Robots Promise Energy and Operational Cost Reduction

The word ‘robot’ was first heard in a 1920 Czechoslovakian theater production to describe human-like machines that were created to work in a factory. Thereafter, including Fritz Lang’s 1927 sci-fi masterpiece, “Metropolis,” with its female robot ‘Hel,’ to Steven Spielberg’s 2001 movie, “A.I.,” and its Mecha, advanced androids capable of emulating human thoughts and emotions, to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Terminator” franchise, robots have appeared in films, on television and in literature as agents of good and evil.

While the definition of the word robot means “drudgery” or “hard work” in Czech, organizations today are applying robotics to specialized data center applications in an effort to eliminate the sweat, cost and toil associated with day-to-day facility administration.

The biggest business driver to deploying robotics in the data center is the need for greater levels of efficiency. Companies are always looking for ways to make their IT infrastructures more agile and less costly, and robotics has been identified as a means to add more automation to achieve these goals. Additional potential benefits include IT staff head-count reduction, improved security and the increased accuracy of monitoring that automation brings. Click here for more details.
