Future Facilities announced the availability of the 6SigmaDC Suite Release 7.1. The update of the data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software offers improved functionality with a major focus on increased usability for modeling and reporting.
The new release features the ability to build complex models of data center halls. New functionality' provides continuous visual feedback about the placement of objects relative to one another in a model. A new search tool has been added to enable dynamic searches of the entire 6SigmaDC library. The addition of 250 new symbols, as well as a catalog of Great Lakes' 5-star E, EN and ES Series equipment cabinets has enhanced the database of equipment images. Also new in release 7.1 is the improvement to cooling duct design and modeling with easier sketching.
"With higher levels of granularity, 6SigmaDC Release 7.1 promises even more realistic data centre modeling," said Mark Seymour, CTO at Future Facilities. "As a result, users of the 6SigmaDC suite can expect to see improvements in usability and productivity throughout the data centre lifecycle from design to decommissioning."
Other new features include flexible controllers that can be set control both temperature and pressure simultaneously, and an extension to allow full connectivity of the power chain from utility supply to the socket.
