Artificial Intelligence (AI) Integration in Data Centers Transforming their Impacts on Organizations

Data centers are rapidly becoming the catalysts behind the growth of infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), as it essentially is an outsourced data center. The individual demand for IaaS and data centers has been met by the combination of both solutions. This combination essentially means providing data center services and solutions as an infrastructural solution. The major difference between data center construction and infrastructure as a service is that conventionally, data centers were constructed by the end-users constituting of all the equipments, components and requiring specialized infrastructure for its construction. This also requires staffing all of the required IT professionals that are skilled enough to handle all of the complications and issues, if they arise.

All of these services are installed and integrated on the premise of different organizations as they aim to improve their storage and infrastructural capacities. This integration of data centers on premise requires large financial capital to meet the various infrastructural, component and staffing needs. Therefore, various IT service providers have started constructing their own specialized data centers to provide them as an IaaS. This innovative solution presented by various IT providers is highly cost-effective for small and medium-sized enterprises as they can avail all of the benefits of data center without requiring large amounts of capital expenditure on infrastructure construction.

Due to the availability of data centers as service offerings, their costs of maintenance and upgradation is incurred by IT providers wherein they are responsible for optimizing of data center operations. One of the benefits with this type of service is that various IT providers have started integrating their data centers with artificial intelligence which has significantly impacted their capabilities in providing highly-effective specialized business solutions. This impact has been majorly positive as artificial intelligence helps in enhanced security measures in data centers. The integration of artificial intelligence gives the storage servers with the capabilities of fighting back any unwanted intrusions of confidential information by adopting various protective measures as the need for protection against cyber-attacks is at an all-time high.

One of the major requirements of any data center infrastructure is having optimal solutions for conservation of energy while not compensating on their effectiveness by reducing the energy flow through the storage servers which are not being utilized heavily and increasing the energy flow in servers where the need for operational is high requiring better cooling mechanism operations.

Another benefit of AI in data centers is the availability of predictive analytics based on the different business operational needs helping in the optimization of storage servers while even inducing analytics related to downtime of these servers. AI can help in better identification and isolation of problematic areas in the server and organizing the maintenance period according to the consumer usage. This also means that AI is responsible for consistent monitoring of equipments and various different components, taking over the job responsibility of IT professionals. Therefore, AI can help reduce the staffing requirements and training costs of various IT professionals.

Benefits of AI heavily outweigh the cons of not having AI in data centers, although the real-life optimization of AI in data centers at a commercially large-scale is still quite far and in the not too distant future this trend of optimizing the various operations of data centers will become a reality, wherein AI will dominate the data center industry.
