The Next Frontier: AI-Driven Data Center Technologies
In today’s digital age, data center services have become the backbone of countless businesses, powering everything from online shopping and social media to financial transactions and healthcare services.
However, with the exponential growth of data and the increasing demand for real-time processing, traditional data center models struggle to keep up. AI offers turnkey solutions that enable organizations to optimize data center services by improving energy efficiency, reducing costs, and enhancing sustainability. In this blog, we’ll explore the ways in which AI is transforming the data center landscape and how AI-integrated immersion cooling can help businesses unlock their full potential.
What Does AI Mean for Data Centers?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the broad science of replicating human skills, and Machine Learning (ML) is a subset of AI that teaches machines how to learn. As more organizations use smart computers, expand their services, and migrate their infrastructures to the edge or cloud, the data being stored and generated to power these computers is growing exponentially.
Organizations can leverage AI-based solutions to help manage their daily operations, optimize efficiency and performance, enhance user experiences, and continuously gain insights that drive improvements across all business sectors.
Data Center Automation Market Growth
According to industry reports, the global data center automation market was valued at 6.8 billion USD in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.5% from 2022 to 2030.
Growth drivers for AI-based data center services include:
- The rapid deployment of 5G network technologies
- The adoption of high-performance computing
- The rise of hybrid cloud architectures
How AI Can Optimize Data Center Services
AI/ML technologies create immense value, enabling data center managers to design intuitive, self-sustaining infrastructures and realize greater efficiency, sustainability, and scalability potential. Here are some key reasons why data center companies adopt AI.
Resource Management & Planning
Organizations deal with limited resources to manage fluctuating compute densities, data storage, and networking capacities as business needs change. AI can help provision your data center’s capacity to efficiently plan and execute the resources you need, including space, power, and cooling, to maximize revenue and achieve eco-friendly operations. AI-integrated software provides valuable data that helps
- Optimize the usable space in your facility while maintaining environmental conditions like humidity and temperature.
- Plan and predict future power consumption based on current and historical data
Asset Performance Management (APM)
APM includes analytics, data collection, integration, and visualization to improve the reliability and availability of physical IT assets. Using AI/ML software for asset management can
- Extend the lifespan of IT components by proactively detecting and fixing operating parameters that can potentially reduce their usability.
- Predict and automatically alert you when an asset needs repair, maintenance, or replacement based on operating conditions.
- Learn current operating conditions, like energy usage, for individual or group assets and identify abnormalities by monitoring real-time data.
Sustainability & Energy Efficiency
With the growing concern about global warming and climate change, businesses work to reduce the impact of their data center services and achieve carbon-neutral operations without compromising performance. According to IBM Global AI Adoption Index, 66% of companies surveyed are either currently executing or planning to execute AI to address sustainability goals.
Innovative cooling solutions, like immersion data centers, are being developed to increase cooling efficiency, enhance hardware performance, and reduce energy consumption. In addition to leveraging liquid immersion cooling technology, data centers are increasingly deploying purpose-built immersion cooling systems with AI-based data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software to optimize efficiency and achieve carbon neutrality quicker and easier.
AI and immersion cooling can improve data center energy efficiency by
- Proactively managing power usage effectiveness (PUE) and assessing the impact of manual changes to your assets’ operating parameters
- Identify the best parameters for each asset to minimize energy usage while achieving the performance requirements for each asset (maintaining optimal temperature and humidity levels)
- Automatically alert or correct systems that are over-consuming power to maximize the use of CPUs and save energy
- Enabling fully autonomous, lights-out operations to streamline manual tasks
How to Implement AI in Your Data Center
AI-powered software can help data centers manage their infrastructure and cooling systems to maximize productivity and deliver significant energy and cost savings. Most AI-based solutions have extremely fast computing capabilities and provide valuable insight that drives ongoing improvements across all platforms.
If your company has a scalable infrastructure and high-end processors, AI-based solutions can enable them to run more effectively. Businesses planning to implement AI should consider creating a stable and adaptable infrastructure compatible with AI-based solutions or apps.
