Topic Summary: Modern cloud-native applications are characterized by several key attributes: firstly, they are built as microservices that run on a distributed set of servers and secondly, they need to manage large datasets that extend beyond the capacity and performance of a single server.  These attributes drive the need for high-performance, scale-out, hyperdisaggregated data centers, where servers interact as a unified pool of disaggregated compute and storage servers to serve the needs of these applications.
