Networks Will Increasingly Mimic the Human Brain

As networks continue to adapt and evolve heading into 2016, observers will be able to point to more and more similarities between today's network and the human brain.

Juniper believes that computing and storage capabilities will collapse into a single computation function to sit right next to the data it is working on. This change will be a primary driver for hyperconverged computing to become the standard way of doing things. This need for hybrid data will be critical due to data sovereignty requirements in areas where high density of countries reside (i.e. Europe).

Previously, the rate of innovation by humans has been determined almost entirely by the total amount of compute power, storage capacity, and network bandwidth resources available. However, networking is special because by connecting compute and storage elements, it allows developers to transcend the limitations that compute and storage always run into.
