Ericsson to use cloud to tap into data centre resources

Ericsson's Cloud System to transform data centre resources.

By CBR Staff Writer

Ericsson and ABB, a power and automation technology engineer, have joined forces as they seek to transform how data centre resources are architected, optimised and managed.

The Ericsson Cloud System will be integrated with ABB’s Decathlon data centre infrastructure management system (DCIM). The combined solution will enable one end-to-end view and management of total facility and equipment operations.

Ericsson says that customer benefits include energy and maintenance savings at the same time as improved reliability and performance.

Data centre operators will gain the opportunity to automate and govern operations across not only compute, storage, network hardware and software, but also power, cooling and other IT management systems. This fully integrated solution is designed to significantly improve ease of use, efficiency and sustainability.

"As the data centre market matures, owners and operators are starting to demand the same control and automation capabilities common to other complex, mission-critical environments," said Peter Terwiesch, President, Process Automation, ABB.

"Our alliance with Ericsson extends the automation of physical, mechanical and electrical infrastructure right to the heart of IT workload management. It will provide the technology for data centre and cloud operators to optimize IT workloads, saving operating costs while improving reliability and the performance of their data centres," Terwiesch added.

Cloud networking has developed rapidly over the past several years being adopted by those who appreciate its faster data delivery, improved application performance and increased operational efficiencies for mission-critical workloads.
