Liebert, Aperture, Future Facilities pen deal

Mark Fontecchio Mark Fontecchio Profile: Mark Fontecchio

Data center cooling giant Liebert (part of Emerson Network Power) is teaming up with Aperture and Future Facilities in a push to be the leader in data center prototyping and analysis.

The companies are not merging, but have penned a deal to combine their forces in a push to become the leader in data center prototyping and design. The biggest part of the deal is probably the integration of Future Facilities’ 6SigmaDC computational fluid dynamics software with Aperture’s Vista software. It will allow the CFD airflow analyses done by Future Facilities to take advantage of the large inventory database of IT equipment that Aperture has.

Liebert is still a big part of the deal, however, as its base of customers is larger than either of the other two companies by far.

The full press release spells out a few more details. The companies announced the deal in the midst of AFCOM’s Data Center World conference in Orlando. Check out all of our Data Center World coverage.
