Washington D.C., April 25 2017: International Data Center Authority (IDCA) today announces the release of Infinity Paradigm® AE360, the next-generation standards framework that is determined to restructure and revolutionize the world of information technology, data center, infrastructure, cloud, big data, applications and IoT.
“This is the exciting moment everyone has been waiting for. There is no limit as to how far this standards framework can take organizations and help them adapt to the modern requirements of our world today”, said Carlos Tavares, Member of the IDCA Board of Directors.
Mehdi Paryavi, the author of The Infinity Paradigm® stated, “It is great privilege and honor for us to build the pillars of the greatest industry mankind has ever created.” Paryavi continued, “The Infinity Paradigm® sets the foundation framework, upon which the modern era information industry will be built. Thus, oorganizations, both private and public, must adopt and adhere to the Infinity Paradigm’s revolutionizing disciplines in order to sustain digital growth and stay ahead of the curve.”
Todd Schreiber, Data Center Strategy & Architecture at Bloomberg, said “The caliber of people here is a fairly diverse group and definitely decision makers in the data center level and I am happy to be amongst them.” The event took place on Thursday and continued onto Friday where all attendees received complete briefing on the upcoming IDCA standards and were able to ask questions, provide their feedback and participate in workgroup discussions.
IDCA’s release of this standards framework document represents a dramatic step forward in the design, implementation, operations, and management of information technology systems and their supporting infrastructure. It is not simply an evolutionary advancement of IDCA’s Infinity Paradigm® concept, but is in fact a revolutionary advancement for the industry as a whole. A holistic, data driven, comprehensive evaluation toolset that meets the needs of the C-Suite as well as the staff engineer, the Infinity Paradigm® Standards Framework is the solution for effective management of any organization’s Application Ecosystem®.
The Infinity Paradigm® defines the Application Ecosystem℠ and the ingredients necessary to sustain the optimal ecosystem for the application delivery and business continuity. The paradigm defines application-centric methodologies and approach towards the planning, designing, implementation and operation of information technology, cloud and data center infrastructure. Dikran Kechichian, Member of IDCA’s Technical Standards Committee stated, “The Infinity Paradigm is the result of witnessing and understanding the historical trend of technology and industry evolution. You cannot cater to today’s fast-pace and dynamic business demands and requirements based on set of disciplines and understandings that were defined years ago. Such legacy understandings are the bottleneck for our industry’s evolution and progress today.” The Infinity Paradigm® bridges gaps and merges the potential synergies between information technology and facilities, physical infrastructure and virtual infrastructure, data center nodes and data center clouds, infrastructure and operations.
