CA Technologies to work with Facebook

CA Technologies has announced that Facebook is using CA DCIM (CA Data Center Infrastructure Management) software to improve power efficiency in global datacenters.

Facebook conducted an intensive DCIM vendor review process. CA was one of a dozen considered and completed a proof-of-concept, followed by a more extensive pilot in a 100,000-square-foot data center.

Upon completion of the pilot, Facebook worked with CA to create a custom solution to deliver on the energy-related DCIM requirements today and in the future, in terms of technology innovation and CA’s ability to execute with speed and scalability, as well as working together to adjust and fine-tune associated business objectives.

“We are on a mission to help connect the world, and our IT infrastructure is core to our success,” said Tom Furlong, VP, Infrastructure Data Centers, Facebook.

“We are continually looking at ways to optimize our data centers and bringing all of our energy-related information together in one spot was a core requirement,” said Furlong.

“Every single day, 728 million people actively use Facebook and expectations around quality of service, availability and reliability are extremely high,” said Terrence Clark, senior vice president, Infrastructure Management, CA Technologies.

“This places significant demands on the IT infrastructure with little room for error or costly inefficiencies. As a result, it is a top priority for Facebook’s IT and facilities teams to know as much as they can about how their infrastructure is performing from a power and cooling standpoint, where potential problems might lie with energy-related systems and where there are opportunities for associated cost savings,” added Clark.

“Facebook’s IT team can now bring this energy-related data into their broader DCIM system for an even more complete view of overall system status. They can then analyze all of the data in aggregate to make decisions to improve efficiency and reduce costs, while delivering a seamless customer experience and creating new opportunities for innovation,” added Clark.
