Data center predictive modeling (DCPM) is a methodology using a computer model to predict and give an in-depth
review of the data center in the future. This computer model is based on the statistical descriptions of the infrastructure
that are a part of the data center.
The performance of the data center is reviewed and using the Virtual Facility the future performance of the data centers is predicted. Virtual Facility is a 3D computer model built by the technical experts of the data center.
It is used in various ways to investigate and tackle any issues like future IT layouts, energy efficiency measures, operational units, cooling failure scenarios and additional cooling capacity options, disaster recovery planning, designs for future data center buildings and many more. It thus gives the operations team of the data center to visualize the likely implications that could happen of any change even before they actually happen.
