A Magic Leap into the Future?

There’s a growing virtual reality market that could have a big impact on data centers over the next few years. And by growing, we mean explosive. Real-time VR and imaging requires lots of processor cycles, storage capacity and bandwidth.

Take for example the Magic Leap demo at WSJDLive conference this week, showing a platform for inserting virtual images into real life. It’s easy to imagine the implications of this type of virtual reality far beyond entertainment. Imagine an architect pulling up a 3D blueprint and then populating it with virtual pedestrians!

When someone asks you if Moore’s Law is relevant, there’s your answer.
