Is your raised floor up to the job?

The high power-requirements of most modern datacenters make it essential that they are designed and managed to provide an optimum air recirculation system – often achieved by using a raised floor to create a ‘floor void’ as a supply plenum.

So, a big concern for any facility manager planning a new install is whether the floor can support the extra loading imposed upon it by not only the cabinets and equipment, but also the fixtures and fittings that come with it, e.g.: extra cabling and fan trays.

The 6SigmaWeight module integrates with 6SigmaRoom and 6SigmaFM to give datacenter designers and managers a rapid and ongoing understanding of the weight loads on raised floors.

    Let the software work it out!

     Instant notification when you exceed your floor's      design load limits by overstacking will ensure you will      never have to worry about the floor disappearing from      beneath you.


User definable limits

Set your own thresholds to conform with your own policies.

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
