Video: Jon Koomey on Predictive Modeling

Data center energy expert Jonathan Koomey recently spoke about predictive data center analysis in a talk titled, “Why Predictive Modeling is Essential for Managing a Modern Data Center Facility” at Data Center Dynamics in San Francisco. He stated that the business problem amounts to the disconnect between the way IT services are supposed to support business value and the way decisions about their deployment are made. He also spoke about today’s trend toward using computer models to manage data centers and predict data center capacity. Capacity in a data center is like a game of “Tetris,” and the blocks of capacity don’t fit neatly together, resulting in “voids” or lost capacity. He uses the Tetris metaphor to explain how data center capacity becomes fragmented and stranded over time, thus stranding capacity and CapEx as well. The video runs 34 minutes.
