Accelerate your data center capacity planning with the digital twin

It is no surprise that today’s data center executives are constantly looking to reduce the total spend on their operating budget. Current industry practices, however, demonstrate a different reality: companies are overspending by 36% with regards to their data center operating budget and—more alarmingly—data center operators are building three data centers for every two data centers they need. This is an unsustainable practice—financially and otherwise.

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 favour short-term fixes over long-term capacity management strategies. Over time, this reduces data center performance.

How can you make informed, sustainable capacity plans while still maintaining flexibility and speed? By using the digital twin. Mark Fenton and Adam Smith explain how.
