The only constant in our world today is change. BCS Data Center Operations explores how people, processes, and technology are redefining mission critical infrastructure operations.
Insights: Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
Machine learning and artificial intelligence have arrived in the data center, changing the face of the hyperscale server farm as racks begin to fill with ASICs, GPUs, FPGAs and supercomputers. The race to leverage machine learning is led by the industry’s marquee names, including Google, Facebook and IBM. As usual, the battlefield runs through the data center, with implications for the major cloud platforms and chipmakers like Intel and NVIDIA.
In a move to enable wider use of liquid cooling, NVIDIA is introducing its first data center GPU with direct chip liquid cooling. One of the early adopters is Equinix, which is test-driving the servers and hopes to implement liquid cooling in a sustainable AI platform.
Can the servers inside a data center make the walls and floors greener? Researchers at Meta and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are using artificial intelligence to reduce the environmental impact of concrete.
No matter the reason for migration, it’s a complicated endeavor, and must be executed without error. Flexential outlines seven migration best practices that will minimize downtime and ensure the migration process runs smoothly.
Kao Data was determined to design their new data centers to be as energy efficient as possible. Future Facilities explores how computational fluid dynamic (CFD) simulations can be used to validate the design of data center cooling systems.
The edge is no longer a specific size or as precise of a place as it once was, but just because it has grown more complex doesn’t mean that we can’t distinguish what or where it is. Sean Farney, Director of Data Center Marketing at Kohler Power Systems explores the ever evolving definition of the edge.
When looking to the future of the data center industry, the ability to remain agile, accommodate high density and be able to satisfy stringent carbon efficiency goals will be crucial. Future Facilities explores how an innovative French colocation data center provider uses digital twin technology to accomplish this.
NVIDIA today unveiled powerful new GPU hardware to serve as the key building blocks for its vision to transform data centers into “AI factories” unleashing new frontiers in technical computing. That includes the new Hopper architecture and H100 GPUs.
Sherman Ikemoto, Managing Director at Future Facilities explains how simulation can help data center operators manage the accelerating pace of business, rising densities, and energy consumption.
To support operations, today’s data centers need a totally different type of infrastructure from what was required just a few years ago. Join Rich Miller and TMGcore’s JD Enright for a webinar on Feb. 23 to learn about the current state of data center cooling.
