The Virtual Facility powered by engineering simulation

Citigroup has utilised the Virtual Facility (VF) from Future Facilities to improve its NYC data centre 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 return on investment in just 6 months. Powered by engineering simulation, the VF allowed Citigroup to simulate and predict the impact of any change to infrastructure – removing uncertainty in the decision-making process and laying the groundwork for the VF to be fully integrated into their workflow.
