The author will review the growing trend of warehouse-scale mega-datacenter computing, the Internet transformation driven by mega-datacenter applications, and the opportunities and challenges for fiber optic communication technologies to support the growth of mega-datacenter computing in the next three to four years.
In this talk, we will start from the basic architectural structure of mega data centers, the bandwidth and energy efficiency challenge in scaling datacenter networks.? Then we discuss the importance of photonic interconnects in scaling datacenter networks.? We will also discuss the myths of photonic switching in data networking applications and compare photonic switching with electronic switching.
