AI: A Growth Driver for Data Centers

The growing interest in artificial intelligence (AI) could be a boon for the data center segment. A new report from Dell’Oro forecasts that AI infrastructure spending will propel data center capex to grow 15 percent to $500 billion by 2027. One of the benefits of AI in the data center is driving efficiencies by automating operational processes in traditional enterprise data centers like server upgrades, scheduling, monitoring, maintenance, patching, updating, reporting, and application delivery capacity planning. Gartner estimates that by 2025, half of cloud data centers will deploy advanced robots with AI and machine learning (ML) capabilities, resulting in 30% higher operating efficiency.


This roundtable discussion will address the following opportunities and benefits AI will have in the data center, as well as their effects on data center providers.

  • How cloud service providers and enterprises can optimize their infrastructure for AI
  • Near-term cloud and enterprise capex growth challenges
  • How AI and AI-powered data center operations use AI technologies and algorithms to automate and enhance management
  • How AI enables power outage predictions, lowers maintenance costs
