Future Facilities North America (Future Facilities NA) has announced that Ingenium, a data center consulting and engineering firm based in Costa Rica, has selected Future Facilities’ 6SigmaDC software for use in the design and maintenance of Ingenium’s clients’ data centers.

By leveraging Future Facilities’ flagship computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling software, Ingenium will be able to ensure its clients that both new data center designs and retrofits of existing data centers will have maximized thermal and airflow efficiency.

“Future Facilities is the most sophisticated and accurate CFD and data center modeling software on the market,” said Fernando Garcia, CEO of Ingenium. “By using 6SigmaDC, our customers will benefit from significant savings in design costs and capital expenditures.”

“We’re delighted that Ingenium has selected Future Facilities to support its data center clients,” said Christian Pastrana, sales manager, Americas, Future Facilities NA. “Simulation is an effective way of managing both risk and cost when designing a new data centers, and ensuring that legacy data centers are operating at maximum efficiency.”

Data center cooling resources, which are responsible for 40% to 60% of a typical data center’s energy consumption, are often overprovisioned and are therefore a primary source of data center inefficiency. Computational fluid dynamics systems like 6SigmaDC are designed to help identify and correct thermal and airflow inefficiencies that waste precious IT financial resources.
