WASHINGTON, Aug. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- International Data Center Authority (IDCA) was hosted by LinkedIn at its Eastern Region Data Centers during IDCA's quarterly summit. This announcement comes after the key IDCA members concluded their visit to LinkedIn's data center.
IDCA Chairman Mehdi Paryavi said, "Our visit to LinkedIn data centers was a significant reassurance to the viability of everyone's vested efforts. All professionals, including application, IT, telecom and data center specialists, from beginner to seasoned, deal with LinkedIn professionally on a daily basis. Knowing how a prime social media network that deals with your professional life runs its application across a resilient topology of diverse data center nodes nationwide and beyond, so that you will have a seamless end-user experience, is key in the application ecosystem IDCA is defining for this industry."
Steve Hambruch, Chairman of the IDCA Technical Standards Committee, said, "This visit was fundamental in my view and it once again validated what we do. By adopting the IDCA standards, commercial data centers operators can now provide to their customers a grading, a scale, and a score of their own capability to serve within the customers Application Ecosystem. It's finally the first opportunity for the customer to incorporate the neutral grading of the data center operators capabilities into their own Application Ecosystem scoring and measure it against their own internal data center operations efficiencies. So for the first time we will have a level playing field to measure both."
"This tour was effective because we all, as professionals, deal with LinkedIn on a daily basis and people wonder how does the world's #1 professional social media network that keeps all of us in touch with one another run such a robust application ecosystem and infrastructure that gives us the delivery that experience. So we brought in that expertise and that edge into IDCA's Technical Standards Committee and incorporated LinkedIn's advantages into what we do. At the same time we were able to feedback our ideas, expertise and our comprehensive long-term and short-term advices to LinkedIn. So this works very well for everybody," noted Dikran Kechichian of TechXact Group and Member of the IDCA Technical Standards Committee.
"It is through this unique collaboration of ideas and perspectives that the IDCA provides that our industry will be able to grow and move forward with a clear path into the future. I'm excited for the next summit to build upon what we have already accomplished and learn more from all of the other member organizations," Eric Wendorf concluded.
