AI Increasing Demand on Energy Efficient Data Centers

AI Increasing Demand on Energy Efficient Data Centers

The rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is reshaping industries and at a cost for data centers: a substantial increase in energy consumption. AI relies on deep learning and neural networks, demanding massive computational resources. To meet these needs, data centers use power-hungry GPUs and specialized chips, leading to increased power consumption and need for capacity.  

As a result, data center operators face a number of immediate challenges:

  • Escalating Data Volumes: AI’s effectiveness is tied to data volume. With the explosion of digital content and IoT devices, data centers must handle and process ever-growing data loads, requiring more storage and computing power, consequently consuming more energy and physical space in the data center.
  • Non-stop demands of real-time AI: Real-time AI applications like autonomous vehicles require 24/7 processing, preventing energy-saving opportunities during low-demand periods.
  • Cooling Struggles: all energy consumed by AI ultimately turns into heat; as AI hardware multiplies, cooling systems need to keep up, further increasing energy consumption.
  • Scalability and Costs: To accommodate AI's growing demands, data centers need to expand physical infrastructure and redundancy, increasing operational costs.

Packet Power’s suite of secure wireless power and environmental monitoring solutions provide critical facilities managers with immediate, detailed visibility into power consumption, environmental conditions, and capacity utilization.
