Guest of the Week (12/30)
Kirk Bresniker, Fellow and Chief Architect, Hewlett Packard Labs
Congratulations Kirk! You are theCUBE Guest of the Week.
Welcome to The Machine, a team at Hewlett Packard Labs that is building the future of computing by developing a new bridge for applications for photonics, memory, compute, and hardware and software. The main goal of The Machine: create the architecture of the future for computing.
The driving force behind The Machine is data. HPE reports that by 2020, there will be 100 billion connected devices, according to Kirk Bresniker, Hewlett Packard Labs’ fellow and chief architect. The company also stated that in 2013, the world generated 4.5 zettabytes of data. HPE Labs predicted that number will expand to 180 zettabytes by 2025. Based on these figures, The Machine is preparing for an increase of around 4,000 percent in data growth.
Contrary to those numbers, a 2015 Gartner report predicted only 21 billion IoT devices by 2020. And IHS Technology indicated that the IoT market will go from an installed base of 15.4 billion devices in 2015 to 30.7 billion devices in 2020 and 75.4 billion in 2025. Regardless of the industry debate as to what the number of connected devices will eventually exist, the reality is the infrastructure of today will not have the capacity to adapt to the accelerated pace and growth of data.
Bresniker spoke with Dave Vellante (@dvellante) and Paul Gillin (@pgillin), co-hosts of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s mobile live streaming studio, during the HPE Discover EU event about the evolution of the project and the dynamics involved in creating the architecture of the future.
Bresniker is theCUBE’s Guest of the Week.
