Over the past few years, Internet-scale apps have driven visible benefits to mobile users and tablet-based information services. Simultaneously, less visible benefits have been the revolution in back-end infrastructure inside the data centers which power these new apps. That quiet revolution of the past decade involved scale-out technologies such as parallel processing, high-speed networking and distributed storage, which broke the bounds of traditional 3-tier architectures, POSIX storage systems, ACID databases and OSI network stacks. In this talk, NetApp's Val Bercovici will describe the new infrastructure revolution about to shape this decade - dramatic advances in processing, memory, networking and storage technologies. Come hear Val's vision of the future of Cloud-Scale Infrastructure and determine for yourself what is Science and what is Science Fiction!
