No in-house capabilities? No problem.
Our professional services teams can help, whether you want to reduce hot-spots, improve ASHRAE compliance, verify the cooling performance of your facility or even design the space outside of your data center. We work with clients whose interests range from legacy DC to cutting edge design for all applications including enterprise, colo and cloud.
Citigroup utilized the Virtual Facility (VF) from Future Facilities to improve their NYC data center’s efficiency, uncovering potential savings of over $290,000 annually. With an initial investment of just $28,500 for remediation, the project is expected to see a full ROI in 6 months.
Powered by engineering simulation, the VF allowed Citigroup to simulate and predict the impact of any change – removing uncertainty in the decision-making process and laying the groundwork for the VF to be fully integrated into their workflow.
