High-Speed Fiber Networks are a Key Ingredient in Data Center Growth

May 27, 2022
The data center industry is growing at an incredible pace, driven by the explosive adoption of smart technology, connected IoT devices, online shopping, and the shift to remote work. Learn why high-speed fiber networks will be a key part of a modern data center’s infrastructure in this special report series. 

The data center industry is growing at an incredible pace, driven by the explosive adoption of smart technology, connected IoT devices, online shopping, and the shift to remote work. The massive amount of data generated by these devices is pushing data centers to evolve into a decentralized network of resources tied together by a robust cloud infrastructure. High-speed fiber networks will be a key component of any modern data center’s infrastructure.

Future-Proofing the Distributed Data Center with High-Speed Fiber Networks, courtesy of Belden, explores the role that high-speed fiber networks will play as IT leaders work to future-proof their data center infrastructures. Check out our recent article series focused on the special report:

How High-Speed Fiber Networks Can Future-Proof Data Centers: In this article, we look at how the rapid growth in the volume of data generated by digital transformations and cloud services has created complexity. The report notes that “the more data that is generated, the more resources are needed to manage it.”

Evolving IT Strategies Require Flexible Architectures: Market dynamics are driving IT leaders to evolve their data processing strategies to create flexible architectures. In this article, we dive deeper into how these dynamics will drive industry change.

Considerations for Future-Proofing Infrastructure: Given that the rapid pace of change shows no sign of stopping, IT leaders need to think about how they can future-proof their infrastructure. In this article, we look at why resiliency, security, and performance are three of the top factors they should consider.

Virtualization Helps IT Leaders Future-Proof Their Infrastructure: In the final article in the series, we explore cost and network topology – and how virtualization can help IT leaders when future-proofing their infrastructure.
