Traditional server systems where compute, storage and network reside in a single server box or blade have been around for quite some time. With the emergence of hyper-scale data centers with multi-cloud requirements and management of these servers have become more complex to support different types of cloud workloads. This has led to the creaton of data center resource pooling to support various types of cloud workloads as service providers are adopting Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) and Rack Scale Design (RSD). Fulcan Fong will present the challenges of modernizing data centers, explain what SDI and RSD are, and also talk about how service providers will benefit by adopting them.
Fulcan Fong is the Sr. Cloud Solutions Manager at Intel’s Data Center Sales Group, he leads a team of Hyperscale Solution Architects helping service providers with their adoption of Intel® Rack Scale Architecture. Over the past twelve years at Intel, Fulcan has worked in other customer facing, pre-sales and marketing positions. Prior to Intel, Fulcan worked at AT&T/NCR, IBM Global Services and a networking startup in the Silicon Valley. Fulcan holds a Bachelor degree in Engineering Technology from Texas Tech and a MS/MBA in Engineering Management from Cal Poly–San Luis Obispo.
