(OPEN):
THE EXPLOSIVE GROWTH OF SOCIAL-, MOBILE-, CLOUD-, AND BIG-DATA COULD SOON BE RESTRICTED BY THE VERY THING THAT ENABLES IT--INFRASTRUCTURE.  AND, IF NOTHING'S DONE TO ADDRESS THIS FUNDAMENTAL I-T-ISSUE, INTERNET-INFRASTRUCTURE MAY FALL SHORT.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO HEWLETT-PACKARD--WHICH HAS JUST UNVEILED A LINE OF SERVERS TO HELP THE INTERNET KEEP UP WITH FUTURE DEMAND.  DAVE DONATELLI IS THE EXECUTIVE VICE-PRESIDENT OF H-P'S "ENTERPRISE GROUP"...

(DONATELLI):
"
MOST OF US DON'T GIVE MUCH THOUGHT TO THE INFRASTRUCTURE THAT ENABLES OUR INTERNET-USE.  IN FACT, NEARLY 10-BILLION DEVICES ARE CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET TODAY.  BY 2016, THE NUMBER OF SERVERS [THAT WILL BE] NEEDED TO SUPPORT THE WORLD'S GROWING INTERNET-USE IS EXPECTED TO REACH EIGHT-[MILLION] TO 10-MILLION:  IF THE DATA-CENTERS THAT HOUSE THEM WERE STRUNG END-TO-END, THEY WOULD SPAN THE LENGTH OF 'MANHATTAN ISLAND'--AND [WOULD] NEED 10 NEW POWER-PLANTS, TO SUPPORT THEM.  WE'VE REACHED A POINT-IN-TIME WHERE THE SPACE, POWER, AND COST TO SUPPORT OUR DATA-USE CAN NO LONGER BE SUSTAINED BY TRADITIONAL TECHNOLOGY.  NOW, HEWLETT-PACKARD IS REDEFINING TECHNOLOGY-INFRASTRUCTURE AS WE KNOW IT:  H-P'S 'MOONSHOT'-SERVERS TAKE UP 80-PERCENT LESS SPACE, USE 89-PERCENT LESS ENERGY, REDUCE COST BY 77-PERCENT, AND REDUCE COMPLEXITY BY 97-PERCENT--PROVIDING THE FOUNDATION FOR THE NEXT 20-BILLION DEVICES.  UNTIL NOW, THE WORLD HAS ASSUMED THAT THE INTERNET WILL ALWAYS BE ABLE TO KEEP UP WITH RISING DEMAND.  AND, WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF H-P'S 'MOONSHOT', WE'RE KEEPING IT THAT WAY."
