Features

Our product team is driven to create the most powerful toolset on the market.
Below are just some of the features that make our software an unequivocal leader.

comprehensive library Model Any Data Center

Whether you’re experimenting with state-of-the art hardware or proposing a complex control strategy, DCX’s flexibility allows you to model any data center configuration.

external modeling External Modeling

DCX allows you to analyze the impact of external environmental factors, including wind profiles, terrain roughness, humidity, solar gain, and even exhaust emission contamination from generators.

fresh air Use More Fresh Air

Be more efficient: test the latest indirect and direct free cooling systems, including sprays and wet media.

controls Controls

Model any modern control system, including VFDs, master/slave configurations, and group or staged controls using temperature, pressure, humidity or velocity sensors. Visualize the control logic with the control view canvas.

transient Transient Simulation

From utilizing IT load variations to failing parts of your power and cooling infrastructure, transient simulations offer clear insight into how your DC performance fluctuates over time.

DCIM integration Extensive DCIM Integrations

By syncing with over 15 DCIM tools, the Virtual Facility automatically stays up-to-date with your current inventory and future deployment plans.

metrics Data Center Metrics

Visualize your facility's performance with The Green Grid’s integrated Performance Indicator, and view industry plots including ASHRAE, PUE and SLA compliance.

solve anywhere Solve Anywhere

Our fast and automated parallel solver can scale to make the most of your processing power. Or you can expand into the cloud with secure, scalable and unlimited on-demand compute power.

power network Power Network

Connect the entire power network to show single line diagrams, RPP and PDU panel schedules, breaker overloads and phase balance.

import cad Import 2D and 3D CAD Geometries

Import your existing CAD drawings or geometries to streamline your simulation projects.

failure analysis Failure Analysis

Ensure you're maintaining your facility's resilience: test the impact of switching off fans, pumps, chillers, or any part of your power network.

VR VR – Oculus Rift Ready

6SigmaRoom connects directly to the Oculus Rift for a fully-immersive simulation experience.
