A new white paper from Future Facilities presents six case studies illustrating how digital twin virtualization technology has helped organizations in the healthcare, aerospace, automotive, and finance sectors manage the constant change found in the data center industry.
“From rising densities and new cooling technologies to shrinking budgets and shifting environmental policies, there’s never a shortage of change in our field,” according to a new white paper from Future Facilities. Regardless of what’s driving change, Future Facilities says it’s imperative that data centers keep up with the new normal.
Digital twin technology is a powerful tool that enterprise data center operators can deploy to make sure they’re keeping pace with the rapidly evolving industry. According to the paper, a digital twin is a virtual copy of your data center. The technology “provides a holistic view of data center performance, empowering data center design and operations.” In short, it allows you to fine tune your ecosystem without risk because you’ll see the impact of any changes in the virtual world first, not the real environment.
Now, more than ever, data center professionals must do more than just firefight issues to survive: they must be ready to adapt to rapid change to succeed. – Future Facilities, “Reimagining Enterprise Data Center Design and Operations“
The paper presents six case studies illustrating how digital twin virtualization technology has benefitted global organizations in the healthcare, aerospace, automotive, and finance sectors. Proof points include reductions in data center power consumption, increases in data center efficiencies, increases in the potential lifespan of data center assets, and the optimization of data center transformations.
Future Facilities outlines how digital twin technology aided a company in the finance sector by “offering savings of $10 million with increases in availability, capacity, and energy efficiency.” For a company in the automotive sector, deploying a digital twin helped them to improve cooling efficiencies across their data halls. They also “found a solution for asset management and placement, as well as a platform to foster collaboration across IT and Facilities teams.”
