Managing the IP network for a datacenter is now a challenge In itself. The burgeoning demand for more data at higher speeds results in complex networks which if poorly managed can result in high costs and have a detrimental impact upon cooling. Choosing this option with a room scale product (6SigmaRoom or 6SigmaFM) allows you to record and manage the IP network connections in the VF.

If cable obstructions are calculated automatically from the 6SigmaNetwork network connections then it is likely that the thermal assessments using the 6SigmaCooling module will be improved as a result of the better understanding of the network cabling and the obstructions it creates.

  • Resources

    Keep track of your network

     Record and manage your IP connections to help      minimise real life blockages / pinch points detrimental      to connectivity and also airflow.



Breaking it down

Easily locate server connections and paths utilising views of both the logical and physical (3D).

Hardware Recommendations

6SigmaDC is a program suite that will require different levels of hardware resource depending on the size and complexity of the models it is used to create and run.
For the sake of basic training and other small models (< 500sqft), it will run on a standard laptop with 1GB RAM and integrated graphics.
Any other modelling use is likely to require more powerful hardware.
The license server component, which can be installed separately on a remote machine, requires very little resource and should run on any supported Windows PC.
Supported Operating Systems. 32 and 64bit: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003,Windows Server 2008, Windows HPC Server 2008.
Virtual machines are not recommended.

Example configurations for mid-range systems:
Laptop - Mobile Core i7, 4-8GB RAM, Discrete graphics, 500GB HDD
Desktop - Core i7 or Xeon UP, 12GB RAM, nVidia Quadro FX 580, 1TB HDD
Server - Xeon DP or MP, 32GB+ RAM, nVidia Quadro FX 1800, 1TB HDD
