AI is having a growing influence on data centers

June 6, 2024
One of the panels at the upcoming Data Center Summit will address artificial intelligence’s influence on data centers.

The growing interest in artificial intelligence (AI) will be a boon for the data center segment. Dell’Oro forecasts AI infrastructure spending will propel data center capex to grow 15 percent to $500 billion by 2027. 

One of the benefits of AI in the data center is driving efficiencies by automating operational processes in traditional enterprise data centers, such as server upgrades, scheduling, monitoring, maintenance, patching, updating, reporting, and application delivery capacity planning.

Gartner estimates that by 2025, half of cloud data centers will deploy advanced robots with AI and machine learning (ML) capabilities, resulting in 30% higher operating efficiency.

At next week’s Data Center Summit, a panel will address AI's following opportunities and benefits in the data center and their effects on providers by addressing the following issues:

•    How cloud service providers and enterprises can optimize their infrastructure for AI 
•    Cloud service provider and enterprise spending trends on AI infrastructure 
•    The role of Tier 2/3 Cloud Service Providers
•    Near-term cloud and enterprise capex growth challenges
•    How AI and AI-powered data center operations use AI technologies and algorithms to automate and enhance management
•    How AI enables power outage predictions, lowers maintenance costs

Led by Sean Buckley, Editor in Chief of Lightwave+BTR, the panel will include a group of esteemed experts that represent different parts of the data center industry ecosystem:

·       Robb Jones, Chatsworth Products

·       Mark Seymour, Cadence Design Systems

·       Patton Lochridge, Bandwidth IG

Lightwave, in collaboration with fellow Endeavor Business Media brands Cabling Installation & Maintenance, Data Center Frontier, and Security Info Watch, is hosting a series of panel discussions, hour-long standalone sessions, and half-hour presentations focused on the most relevant aspects of data center administration.
