Align's core business is developing data center strategies to address today's business & technology requirements. Future Facilities intuitive software offers Align engineers clear insight into the modeling necessary to plan new data centers and retrofit existing ones. Through the interface between Future Facilities CFD modeling software and Align's Asset Point? IT asset management software, Align's engineers can now plan precise placement of technology assets within the data center to more accurately predict heating and cooling needs. These 3-D virtual models show the thermal/environmental behavior of the facility , down to the granular level of individual pieces of equipment. This allows for exceptional flexibility in planning equipment layouts, load distribution and cooling cycles.
In North America and the UK, Align's Data Center Design Practice focuses on new data center designs, server migration & relocations and survival strategies for existing data centers. In the US, Align will also serve as a sales and consulting arm for Future Facilities. – less–ZoomInfo
