It is a very exciting time for the industry of information and communication technology (ICT) as it continues the massive transformation to the digital service, or “on demand”, economy. Earlier I had the pleasure of sharing Intel’s perspective and vision of the Data Center market at IDF15 in Shenzhen and I can think of no place better than China to exemplify how the digital services economy is impacting people’s everyday lives. In 2015 ICT spending in China will exceed $465 Billion, comprising 43% of global ICT spending growth.
ICT is increasingly the means to fulfill business, public sector and consumer needs and the rate at which new services are being launched and existing services are growing is tremendous. The result is 3 significant areas of growth for data center infrastructure: continued build out of Cloud computing, HPC and Big Data.
