The Data Center Digital Twin

The Data Center Digital Twin by Future Facilities & CEG

Historically, data center management has been split into silos that each focus on one aspect of managing a data center. Today, as businesses demand more and more from their digital infrastructure, the primary weakness of this approach emerges, namely that silos cannot foresee the performance impact of their plans combined.

The Digital Twin is a 3D virtual replica of your data center that can simulate its physical behavior under any operating scenario. Our platform encompasses the entire data center ecosystem, including virtual representations of the building blocks of your data center—the power, cooling and IT systems components from all major OEMs.
The Digital Twin brings all stakeholders together to foresee and take control of the performance and business impact of operations on your data center. CEG's expertise combined with Future Facilities physics-based simulation, provides your teams with a centralized, collaborative platform to maximize the business value and performance of your critical environment.

How are Digital Twin and DCIM different, yet complementary?

While the Digital Twin and DCIM are complementary toolsets, they do have one, distinct difference. DCIM is focused on managing the data center at this present moment through monitoring, asset management and workflow. The Digital Twin builds on this model with a focus on future planning and implementation through physics-based simulation. The below maturity model delves into more detail.
