6SigmaRoom, from Future Facilities, is the gold standard for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation modeling for the design and operations of data centers. CFD is an effective way to get an accurate picture of the airflow in your data center and predicts the effect of any changes you plan to make.
Graphical Networks netTerrain DCIM synchronizes with a Digital Twin model in 6SigmaRoom, the DCX suite’s capacity planning tool.
With this integration, Data Center Managers using netTerrain DCIM and 6Sigma can predict and minimize the risk of thermal failure.
While tracking the data center assets, power, space, weight availability, and temperatures through its Environmental Monitoring Module, netTerrain DCIM can now have data about airflow, IT & MEP infrastructure and predict the impact on the data center of future system installations.
Data Center Managers can see how placing new equipment such as a rack will lead to a hot spot or other issues. In a simulation environment, managers can also perform “what-if” scenarios before committing to any changes.
