DescriptionService interruption and downtime cause devastating damage for cloud service providers and enterprises. When weighing the true cost of datacenter uptime, we must factor in meticulous redundancy and resilience strategies. Such a level of availability does not happen by chance. It is a result of sophisticated topologies and routine maintenance procedures. When dealing with complexities of advanced electronics and the increasing reliability requirements, such an approach is difficult to maintain at scale.

This panel will discuss the emerging field of predictive maintenance, addressing issues related to the potential return-on-investment. Panelists will focus on cost, real estate and power efficiencies versus risks of data corruption and integrity. In addition, the speakers will examine the significance of forward-looking practices during production versus monitoring of deployed electronics in the datacenter. Lastly, the panel will discuss the increasing need for data and lifecycle correlation between the value chain players. What is needed in order to ensure the level of serviceability required and what measures can chip manufacturers take to guarantee lifetime reliability?
