6SigmaDC Predictive DCIM suite delivers major performance upgrades

Share Article

Release 8 of Future Facilities' 6SigmaDC software suite brings a raft of user-led performance updates to further enhance its market leading Predictive DCIM capabilities.

Customers are telling us they want to do more and more predictive modelling... of their data centres. We've responded by making it easier and quicker for them.

Future Facilities, the world’s only provider of Predictive DCIM (Data Centre Infrastructure Management) software, has launched a significant update to its powerful and highly-regarded predictive modelling suite, 6SigmaDC.

Release 8 delivers predictive modelling of data centre environments 5-6x faster than the previous versions. Overall, performance of the entire 6SigmaDC suite is 2x faster, delivering substantial improvements in productivity and usability for users.

Release 8 represents a major step forward in integrating 6SigmaDC with DCIM tools. The new 6SigmaGateway offers enhanced connectivity to third-party live data sources (such as sensors, servers, PDUs, ACUs), and empowers customers to incorporate predictive modelling into their DCIM workflows.

Predictive DCIM, which employs computational fluid dynamics techniques to model complex “what if” scenarios with unmatched accuracy, mitigates risk and scientifically quantifies the effects of data centre changes prior to commitment or deployment.

Enhanced usability features in Release 8 enable customers to more quickly and intuitively build complex data centre models using on-screen hints, tooltips and a library of data centre components. This library features nearly 3,000 of the industry’s most widely used data centre products.

Future Facilities’ CEO, Hassan Moezzi, said: “Customers are telling us that they want to do more and more predictive modelling across all aspects of the day-to-day operation of their data centres. We’ve responded by making it much easier and quicker for them to build their data halls and start predicting. Release 8 reinforces the good work that we’ve already done to propel us to the cutting edge of data centre predictive modelling”.

Over 300 enhancements have been made across the suite for Release 8, which also includes much improved integration of CAD files and a faster solver. A new batch solver also allows users to develop complex models and then solve them remotely.

Release 8 incorporates:

  •     Much faster performance
  •     Easy Integration - Why stop at DCIM?
  •     Complex Modelling – rapid import of native CAD formats
  •     Enhanced usability – self-discoverable and easier than ever to use
  •     Batch solver – Submit. Pack up. Go home.

Existing users are encouraged to upgrade to the new version, which is available immediately via the user support site.
