The power of Big Data and new capabilities for analysis — both enabled by the processing power of today’s data centers — are resulting in deeper insights and more intelligent decisions.

Closer to being actual soothsayers, our industry analysts dedicate a significant amount of time to studying trends. Their deep examination of the current state helps establish a baseline from which we can all be measured and their assessments of what’s developing helps guide us in building next-generation platforms.
Then there are the data center professionals — those in the trenches, who are monitoring, wrenching and reporting. Because they know how it is, they can tell you how it should be.
