The colocation segment of the data center industry has changed significantly in recent years, and the pace of change is expected to accelerate going forward. Data centers are constantly being asked to improve their agility, accommodate higher densities, and meet or exceed the sustainability and environmental goals of their customers. These factors are driving innovation at colocation data centers.
A new white paper from Future Facilities presents a case study of how Thésée DataCenter, a French colocation data center provider, uses a digital twin to delivery a unique, interactive experience for their customers. The paper first outlines the challenge the data center was looking to overcome. They needed to maximize capacity, while also ensuring both cost-effective energy efficiency and a best-in-class customer experience.
The paper then outlines the solution and how it was implemented. This includes discussion of the data center management system (DCMS) and how a digital twin was deployed and will be used in the long-term. The white paper also presents how the company used artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to ensure the data center delivered the best performance in the most energy efficient manner.
