Eaton has announced its collaboration with Red Dot Analytics (RDA) to develop AI-focused solutions and use cases for data centers in areas including predictive maintenance, anomaly detection, and energy efficiency optimization. Set to commence in April 2024, the collaboration brings together Eaton's digital expertise in data center power and infrastructure management with RDA's Cognitive Digital Twin (DT) technology to improve the sustainability, agility, and resiliency of data center infrastructure. Eaton's collaboration with RDA reinforces its commitment to supporting the resilience of mission-critical infrastructure and ensuring that sustainable, efficient, and cost-competitive solutions are accessible to all.

Eaton and RDA will also embark on joint pilot projects within the industry to test and encourage the adoption of new solutions that improve the sustainability and resilience of AI data centers. The association with RDA builds on the momentum of Eaton's existing research collaborations, such as the Sustainable Tropical Data Centre Testbed (STDCT) project, where Eaton joined as a consortium member to help advance the development of commercially viable, innovative, and sustainable cooling solutions for tropical data centers.
