CPI Joins Data Center Frontier Executive Roundtable to Discuss Emerging Trends

June 28, 2019

Chatsworth Products’ (CPI) newest Product Manager, David Richards, recently joined thought leaders from Intel, Iron Mountain, RagingWire and more to discuss four key topics influencing the state of today’s data center industry.

In a wide-ranging discussion that covers everything from trends in hyperscale data center leasing, edge computing and enterprise transitions to third-party facilities, Richards, a 30-year veteran of the telecom and IT industries and now CPI’s Product Manager for Open Systems, offered his take on increases in compute capacity, hardware utilization, and the role hyperscalers will play in supporting increased data flow and storage needs. His remarks in full are included below.

“In general, the size of builds is increasing. It is important to remember that each generation of compute provides a significant increase in compute capacity and better overall hardware utilization. So, the amount of hardware per compute capacity is shifting. Hyperscale will continue to grow and to lease colo space, but the compute capacity in each rack is also increasing.

Additionally, the emergence of 5G and increased demands for mobile computing have created a need to observe and create the next natural evolution of data center design, layout and operations. Once this evolution pans out, I believe hyperscale will be in position to confidently continue to multiply to support the increased wave of data flow and storage needs that comes along with it.”
