World's Largest Pure-Play Cloud Infrastructure Provider Anticipates 10-15 Percent Operational Savings with Modius OpenData®

PR Newswire

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Modius Inc. today announced that GoGrid, the world's largest pure-play provider of cloud-based infrastructure as a service, has deployed the Modius OpenData® infrastructure management solution and expects to reduce its operational costs 10 to 15 percent.

GoGrid operates three data centers in San Francisco, along with centers in Ashburn, Va., and soon in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. GoGrid offers hosted private- and public-cloud products to thousands of customers worldwide.

"When we had one location, it was easy to monitor everything," said GoGrid Vice President of Operations Bobby Brown, "but now our data centers are global, and we rely on Modius OpenData to furnish the insight we need for making rapid and effective facility management decisions."

For GoGrid, OpenData will optimize and normalize operational information from a wide array of equipment in its data centers, relaying that information to a new network operations center (NOC) at GoGrid's San Francisco headquarters. GoGrid will be monitoring thousands of data points through OpenData dashboards and reports that any authorized employee can access.

"Our goal is to have a single pane of glass in the NOC to monitor trending information regarding all our energy resources for all our centers," Brown said. "OpenData provides a unified view and dashboard to alert us to any issues at any critical points in our data centers. It's helping us grow and save labor costs, with a much higher level of actionable operational intelligence."

Modius helps companies worldwide reduce service interruptions. "We enable data centers to gain data-driven operational intelligence and save time and cost," said Modius CEO Craig Compiano, "all while bolstering the customer's reputation for service."
