Supermicro highlights AI as next industrial revolution; foundation of new era lies with digital data creation, storage, and processing




In 2024, the semiconductor sector will face several major changes. At the forefront of these changes are innovations in high-performance computing (HPC) and AI server supply chains. DIGITIMES will spotlight these transformations at the “2024 Next-Gen Intelligence Symposium” on November 3, 2023. The event will feature insights from DIGITIMES’ senior analysts and industry experts from Supermicro, with the aim to offer a deep understanding of Asia’s supply chain dynamics and the evolving tech landscape.

Alok Kumar Srivastav, a senior solutions manager at Supermicro, will speak at the event. He’s mainly responsible for businesses related to AI, machine learning, and HPC. He will discuss how AI is at the tipping point of transforming industries in his keynote titled “Ushering in a New Era of AI with Modern Building Blocks.”

In a recent interview with DIGITIMES Asia, Srivastav discussed the fundamental modern building blocks that are enabling AI, what industries are already adopting AI, balancing between key partners like Nvidia, Intel, and AMD, and how AI will affect the server/infrastructure industry and beyond in the future.

The digital era is the cornerstone of the AI

Srivastav pointed out during the interview that the key technologies pushing AI into a new era are digitalization, storage, and accelerated computing, and Supermicro’s solutions cover all of its customers.

All of these are related to the one true foundation of AI: digital data. The one requirement for AI to work is a well-trained model, and a well-trained model needs a lot of digital data.

The digitalization helps fulfill the first step of this process. The recent digital explosion meant that we were creating a lot more data. In fact, according to Srivastav, over 90% of existing data in the world was generated in the last 2-3 years.

Once the digital data is created, Storage technology is mature enough to handle this massive amount of new data accordingly at different stages of its life cycle.

The final and most crucial is accelerated computing capability. Advancements in modern computing capabilities have enabled corporations to process and convert complex digital data into meaningful insights.

A cross-industry phenomenon

As with the industries that are looking to or have already adopted AI, Srivastav listed a long list of industries that are already under Supermicro’s umbrella. These industries include automotive (esp. EVs), cloud computing (that caters to specific types of workloads), energy (oil/gas), financial, healthcare, higher education, media and entertainment, the public sector, HPCs, telecommunications, and more.

While Srivastav declined to name a specific company, he ensured that these are all major corporations that are leaders in their respective industries. When it comes to volume, he mentioned that because of the demand for new infrastructure due to the emergence of cloud computing, almost all these major corporations are procuring “thousands of computing units from Supermicro.”

Achieving a balance between key partners

One of the more interesting parts of Supermicro’s business is that it’s agnostic and works very closely with key partners like Intel, Nvidia, and AMD, companies that are actively competing against each other in the same sector. When asked about this, Srivastav admitted that keeping pace with the innovation and progress of all three companies is not an easy task.

“Supermicro’s DNA is first-to-market, and we want to be first for all of our state-of-the-art products and all of our customers,” he stated.

‘The Fourth Industrial Revolution’

Regarding the future direction of the industry, Srivastav pointed out that advancements in AI technology have resulted in lower error rates and have allowed more and more corporations to become more accepting of this technology.

All of this will lead to something they referred to as “the fourth industrial revolution.” This revolution will be powered by two main technologies: AI and IoT. The change and impact of this revolution will be so profound that it will affect all industries in the world, be it design or manufacturing. It’ll no longer be “if” you want to adopt AI but rather “when and how soon” to adopt AI to survive in the modern marketplace.

Srivastav stated that AI will become like electricity; so widely adopted and accepted that you won’t even question its existence. You will come to accept it as part of your day-to-day life. In fact, there are already many instances of AI use in our daily lives (such as autocomplete) that we just don’t realize. We are already consumers of AI.

The global data center colocation market is experiencing significant growth owing to the expanding use of IoT, cloud computing, and AI/ML technologies. Governments in various countries have launched digitalization initiatives to promote economic development, thereby boosting the operator confidence in managing data centers in the whole region. For example, the UK government implemented a cloud strategy to enhance the country’s adoption of cloud services. This has created a favorable environment for adopting cloud services among the Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) in Europe as businesses increasingly recognize the benefits of digital transformation. The considerable growth in demand for colocation data centers can be attributed to regional organizations continuing to migrate their workloads to the cloud. This has attracted investments from both local and global data center providers.
Growing M&A and Joint Ventures in the Data Center Colocation Market
In the global market, joint ventures and mergers and acquisitions are commonly used strategies for businesses to expand, collaborate, or restructure their operations. The data center industry has witnessed significant joint ventures, mergers, and acquisitions. Additionally, there is an influx of companies from the real estate industry acquiring data center companies to enter the market. These acquisitions and JVs provide opportunities for new players to enter the market, attract customers, and gain a larger market share. Private equity firms are rapidly expanding their investment, considering the increasing demand for data centers and better returns in the short term. New players are entering the market by acquiring existing data center operators or forming joint ventures. Several colocation vendors in the Latin America data center colocation market are actively participating in mergers and acquisitions. For instance, in March 2022, Equinix acquired four data centers of Entel, located in Chile and Peru. In December 2022, Aligned Data Centers agreed to acquire ODATA, marking the company’s entry into the Latin American market.
In Europe, colocation prices vary from country to country. Markets such as the UK, Germany, and France account for the highest colocation pricing in Europe compared to the other markets. The data center colocation market will continue to witness several mergers and acquisitions as large providers or investment trusts continue to propel their market share and presence in the region, thereby driving the colocation market growth. Retail colocation spaces will register a higher demand than wholesale colocation spaces in the region. Conversely, other European markets may offer more competitive pricing due to various factors, including lower operating costs, access to renewable energy sources, and emerging data center hubs. The colocation market in Western Europe is expected to witness several mergers and acquisitions as large providers or investment trusts aim to increase their market share and presence. This consolidation is anticipated to contribute to the continued growth and competitiveness of the European colocation market.
Geographical Overview
Many data center investments are witnessed in the US, driven by the deployment of 5G, technological advances, the adoption of Big data and IoT, digitalization, and the development of smart cities. The Southeastern region, particularly North Virginia, is considered the global data center capital, hosting a high concentration of facilities.

The Northeastern region faces space constraints for data center development, leading to expansions in large-scale colocation facilities. Salt Lake City experiences significant demand from the IT, cloud, entertainment, media, and retail sectors, while Chicago experiences rapid growth and is expected to continue expanding. The US data center colocation market is expected to see the entry of new players. In 2022, notable newcomers, such as AUBix, Edge Centres, Corscale Data Centers, Yondr, and Quantum Loophole, entered the market. However, these newcomers will face competition from both local and established global players in the market. The US data center colocation market is set to continue its revenue growth.
