Datacenters’ existence can be dated back to 1940, and it has evolved continuously over decades to handle rising volumes of data.

According to Cisco, data Internet Protocol (IP) traffic is estimated to grow threefold from 6.8 Zettabytes in 2016 to 20.6 Zettabytes by 2020. It also adds that workloads on datacenter and compute instances will grow 2.3 folds by 2020, and organizations will switch to public cloud infrastructures to manage their IT operations and analytic needs. This can be clearly related to an increasing number of consumers demanding high-definition (HD) video and audio streaming, large-sized file sharing, faster computing requirements in applications such as financial transactions and stock trading, real-time and faster data analytics for self-driving cars, Industry 4.0, crime mitigation, and so on. The use cases can extend largely.
