Datacenters have become increasingly complex and critical for most businesses. Therefore, finding a way to enable more agile and efficient operations from them should be on the priority task list. This is where datacenter automation comes in. CIOs believe it can boost operational efficiency, reduce security risks and improve compliance and digital agility. Datacenter automation manages and executes routine workflows and techniques such as scheduling, monitoring, maintenance, enforcement, and delivery without human intervention. Companies and service providers are investing heavily in automation technology to ensure that datacenters can meet the demands of modern digital infrastructure. Last year alone, the global datacenter automation market reached $7.85 billion and is projected to reach around $28.58 billion by 2032, according to Precedence Research. By service, the installation, and support services segment contributed the largest marke Per deployment, the cloud segment generated over 52% revenue share in 2022. By company size, the large enterprise segment captured over 70% of the revenue share in 2022. On the basis of datacenter automation solutions segment, the market is segmented into network automation, server automation and storage automation. Last year, the server automation segment captured the largest share (52%) and is expected to grow at a faster pace this year, driven by increasing demand for efficient servers, which also leads to adequate network and storage facilities. The benefits of server automation include clean architecture, secure and reliable environment configuration, more accessible and reliable, instant feedback, software policies, variety of interfaces and tools, testing and rollback of deployments. Considering the most important verticals – telecom and information technology (IT), media and entertainment, healthcare, banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), public sector, manufacturing, and retail – the Telecom and IT segment generated the largest share. It is arguable that datacenter automation is becoming a strategic imperative for all telecom service providers, driven by the increased deployment of 5G networks and edge computing. Automation is expected to become more prevalent in datacenters by 2023, with a focus on reducing operational costs and improving efficiency. This technology will be leveraged to automate processes such as provisioning, configuration and monitoring, as well as for predictive analytics. At the core of the automated datacenter is the ability to automatically provision and de-provision resources dynamically, based on conditions that exist in real time in the datacenter. This automation should be accomplished through open, standards-based integration mechanisms, such as a service-enabled API.
