A Unique Combination of
Science and Service

Future Facilities' consultancy service provides real value and pragmatic advice. We create a virtual replica of your data center to analyze its cooling performance, so you can safely explore your deployment options. We also offer data center assessment & design training for consultants and end-users.

We work in data centers every day. Our experience from sites around the world is incorporated into our simulation software, ensuring we continue to create high-fidelity, calibrated models our clients can trust.

Case Study for Cost-Energy Savings:
Citigroup & NYSERDA FlexTech Initiative

Citigroup utilized the Virtual Facility (VF) from Future Facilities to improve their NYC data center’s efficiency, finding 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 creating the potential for the VF to be fully integrated into their workflow.

Bronze | $
An off-site service designed to give you insight into the cooling performance of your conceptual designs.

Example Project
Client: DC Consultant
Project: Cooling and IT layout - Proof of Concept
Key Findings: Control system design was flawed. Site and design constraints meant a number of alternatives were reviewed and a working solution was found.
Project Timeline: One month

Silver | $$
Our entry-level on-site service. We make a brief site visit and provide you with room-level cooling system performance analysis, along with our observations from the data center floor.

Example Project
Client: DC Consultant
Project: Survey as-built shell, evaluate IT layout and cooling design.
Key Findings: Cooling pipe routes were found to adversely impact ACU supply airflow. ACUs were relocated to mitigate this effect. Colocation cages led to warm air build up and higher IT inlet temperatures. Alterations were recommended to restore expected performance.
Project Timeline: One month

Gold | $$$
We inspect your data center in detail all the way up to the racks, so you can see precisely how air is delivered from your air handlers to your rack inlets. Verified through calibration.

Example Project
Client: Aviation Industry
Project: Increase safety margin of cooling system through improvements to air supply path
Key Findings: Cooling delivery paths were safely brought back into a managed state, after the insight gained from an airflow analysis provided both justification for, and risk assessement of, the remedial options. Additional infrastructure was avoided.
Project Timeline: Three weeks

Platinum | $$$$
Our premium offering. We survey your entire data center, going all the way inside the racks to give you a complete picture of cooling performance.

Example Project
Client: Global Bank
Project: Assess cooling performance. Identify areas to obtain operational and efficiency improvements.

Key Findings: Maximum equipment temperatures were lowered through alterations to internal rack configurations, and supply air pressures in contained cold aisles were rebalanced in preparation for large equipment deployments.
Project Timeline: Three months

External - Image

External | $ to $$$$
Understand the impact of different ambient conditions on your external plant. Identify worst-case wind directions, contaminant pathways, risk of temperature and humidity recirculation, and more.

Example Project
Client: Design Consultant
Project: Free-cooling external design analysis
Key Takeaways: Free-cooled units suffered from external recirculation, limiting peak cooling performance. Free-cooled units were lab tested to reconfirm nominal performance. Updated building design options were proposed and performance was evaluated.
Project Timeline: Two months
