Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) is creating new opportunities for businesses and consumers. Indeed, PwC, a major consultancy, expects AI to contribute over $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2030 . At the same time, within the data center, a move to micro-services-based software architectures, distributed storage, and Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) workloads are pushing east-west traffic to previously unseen heights.
Huawei’s Global Industry Vision (GIV) 2025  predicts that the AI adoption rate will reach 86% by 2025. This will also have a big impact on the data center network, when AI/ML applications will drive the data center towards the AI era from the cloud era. Huawei is pleased to commission AvidThink, formerly SDxCentral research, to author a research brief covering the impact on data center networking by new workloads, including Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML).
