Hosting ServicesSAN JOSE, CA – Future Facilities has introduced 6SigmaDC release 6.1 of its popular data center design and operations software. The new release provides an enhanced toolset for the virtual modeling of electronic components, systems and data centers, enabling cooling challenges to be addressed right throughout the supply chain.

Using 6SigmaDC, data center designers can construct a holistic and mathematically accurate 3D model of any facility at any point in its lifecycle. The model, or Virtual Facility (VF), can then be used to assess initial design proposals as well as layout and load changes prior to physical implementation; saving time and avoiding risk and cost.

Web Hosting BlogCOLUMBIA, MD – Fortress International Group (Other OTC: FIGI), a provider of consulting and engineering, construction management and 24/7/365 site services for mission-critical facilities, today announced that its subsidiary, Total Site Solutions (TSS) has been selected as part of a team for the planning, design and construction Administration for the State of Montana’s new Enterprise System Services Center sites in Helena and Miles City, Montana. This engineering effort addressed all disciplines including civil, architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, communications, fire protection and security systems.

In developing this project, Montana state officials emphasized service providers capable of employing high levels of energy efficiency to meet the state’s emission reduction objectives.  TSS presented several energy saving free cooling options for the data center design, including the Kyoto wheel manufactured by KyotoCooling International in the Netherlands.  TSS was able to calculate a life cycle cost with favorable payback for several systems, ultimately recommending the Kyoto Cooling System as the best value solution. The Montana site in Helena will be the first data center in the United States to use the ultra efficient Kyoto Energy Transfer Wheel. Read more

Hosting ToolboxNew York – Future Facilities has announced a new addition to its 6SigmaDC data center design and operations software suite. Designated 6SigmaRoomLite, the new module meets the need for a high quality, low-cost, and easy-to-use data center simulation tool. The software offers a clear and accurate view of conceptual design and environmental issues in critical facilities and data centers.

“We developed 6SigmaRoomLite in response to our customer’s requests for a less feature-rich and less complex application to provide a more immediate CFD analysis of data center space,” said Hassan Moezzi, CEO, Future Facilities. “We wanted even those unfamiliar with Computational Fluid Dynamics to be able to make accurate visualizations of data facilities with a minimum of training.” Read more
