I was staring into the official Hot Aisle Insight crystal ball after asking to see what was ahead for 2016 when an image of baseball legend Yogi Berra gradually appeared. Slightly baffled and hoping for a different result, I thought the voice recognition software needed an upgrade and bravely did a free Windows 10 upgrade to the mystical orb hoping for a cleared view of the future. When the globe finally finished rebooting (for the 5th time), it still showed Yogi, this time wearing an Apple Watch. This made me wonder if I had a bad upgrade experience, since the upgrade to Windows 10 was free, or perhaps it was trying to convey a prediction that Apple was going to acquire Microsoft this year. I pondered these and various other possibilities for a while when I suddenly remembered one of Berra’s famous quotes, “When you get to a fork in the road, take it.” Well it seems that the data center industry is doing just that, and on many levels.
