Future Facilities and nlyte Software Provide Fully Integrated DCIM and CFD Software Solution &
Integrated nlyte and 6SigmaFM enables engineering and IT operations to manage the data center as a team OperationsFacilities Power Cooling Space Engineering Simulation nlyte6SigmaFM Network Any plans made in nlyte can be simulated in 6SigmaFM. The consequences of the deployment are fed back into nlyte before deployment.
Overview: Recent developments in data centre management software Await thermal outcome, troubleshoot reactively ITFM 1) Traditional approach Space, Power and Network availability checked independently, cooling not checked. Lack of localized cooling causes hotspots and results in stranded capacity. 2) Future Facilities pioneers simulation software for DC Facility Managers Causes of hot spots can be simulated, visualised and fixed retrospectively. 2) nlyte pioneers Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software Unified management of Space, Power and Network capacity 3) nlyte and Future Facilities integrate DCIM and simulation tools Adds available Cooling into capacity planning and provisioning process. IT can see implications of deployments on the cooling available in other cabinets Potential hot spots are identified and avoided before deployment. Proactive airflow management reclaims stranded cooling capacity.
1) Traditional Approach to provisioning (without nlyte or 6SigmaFM) Change Management Process Await thermal outcome, troubleshoot reactively Check cabinet availability independently Facilities Space Report Power Report Network Report Cooling Report ? Space, Power and Network availability are checked independently in provisioning process, cooling not checked at all. Operations
2) DCIM and CFD used independently Power Space Change Management Process DCIM Report Engineering Simulation OperationsFacilities DCIM streamlines provisioning process and provides capacity management CFD enables airflow and cooling management but it is done retrospectively CFD Await thermal outcome, troubleshoot reactively Network

Typical everyday Process: Deployment Within Limits More Flexibility: Pushing the Limits Understanding Consequences: Resetting Cooling Limits Typical process using integrated nlyte and 6SigmaFM The cooling limits set by CFD simulation are available in nlyte to be used in management and planning. Engineering does not need to be involved directly in provisioning, but nlyte gets the benefits of CFD simulation. Flexibility to plan Move, Add or Change knowing that it that will break cooling limits. Engineering simulation is used to find a solution that meets IT cooling requirements and operational objectives. IT equipment changes alter cooling limits because they effect airflow patterns and local temperatures. Engineering simulation continually updates cabinet cooling limits so nlyte users work with the latest cooling information. nlyte6SigmaFM nlyte6SigmaFM nlyte6SigmaFM
