ORLANDO, USA: CA Technologies and RagingWire Data Centers, a data center provider, announced that the two companies are working together to implement key elements of CA Technologies CA DCIM (data center infrastructure management) solution as part of RagingWire's industry N-MatrixTM DCIM system.


N-Matrix is RagingWire's proprietary software which integrates more than 20 infrastructure management applications and presents detailed power and security reports to customers via an interactive online portal, an announcement explained.

The companies are working together to tailor, integrate, and leverage the monitoring, analysis, asset management, and 3D visualization capabilities of CA DCIM to support RagingWire's data centers in Ashburn, Virginia and Sacramento, California. The result, as claimed, will be a sophisticated software management platform with real-time data collection across multiple infrastructure systems, extensive analysis and reporting, and holistic facility power, cooling, and bandwidth utilization visualizations.

The enhanced N-Matrix system is said to then deliver operational transparency and create additional value for RagingWire clients who will have access to the system for no incremental charge.


"While many other data center providers are still formulating their DCIM strategies, RagingWire is already delivering concrete benefits and added value to customers with the N-Matrix DCIM system it has running in production today," said Terrence Clark, senior vice president, infrastructure management, CA Technologies. "By making the CA DCIM solution a core element of their N-Matrix system, RagingWire is both validating our industry leadership in DCIM and raising the bar for performance and transparency in the data center services market."

RagingWire operates 650,000 square feet of data center facilities in California and Virginia. The colocation provider says it has a unique patented design which allows it to move live power loads throughout the data center to meet customer needs. RagingWire adds it offers a 100 per cent uptime service level agreement (SLA) to its customers even during maintenance windows, one of the only data center companies to do so.

"The data center industry has been criticized for a lack of transparency regarding data center environmental conditions, bandwidth, and power utilization. RagingWire is changing that," said William Dougherty, vice president of information technology at RagingWire. "We vetted a large number of solution providers in our search for a DCIM solution that met our objectives of excellent customer experience and integrated deep-dive data analysis capabilities. CA Technologies was the provider that stood out to us with respect to our specifications."
