The data center is the backbone of the digital world. Building and operating a data center comes with its own challenges, including sustainability, capacity planning and optimizing resources such as space, power, CapEx, OpEx, and manpower. Large data center operators, including the biggest cloud service providers (SPs), have invested significant time and effort to optimize and run their data centers efficiently at scale. Over 80% of the power consumed by the IT systems in data centers are used for movement of data, and not for processing data. If we can reduce the amount of energy used for data movement between servers and storage systems, it would make an even more efficient and greener datacenter.
To keep pace with the growing demand for data movement, many hyperscale cloud service providers as well as telecommunication service providers are deploying 100GE and 400GE networking and exploring the new 800GE networking options. Increasing power consumption for networking is a major concern for hyperscale cloud SPs.
