ANALYST THURSDAY – DATA CENTER CHALLENGES, SEASON 2: HIGHER BANDWIDTH AND LOWER LATENCY WHILE REDUCING ENERGY CONSUMPTION.Sign in for replay
As Photonics, Compute Express Link (CXL), and Power Supply Units (PSUs) are among the key factors in achieving higher efficiency and power density to meet more power-hungry data centers, Yole analysts will discuss the necessity to embrace these new technologies and their applications, especially in meeting the new AI data center requirements.
The increasing demands placed on data center applications, such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and real-time analytics, have driven the need for faster data processing, greater memory capacity, and higher bandwidth. Simultaneously, the imperative to rapidly store and access vast amounts of data has fueled the demand for storage drives with higher capacity, enhanced performance, and reduced costs. Meeting these demands will require more power, particularly for AI servers. AI currently places data center technologies under extreme stress, consuming nearly ten times (x10) more power than standard servers. Additionally, the growing popularity of Large Language Models (LLM) and generative AI models, which demand greater processing, storage, and networking capabilities, while striving for lower power consumption and minimal latency, further intensifies these requirements and pushes technologies to their limits.
Following the first Analyst Thursday Webinar on Data Centre that focused on “More Moore” technologies (memory and processing), this new webinar from Yole analysts will delve into the current state of the data center industry and the prevailing technological trends. It will shed light on several key aspects:
- The definition of diverse data center types: hyperscale, enterprise, HPC.
- Market trends related to each type are given.
- Supply chain: players with different experience and know-how
- Compute Express Link (CXL) challenges: facing ever-growing volumes of data while optimizing resource utilization and accelerating the execution of data center workloads.
- Photonics applications: platforms in datacom optical transceivers and their emerging roles, including optical interconnects.
- Technology trends in Power Supply Units (PSUs): increasing power and adoption of Wide Bandgap (WBG) devices based on Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium Nitride (GaN).
- Comprehensive discussions spanning both market dynamics and technical advancements.
This webinar promises valuable insights into the evolving landscape of data centers and the technologies shaping their future.
