FFL launches 6SigmaDCX R15 to reduce risk, improve reliability, and accelerate design

With Future Facilities 15th release of its 6SigmaDCX product suite, users are better equipped to handle growing demands on data center performance and reliability. 

The 6SigmaDCX product suite creates a Digital Twin of the data center that can predict how the data center’s resilience, physical capacity, and cooling efficiency will react in different situations to reduce guess work and risk. To help the data center industry get the most out of their simulation software, Future Facilities launched 6SigmaDCX Release 15. Release 15 supports a variety of industry sectors, including colocation, enterprise, consultants, and vendors, with new analytical tools, faster model creation and automated features. 

Future Facilities’ software development is driven by customer input and industry trends. This unprecedented year has highlighted the importance for the data center industry to be equipped to manage change and mitigate risk. We believe that the right tools are essential to achieving this. 

“From consolidated data and streamlined reports to enhanced graphics and readymade objects, we wanted to ensure that the 6SigmaDXC user’s experience was straightforward. Release 15 is our way of making your job easier,” says Mark Fenton, Product Manager at Future Facilities.  

Future Facilities added several new features and improvements. Here are some highlights:

  • Photorealistic Graphics: create crisp reporting content quickly
  • Liquid Cooling: model liquid cooled systems with the only software offering a fully integrated connection between the 1D flow network and the 3D model
  • Integrated Data: use CAD and BIM data to accelerate model builds
  • Faster Model Creation: automate model creation and post processing
  • Improved Reporting: streamline reporting with customizable templates
  • Updated Power Views: analyze spare power capacity and connect IT to rack PDUs
