Data Centre industry is very competitive nowadays with a growing number of data centre operators in the region that are able to provide a more comprehensive suite of services to support enterprise requirement. In order to compete and stand out from other data centres, besides focusing on its product and services offerings, the data centre has to adopt new technologies to optimize the resources they have to improve data centre efficiency, productivity, and security.
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
AI is the technology enabling machines to learn from experience and perform human-like tasks. AI systems perform intelligent searches, interpreting both text and images to discover patterns in complex data, and then act on those learnings based on mountains of data created by humans. Nowadays, AI is influencing the development of modern data centres. With the surge in the amount of data every day, traditional data centres will eventually get slow and result in an inefficient output.
Data centre operators can drive efficiencies up and cost down by using AI in many ways. There is also a trend that future data centre will apply face recognition AI technology for data center security. As an example, Google uses the Google DeepMind system to significantly improve the power efficiency of its data centre. The system makes all the cooling-plant tweaks on its own continuously. It can help companies achieve saving up to 30% of the plant’s energy annually. This showed that companies can significantly reduce their energy-related costs using AI.
