Carrier evolution goes far beyond simple access to virtualized applications. The latest hyperscale architectures that empower the world’s largest data centers have set the bar in every aspect of operational efficiency and performance. These powerful architectures now represent the minimum viable target for data center economics; those that cannot attain this level of efficiency simply cannot be competitive in the market for the next generation of Internet services.
