The Unrequited Search For The Optimized Data Center

One of the most aggravating things about technology is that, too often, there’s no one right answer. We spend years swinging on a pendulum, trying to solve problems whose solutions all have drawbacks.

It’s frustrating – especially for left-brained engineers – because there are areas where there is a right, or at least a widely accepted, answer. Ethernet? Yeah, we’ve all agreed on that. TCP/IP? Yep, we’re good.
