Business is placing digital counterpart of company’s equipment in external DCs

Digital counterpart for a business do not have a clear definition, according to Forrester Research center, but this the theme is constantly rising. The analytical company proposes to consider the digital counterpart as a virtual mirror. If you move, your reflection will also move. In addition, it is unique. If someone else appears in front of the mirror, even your twin, the reflection will be different.

Thus, a digital counterpart is a virtual copy of a real equipment that is working in your company. The equipment (server, computer or cluster) can have “twins” produced by the same company, having the same design and components, but at the same time having significant differences. The difference could be the result of service history, equipment`s wearing conditions, corporate software interacting with the equipment - are extremely important if your business, if it is built on machine management.

This is the reason of creating digital counterparts: they reflect the features of a particular equipment and the associated data in real time, and these data can be used to make business decisions, improve operations or even change the basic business model.

A variety of companies offer assistance in creating such counterparts for your products and infrastructures. The question is, how much they can be trusted.

For example the medical equipment equipped with sensors providing additional services. Real-time data from sensors could inform users about impending failures. And this would allow users even before the equipment fails to call service specialists and even show them through augmented reality what they have to do.

As practice shows companies already applying this solution - the ideal option for placing a digital copy of the equipment is any commercial data center, located close to your company geographically. In this case, you are not only receiving a remote copy of your equipment, but the experience and services of additional specialists working in the data center, ready to help you.
