The huge data centres of the future must be unmanned

Scientists in Italy have published a paper postulating that the only way data centres can increase in size as they will need to in the future is if they are unmanned – and driven by analytical, automated systems. The paper Towards Operator-less Data Centers Through Data-Driven, Predictive, Proactive Autonomics outlines the work of two researchers at the Department of Computer Science in the University of Pisa, who explain why the legendarily low-staffed data centre needs to completely divest itself of human dependence: ‘For the most part, current automated data center management tools are limited to low-level infrastructure provisioning, resource allocation, scheduling or monitoring tasks with no predictive capabilities. This leaves the brunt of the problem in detecting and resolving undesired behaviors to armies of operators who continuously monitor streams of…
