The ACE Assessment starts with the creation of a Predictive Model (Virtual Facility) of the data center using 6SigmaDC software. The Virtual Facility is then used to calculate the following performance indicators: Availability: % of existing connected IT load that will always be available under what if power and cooling failure conditions Capacity: % of the design IT load that can be achieved by adding to the present day layout Efficiency: The effectiveness of airflow and temperature delivery (compared to ASHRAE standards)
ACE is the only service available that allows operators to visually plot their 'performance gap' - the difference between maximum design potential and real-world operational potential. The ACE Service also pinpoints potential improvements to close the performance gap.
"We developed ACE as a new way to assess and visualize the performance state of the data center and to help the operator get to where they need to go to close the 'performance gap,'" said
In 2011, using the tools of the ACE Assessment Service, Future Facilities was able to help a global investment bank increase availability to 100%, reclaim 350Kw of lost capacity, and realize a 15% drop in PUE.
