Demand for AI computing power is surging as application scenarios and technology architectures diversify
The Forrester report highlights the need for AI development to be supported by AI infrastructure. AI scenarios and the proliferation of digital businesses have accelerated in recent years, causing exponential growth in the demand for computing power. In particular, AI requires a high number of algorithms and very large datasets. Consequently, AI infrastructure deployments need to be done on a large scale, while also satisfying other demands, including high concurrency, high elasticity, and high precision. Thus, enterprises have increasingly high requirements for AI infrastructure and full-stack AI solutions.
The use and benefits of AI continues to spread to a diverse assortment of industries, including finance, manufacturing, telecommunications, medical care, and transportation. As a result, diversified application scenarios are the new trend in AI development. According to the Forrester report, AI training and inferencing workloads run best on purpose-built systems. Therefore, the AI chip market is in a state of fierce competition, with AI chips becoming more and more diversified. At the same time, management platforms must be able to support the diverse proliferation of chips to better manage AI infrastructure resources.
