Paula Musich, Senior Analyst, Current Analysis

Internet Research Group:
"The data center is undergoing unprecedented change. First we consolidated servers and storage into fewer and larger data centers for the simple economies of scale and operation. With the growing dominance of the X86 architecture, virtualization enabled a second tier of consolidation with CapEx, OpEx and operational quality benefits, and in turn accelerated the use of new operational and organizational models (utility computing, service oriented IT). This rapid evolution is continuing, fueled by the remarkable progress in multi-core CPU’s and storage technologies. Data center networking is hardly immune to any of this and must evolve in performance, cost performance and even architecture in order not to be the Achilles Heel of all of this. This is a perfect time for a well-funded team of experienced networking leaders to disrupt this market with innovation. "

Peter Christy, Co-Founder & Principal Analyst, Internet Research Group

Servers and Storage:

"When deploying a cloud infrastructure in the data center, network performance, power efficiency, low latency and scalability are all key considerations.
