“We power the cloud and Data Center is a big portion of our business, it’s really an important part for us, when you think about IOT [Internet of Things] and the growth on the edge of the network and the data analytics and the ability to capture data into the cloud. It’s a very important part of the business, both ends of the clouds, if you will, for us. We are doing a tremendous amount of work to grow in IOT and equally we are moving beyond compute into network and storage and the data center,” James said.

Moore, co-founder of Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) had predicted in 1965 that the number of transistors in a integrated circuit will double every two years, this observation became what we know today as the Moore’s law.
