Data Centers are Getting Denser and Smarter: Here’s How Facility Managers Can Keep Up

May 28, 2024

The pressure is on for data centers to evolve to meet the demands of emerging technologies. Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), the Internet of Things (IoT), and other compute-heavy technologies are at the forefront of a push to increase density and intelligence inside data centers. A researcher at Omdia describes the transition as turning data centers “from a compute and storage factory into an AI factory.” This will require data center operators to reimagine existing facilities and design new ones for higher density, greater efficiency, elevated reliability and resiliency, and enhanced sustainability.
