Today in Cleantech

There’s been some cool developments in the data center thermal modeling biz this week. First, SynapSense and Future Facilities have teamed to add a little of the former’s monitoring and computational fluid dynamics tech to Future’s virtual data center modeling tools. Optimum Path Systems, on the other hand, is changing the economics of 3D temperature monitoring and modeling by employing inexpensive RFID tags in place of pricey, hard-wired sensors. Neat, but what I want to know is, how long before virtual 3D walkthroughs become the norm in data center monitoring?
