Accelerated Data Transport

My predictions for 2018 were about improving stability and value for data transport to the cloud, data storage, and application deployment. Looking to the New Year, I predict the following:

1)      The gigabit barrier:  Gigabit WAN connectivity is becoming common, even to the home, and demand for multigigabit is growing with the appetite for cloud services.  But transitioning systems and devices above 1 gigabit per second requires a lot more than just a faster network card.  Consumer and most commercial hardware have severe bottlenecks that make achieving reliable super gigabit data rates difficult.  No common operating systems ship with multi-gigabit ready configurations and TCP is simply incapable of scaling to such speeds on public networks.  In 2019, we are going to see demand for multi-gigabit performance run into these infrastructure barriers, placing pressure on system and service providers to address them.

2)      Non-public data distribution workflows will come home.  Egress fees make routing data through a public cloud provider expensive and the increased bandwidth of hosting data in the cloud can make those expenses difficult to predict and control.  Mass public distribution will still benefit from content delivery network functionality, whether that is in the cloud or traditional CDNs.  But, in 2019, intra-enterprise workflows that focus on distribution rather than processing will make their way back to on-premise data centers and egress friendly providers.

Data Expedition, Inc. is the creator of the industry's only intelligent data transport software.
