneck.

Meanwhile, power consumption is becoming increasingly important, because of the rising real cost of energy and because of current environmental policy trends. According to one source, large data centers can consume the equivalent of nearly 180,000 homes. As a result, replacing copper interconnection with low-power optical interconnection has become an imperative for the truly green data center. Not only does the switch to optical interconnection save power directly but it also cuts down on the need for air conditioning in the data center.

In addition to an in-depth analysis of the optical interconnect market, this report also discusses the activities of:

  • Avago
  • BinOptics
  • Cisco
  • Corning
  • Dell
  • FCI
  • Finisar
  • Juniper and Kotura

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, represent...
My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction. In order for IoT to reach its potential, smart devices must be able to work together. Today, there are a slew of interoperability standards being promoted by big names to make this happen: HomeKit, Brillo and Alljoyn. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.
Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
