Data center availability is one of the most important aspects when downtime can also quickly have a financial impact. In order to detect problems at an early stage and this avoid downtime, the term “predictive maintenance” becomes increasingly important
When talking about predictive maintenance, it is usually about improving and avoiding delays in data deployment. In the data center area, the focus is more on systems and devices such as:
- UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply)
- Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
These components are the physical basis of every data center in order to ensure trouble-free operation. The larger the data center, the more of these components there are, and also the more the need for regular maintenance increases.
In order to make predictions about unknown future events, predictive analysis is needed. This is a business analytics and information management related discipline. Organizations use techniques and modeling to analyze current data and obtain case-based predictions and forecasts.
