Applications such as high-frequency trading, high-performance computing, AI, and gaming are compute intensive and latency sensitive. In order to accommodate these great workloads, hyperscale operators must move computational load towards the edge of the network. Decentralizing the cloud creates many challenges in these constrained environments.
In this whitepaper, Cisco and Panduit explore architectures that address these issues and enable operators to find the right solutions that not only meet current needs but are scalable to keep up with future demands.
Other key topics covered in this whitepaper include:
- Strategies for maximizing computational power
- High-density rack servers and higher speed top-of-rack switches
- Pluggable versus cables
