Success within a data center starts with effective communication between teams, and a planning process that is as agile as it is reliable. Current industry practices favor short-term fixes over long-term capacity management strategies. Over time, this reduces data center performance.
Because data center managers must respond to problems as they arise, they are often forced to risk resiliency and efficiency by making decisions based on inadequate data.
How can you make informed capacity plans while still maintaining flexibility and speed? By using the Digital Twin.
The digital twin is a customized toolset that enables teams to communicate and plan effectively, ensuring both speed and quality in data center capacity planning.
Connect IT and facilities teams to better analyze the effects of IT changes on power, space and cooling before physical deployment.
Analyze “what-if” scenarios ranging from high-density deployments to equipment failures and ensure that plans can be implemented safely.
Remove bottlenecks and combat unnecessary costs by increasing confidence and communication between teams.
The digital twin is a 3D virtual model of the physical data center. It is a centralized platform designed specifically for data center operations that unites IT, facilities and data center managers for analysis and decision-making.
For the IT or hardware planner, the platform enables you to propose asset changes. This is done through our browser-based, multi-user tool called 6SigmaAccess.
Facilities engineers use 6SigmaRoom to predict the impact of proposed changes on power distribution, space utilization, weight limits and cooling paths.
