FNT and Future Facilities have announced a partnership which claims it will improve capacity management and use predictive analytics to optimize asset utilization in high-traffic areas.

The partnership said the challenge for data center operators and network managers is to efficiently deploy all data center assets to handle increasing loads and said the solution lies within planning with predictive analysis and prognosis of network, server, load, power and cooling capacities.

FNT said its command software supports operational processes within the data center and provides operators with transparency on all assets.

The companies said by integrating FNT Command with 6SigmaDC from Future Facilities, it will be possible to continuously model the impact that data center changes will have on server availability, capacity and cooling efficiency (ACE).

The pair also state users can simulate and optimize changes in infrastructure before implementation while also identifying unused capacity.

The alliance said heat flows and air circulation can be visualized to reveal potential reductions in cooling costs and eliminate hotspots.
