Mission Critical Magazine has begun a months-long project to document the state of the mission critical industry from the people on the front lines. To kick off this effort, we sat down with Lex Coors, chief data center technology and engineering officer, Interxion; Peter Poulin, CEO at GRC; and Bhavesh Patel, vice president, global marketing, ASCO Technologies, for our inaugural article.
Lex Coors: The number one is cloud that has been globally accepted as the way forward. To support this cloud expansion, it requires a massive infrastructure increase that we currently see being implemented. Even the hyperscale’s of this world themselves could not even foresee its success looking at the continuously updated increase in power requirements. Hybrid cloud, IOT, machine learning, and virtual reality will further increase the growth rate even more. The previous mentioned will launch the future — not yet existing — AI (artificial intelligence) that will push us off the current map of imagination. AI will involve emotion, intuiting, and feelings on top of the machine learning algorithms.
