Recent Survey Highlights Flaws in Data Center Capacity Planning

Future Facilities, Inc., provider of the digital twin for design and operations of data centers, today announced the results of its study on capacity planning for critical facilities.

IT and facilities are struggling with capacity planning – 90% compromise capacity planning at least some of the time because they do not receive quality data about IT equipment or system performance. Over 2 in 5 feel they could make better decisions if they receive quality data in time (41%) or that upgrading infrastructure would have a better impact on operations (43%).

With 85% of the organizations in the survey reporting outages or downtime in the last twelve months with the average (mean) downtime costing £122,054 ($150,619), the problem is real. Many cannot get quality data about data center performance or meet their deadlines because of this.

A digital twin offers benefits in the form of a collaborative platform that can calculate what-if scenarios, prevent network failures, and facilitate moving to a high-density environment. For those companies utilizing Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), there were significantly less downtime episodes reported in the past 12 months.

Half of the organizations studied are considering using a CFD tool that virtually represents the physical data center as a planning tool in the next year to keep track of their systems. For many organizations, knowledge of CFD, cost and trust in the system are barriers to adoption.

“This study highlights some of the key challenges with capacity planning and points to the digital twin as a solution,” said Akhil Docca, Director of Marketing at Future Facilities. “It’s a significant issue for IT and facilities teams when companies are reporting they have to compromise capacity planning because they don’t have visibility into their equipment and performance. Simulations like CFD offer that visibility and a way to model any data center environment to understand issues like networking, cooling, power, and configuration.”
