First used within CA Technologies, CA ecoSoftware solution is now helping to improve sustainability at corporations throughout the world.
We created these products using some of our strongest existing technologies as a foundation. We then innovated to meet key needs in four areas:
CA ecoSoftware capabilities are delivered through two integrated parts:
CA ecoMeter helps visualize, monitor and report on energy use in data centers and across facilities. It captures detailed real-time data to measure performance, identify trends and issue alerts, as well as to help take action to better use capacity, enhance reliability and performance and make ongoing improvements.
CA ecoGovernance is sustainability management software that helps companies measure, manage and report their impacts associated with energy, carbon, water and waste. It helps them make more effective decisions, take action and pursue a systematic, governed approach to environmental initiatives.
Customer — Lockheed Martin, U.S.
Lockheed Martin is a global security company and information technology provider. Its new NexGen Cyber Innovation and Technology Center houses a state-of-the-art data center in the Washington, D.C. area, which is used to showcase technological innovation as well as to provide a range of IT services. The data center staff needs to be able to track power consumption historically and in real-time. They also need to monitor overall system health and issue automatic alerts in the event of power-related alarm conditions, in order to support unattended operation.
Lockheed Martin implemented CA ecoSoftware in its NexGen data center as one of its tools to monitor the energy consumed by a range of devices, including those responsible for IT, power supply and cooling. These include UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply), PDU (Power Distribution Unit) and CRAC (Computer Room Air Conditioner) systems. Dashboards provide both aggregated information and drill-down detail about current, voltage and energy consumption, PUE, power and phase load. Intelligent alerts are set up to notify staff in the event of adverse conditions.
Lockheed Martin has simplified energy management, helped improve staff efficiency, and transformed the approach to power in the NexGen data center. Added benefits include:
