The Data Center in 2017 and Beyond

According to Avinash Lakshman, CEO of storage developer Hedvig and creator of the Apache Cassandra platform, enterprise executives should plan their data center upgrades around five key elements. First, multi-cloud architectures are emerging as the new normal, meaning the local data center will no longer act as the primary repository for data and applications. As well, infrastructure will become streamlined through technologies like in-memory computing, while content delivery and other functions will transition to self-service modes of operation. Expect a higher level of automation and machine learning as well, which in turn will produce greater value for metadata, perhaps to the point where it can be monetized.
