Data center monitoring and management have come a long way over the past few years, with 2020 accelerating and intensifying much of that growth. We are starting to see emerging technologies like 3D modeling/digital twinning, augmented reality/virtual reality, and artificial intelligence/machine learning take data center monitoring and management to the next level. For example, digital twin technology has allowed for 3D modeling of data center environments that help visualize thermal performance, airflow patterns, and capacity availability. When coupled with AR/VR, these environments create a virtual walkthrough of the facility, making remote monitoring and management even more lifelike. Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, AI/ML helps make sense of all this information and data that’s being collected to allow for more predictive maintenance, instead of just reactive maintenance.
