About this Episode

The hyper-scale market is often a leading indicator of broader enterprise data center trends. This is true of software to manage scalability, autonomous management, security, disaggregated storage, and AI/ML.

Jay Shenoy, vice president of technology for Hyve, joins hosts Matt Kimball & Steve McDowell (each a senior technology analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy) to talk about what he's seeing in this space.

This wide-ranging conversation touches on seemingly everything: an overview of the hyperscale market; the software-defined data center; autonomous infrastructure; disaggregated storage and the increasing adoption of NVMe-over-fabric; the rise of ARM and accelerators; and even the impact of AI/ML in both training and inferernence use cases.

It's another great conversation on the rapid evolution of the enterprise data center.
