Facebook Taps CA Technologies for Hyperscale DCIM
SAN JOSE, Calif. – Facebook once contemplated building its own software to manage its massive data center infrastructure. But after a lengthy review of its options, the company has opted to use software from CA Technologies to track and manage its data center capacity. The announcement is a significant win for CA, which beat out a dozen companies for the high-profile deal. Facebook will use CA Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software to bring together millions of energy-related data points from physical and IT resources in its global data centers to improve power efficiency.
