University hopes to spur industry innovation.

A London university hopes it adoption of data centre modelling software will help find new insights and spur innovation in the industry.

The London South Bank University (LSBU) has adopted Romonet's predictive analytics software as it modernises its data centre design courses for undergraduate and Masters students.

And LSBU believes the Romonet Software Suite's in-depth analytics could set a new bar in defining accurate predictions and understanding of data centre costs in the industry.

Course director Dr Issa Chaer told CBR: "One of our aims of this is not just to model data centres and do predictive modelling. The aim is also to share the information we gather with our industrial partners.

"We pride ourselves in our ability to engage with industry and applied research and for research to feedback into the teaching. We have an umbilical cord between industry and academia."

Romonet announced the partnership with the university today at Data Centre World, and boasts that the tool can model construction and maintenance costs as well as performance based on a variety of factors.

LSBU is using the software on its course as it tries to produce graduates better-equipped to tackle data centre issues such as cooling costs.

"This will enhance their knowledge," said Dr Chaer. "It gives them an idea of how data centres work, what systems are integrated and used in data centres, how they integrate - it gives them a holistic view of the design and implementation."
