CFD for Data Center
and Infrastructure Design

Whether you're designing a new data center, planning expansions for an existing site or designing critical power and cooling infrastructure, the Virtual Facility gives you confidence that your design will work first time - and won't compromise your client's requirements. 

Using the power of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), 6SigmaDCX dramatically simplifies your design process - so you can test cooling and power performance before the first brick is laid.

Innovative Cooling Design:
Delivering Capacity & Resilience with Confidence

When RED Engineering designed a state-of-the-art rooftop plant for a Tier III 40,000 ft2 data center, they wanted to use the latest technology advances in cooling systems and design techniques.

They used the Virtual Facility to model the external environment and run simulations to ensure that the cooling system they designed would deliver the required capacity and resilience.
