"In the 3rd Platform era, all businesses are becoming increasingly digital. These digital business models are being enabled by mobile, cloud, social, and big data, and they are more often than not being deployed on hyperscale infrastructures running in greenfield hyperscale datacenters. These datacenters are rapidly becoming the foundation for new business models that seek to transform a wide range of industries by directly and pervasively connecting customers to new business services." — Matt Eastwood, senior vice president, Enterprise Infrastructure and Datacenter research
