0:07 hi my name is mike buchan i lead the

0:09 data center business at juniper networks

0:11 and this is what i see happening in 2022

0:14 first i think we'll see a shift from

0:16 agility to reliability

0:18 when we were pursuing faster and faster

0:21 cars it wasn't enough to merely strap a

0:23 rocket engine to the back of a car it

0:25 wasn't until we had seat belts and

0:27 anti-lock brakes that we could really

0:29 unlock functional speed it'll be the

0:31 same way in the data center we can't go

0:34 fast until we know that speed is not

0:36 lethal and that means reliability will

0:39 take the number one thing that we look

0:40 at in infrastructure

0:42 this has a natural follow-on effect

0:44 we'll see the

0:46 retirement of things like nerd and hubs

0:48 we have to get into more standard cookie

0:50 cutter deployments so that things can be

0:52 done repeatably the same way every time

0:54 without fail

0:55 and the second major prediction i think

0:57 we'll see diversity really start to

0:59 enter the tech space the pandemic taught

1:01 us that we can work from anywhere and

1:04 that gives us access to talent pools

1:06 that have different demographics it's

1:08 not about you know recruiting from the

1:10 same basic places like the bay area or

1:12 down in austin as we look at a global

1:14 talent pool that should give us access

1:16 to talent of different ages of different

1:18 genders of different races in a much

1:20 more rich environment 2022 should be the

1:23 beginning of real diversity in roads in

1:25 our space

1:26 thank you and that's what i see in 2022
