Artificial intelligence is a double-edged sword for data centres. The technology can be used to improve operations. Predictive analytics enables the automation of operations and improved resource management. Real-time anomaly detection and proactive threat identification are used to enhance proactive threat identification.
Generative AI, however, uses a huge amount of computation power, which in turn requires a lot of energy for cooling the heat generated by power-hungry servers. Thus, data centres are in a dilemma. They are needed in an increasingly digitalised world but they also need to be environmentally sustainable.
In this podcast, Matthew Oostveen, Chief Technology Officer, Pure Storage, shares his views on how data centres are going green and how flash storage and related products can reduce the cost of data centre operations.
