DCD Enterprise: Future Facilities introduces 6SigmaDCX Version 11

17 March, 2017

”For this release, we’ve focused on performance, usability, and connectivity. The new version allows users to access a cut down version of the model to see data from a virtual data center,” David King, product manager at Future Facilities, told DCD.

Data center optimization specialist Future Facilities has launched the 11th iteration of its 6SigmaDCX simulation software.

The latest version features improvements to the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) engine, used to model airflow inside the data center, as well as 6SigmaAcess – a new tool that can be used to simplify IT deployments.

“Release 11 includes a robust list of enhancements that increase the versatility and functionality of the software suite. The result is a greater capability to predict and analyze events in the data center before deploying IT equipment and critical infrastructure, which is a major advantage in preventing downtime and loss of capital,” said Sherman Ikemoto, director of Future Facilities North America.

6SigmaDCX 11 was officially launched at the DCD Enterprise show in New York earlier this week.
