Cormant Inc. and Future Facilities have announced a new partnership. Together they will deliver a greater level of visibility into the data center and provide actionable tasks to improve the data center utilization, reducing energy cost, and prolonging the facilities life.

The partnership between Cormant and Future Facilities provides data center operators the ability to use the mobile enabled Cormant DCIM solution to accurately document and manage every piece of data center equipment in real-time. This data can then be exchanged with the Future Facilities 6SigmaDCX’s engineering simulation solution, where the impact of any change to the data center can be tested in a risk-free environment before being hardwired into the operational site. This data collaboration will allow data center infrastructure and operations teams to work together to ensure the correct balance of efficiency, risk and capacity to meet the business KPIs.

“I am excited about our partnership with Future Facilities as we share a common goal to deliver robust, actionable information, but within products that are easy to use and flexible in how they are operated”. explains Paul Goodison, chief executive officer, Cormant. “Both Cormant and Future Facilities offer exceptional value and with the constant pressure to maximize facility utilization; this simple integration produces immediate, measurable benefits,” added Goodison.

“In the typical data centre environment, there are gaps between the work done by Facilities and that done by IT” said Jon Leppard, director, Future Facilities. By integrating Cormant's DCIM tool with Future Facilties' engineering simulation solution, critical data center facilities can be managed with greater precision and control. Now Facilities and IT teams can bridge these data, process and engineering gaps — improving operational management and enabling safer delivery of change within a data center”
