Bangalore: Years before, the world was meant to be a matter of physical goods. Around 60 odd years before, large containers where moved across nations using ships, trains and other hard means of transport. Today the concept seems rather so simple, but years ago the arrangement took years of planning, construction and pin point precision in implementation.

Rather to an extent, these containers truly revolutionized today’s shipment industry. All of a sudden the shipmen, small crates and the off-loaders lost their significance.  Goods are now allowed to stay within their containers for days. And when it comes to the transportation, it’s just as easy as a snap. Today the world is experiencing a digitalized revolution.

And when it comes to technology, things have changed a lot. Digitalized containers or simply putting, data centers have risen into existence. Efficiency and faster access have now become the hardcore mottos of technology. At present, once called power-house data center server makers like Dell, HP and IBM have lost their significance. Whereas smaller businesses, who once purchased these digital goods from the big three, have their own digital data centers at process, which is ‘a revolution in motion.’   

Experts and researchers state that it was a lack of thought from the heavy hitters that made their legend, a story of the past. Today, companies like Facebook, Google and Amazon have realized that they can’t survive on small scale servers and have gone to build their own “data factories.” The reason is pretty simple- faster access, better efficiency and more flexibility. These self-made data centers can process a lot more data than the standard packaged ones with which server vendors have long dominated the market.

With that in mind here are the three key trends that caused the server industry to disrupt.
