The aim of AutoDC is to provide an innovative design framework for autonomous data centres to enable ongoing operation and self-healing independent of contextual interference, e.g. intermittent power failure or overheating, without the need for any human intervention.
With growth in the data centre market expected to continue, the cost of operating and maintaining the data centre footprint will increase. Due to lower maintenance and operation costs, autonomous data centres can become key enablers of markets in developing countries.
