What is Artificial Intelligence?
Artificial intelligence was a phrase that came into being in the 1950s when early research into the science of computation explored simple methods of automation and problem-solving. Through this research, computer scientists began to learn how to train computers to mimic some forms of human reasoning which allowed our computers and machines to become the “smart” companions we know and understand today.
Today, a continuation of AI research and improvement on foundational technologies are apparent in the automation and reasoning skills that can be found built-in to our phones, computers, and machines. AI, in some form, is becoming a background fact of our world.
How is Artificial Intelligence Reshaping Data Centers?
Artificial intelligence has already brought more changes to our world that could be discussed in a single article. However, there are three main ways that artificial intelligence is reshaping and changing the data centers that are responsible for powering much of the world’s business and commerce.
The first way that artificial intelligence is reshaping data centers can found in the rise of artificial intelligence based applications driving demand for data center space. With clients moving their businesses forward with artificial intelligence based applications, enterprises require more space than ever before. Many companies find themselves needing increased service support to keep their applications running, and update and backup solutions for more robust applications also require space. Data centers are having to redefine their business models and plans to accommodate the needs of their clients.
The second way that artificial intelligence is reshaping data centers, and possibly one of the most important, is that the space changes needed for large artificial intelligence applications will also completely change how high-density racks are powered and cooled. This pushes data centers to re-evaluate their design and setup procedures so that they can offer the space and machines that their clients will need for their evolving businesses.
The third and final way that artificial intelligence is reshaping our data centers is in the ability of artificial intelligence to perform some of the operating tasks of today’s modern data centers. AI being able to do more means that, in this world of ever-changing technology, it is believed that artificial intelligence will not only reshape today’s data centers but will also operate them.
As the research and study behind this technology improve, data centers are going to be at the forefront of making changes to allow artificial intelligence space and power it will need to reshape the world of tomorrow.
