Summary: data volume growth is driving data center transformation

As you know, technology is constantly driving changes in data centers. What is driving this change? In

2017, nearly 2. 500 million users logged on to the Internet for the first time, and that number grew by 7

percent in 2018. Eleven new users are checking social media every second, spending an average of

about six hours a day online.


And the reason why the data center keeps changing is very simple. Now, almost all companies have their own official websites, and e-commerce helped enterprises gain nearly 1. Five trillion dollars. However, if your site takes longer than three seconds to load, you could lose nearly a quarter of your visitors. A delay of just one second can cost you 11% of your page views and 7% of your business!

As a result, server computing speed has increased over the past few years and will continue to increase in the future. Server computing speed is also driving sales and development of transceivers. As you can see in figure 1, 1G connections quickly become a thing of the past, and 10G connections quickly disappear. The 25gb transceiver is currently in the market, but will be replaced by 50gb transceivers in the next few years. In addition, many very large and cloud data centers are expected to adopt 100 gb server port speeds in the next few years. These higher server speeds can be achieved with 40G, 100G, 200G, and 400G channel rates using either 2-core or 8-core parallel optical transceivers.
