Re: DCI app
"Popular and contested" is pretty much the description of any really revolutionary technology at the beginning, and data center interconnection looks like it's very much at the dawn of things: logically, interconnection increases value, and there's no real barrier other than many thousands of hours of engineering time to reaching the point where all data centers within an organization can be so interconnected that the user experiences them as essentially one big fast DC.

The next integration is one in which the users need not know which data is proprietary to their corporation and which are generally available to everyone from reliable sites, so that the world becomes one big data center, with more-or-less user by user restrictions on access.

We could call that "the cloud."

Slightly more seriously, there are going to be many, many innovations emerging in the next 30 months or so, and a great deal of playing with them and fitting them, before organizations begin to settle on what they actually want to do (and avoid) with DCI.  TIP is more promising than many because it's flexible and has a pathway to an even more interconnected future -- but the wheel is still in spin.

DCI app
Data center interconnection does seem popular - and contested, with MSFT mixing things up with Inphi, Google kvetching about lack of innovation and Windstream making its own play - just to site some recent coverage around here.
