Awards

At Future-tech we are proud of our status as a multi-award winning data centre consultancy. Our awards offer valuable external recognition of our achievements, as well as being testament to our expertise and experience in data centre design and build. Most importantly, they offer third party assurance as to our status as a leader in data centre best practise, innovative data centre design and data centre efficiency.

Certified Energy Efficient Data Centre Award

The CEEDA gold award independently recognises that Future-tech follows and implements best practice in data centre energy efficiency. BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, provides this means of assessing and accrediting facilities for energy efficiency and the gaining of an award offers proof that an organisation is committed to benchmarking themselves as leaders in data centre efficiency, reducing energy costs and meeting the needs of increasing carbon legislation.

Winner of the DataCentreDynamics Innovation in Micro Data Centre Design 2009 & 2010, Finalists 2011

These awards offer recognition that Future-tech is a market leader in efficient, innovative design in the micro data centre.

Facilities that house up to 50 cabinets and have an IT load of under 350kW fall into this category and as these facilities are often housed in buildings not designed with data centres in mind, there are inherent constraints in implementable efficiency measures. These awards, judged by an independent panel of experts, are testament to Future-techs innovative approach to such projects, an approach that has led to the design and build of micro data centres with annualised PUEs of less than 1.18.

Winner of the DataCentreDynamics Innovation in IT Optimisation Award 2012

This Award recognises and rewards Future-techs innovation in IT optimisation.

We have consistently enabled our client organisations to successfully re-define the role the data centre performs within their corporate and IT strategy. Although optimisation may represent any number of transformational processes, including systems integration, virtualisation, unified computing, asset consolidation and optimisation, management automation and a move to cloud-derived on-demand architectures, our holistic view of the data centre as a critical unit within a strategically driven business function, has led to clients fully realising the opportunities presented by IT optimization.
