Are we on the verge of a new frontier in data center automation? Here’s a deep dive into the history of robotics in the data center, some implementations, and how they may help shape the data centers of the future.,
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.
Autonomous cars could generate up to 5 TB of data an hour. Edge Computing World provided a closer look at how self-driving cars and the edge network will work together, and the scenarios that will will require data and storage.
