Switch has developed Switch Sentry security robots to deploy at future edge data centers and enterprise sites. Robots could be an important tool to solve challenges in data center management, as well as contactless commerce during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The robot-driven data center is closer to reality with the introduction of a robotic system to swap servers from a tank of cooling liquid. Is this another step towards more “lights out” data centers? Rich Miller, explores the past, present and future of robots in the data center.
TMGcore has launched a modular data center platform that uses robots to swap high-density servers immersed in coolant fluid. The OTTO platform is the most ambitious bid yet for a “lights out ” autonomous data center.
