A new white paper from Future Facilities outlines the updates and features in the newest version of their 6Sigma Digital Twin platform.
Future Facilities has announced the launch of Release 16 of their 6Sigma DCX product suite. “The 6Sigma Digital Twin is a 3D, physics-based, virtual model of the data center used to manage decision making in design and operations” according to the paper. 6Sigma Digital Twin includes 6SigmaAccess, 6SigmaRoom, and the 6SigmaRoom Modules.
The paper says that “6SigmaDCX Release 16 pushes the boundaries of modeling software, with cutting-edge graphics and streamlined integrations for your business process — including fully automated build, edit, solve, and report workflows.” In terms of data center design, Release 16 allows users to automate reports that feature photorealistic model snapshots, introduces new views and objects that make visualizations easier, and offers extensive library items and integrations. Customizable dashboards and charts, extensive power configurations, and the straightforward model maintenance offered with this release make data center operations easier.
Release 16 provides a holistic view of data center performance, so colocation data centers can optimize capacity while mitigating risk. – Future Facilities, “Release 16: Empowering Data Center Teams with Each New Software Release“
The authors also outline typical use cases for the 6Sigma Digital Twin. They note that the system has been implemented by colocation providers, enterprise owners and operators, data center consultants, and data center equipment vendors because the “product suite streamlines data center design, as well as day-to-day operations management.”
Release 16 provides a robust look at a data center’s performance for colocation providers, and consolidates key information for enterprise owners so they can make informed decisions. This release also reduces the timeline for model building and design, helping consultants to “meet project timelines with ease.” For vendors, this new release allows them to perfect thermal design by simplifying equipment analysis.
The paper includes links to videos that explore how the new software release supports each of these areas and provide a link to a free trial.
