8 data center predictions for 2020

“The data center is the heart of your business. Although your company lives and dies by its employees and products and/or services, IT can’t deliver any level of functionality, reliability, and agility without your data center.” – says Jack Wallen from TechRepublic.

In his prediction he includes:

  • Rise in edge computing
  • Tool that simplifies Kubernetes deployments
  • Nearly 90% of data center traffic will focus on cloud
  • A massive breach centered around a container deployment
  • More dependency on open source
  • 5G infrastructure
  • Skynet looms
  • New skills required
