Data center management include facility management and IT management. In recently years, a new perspective and trend is building up to integrate/converge facilities and IT operation management together, to achieve better productivity, availability, and sustainability. In this session we will share our experience on how to manage more than 32000+ servers plus 9000+ network devices in our datacenter and the effort we did on integrate the facility management and IT operation management together. We have roughly 6 different facility management systems. Meanwhile on the IT side we have different systems which is owned by different BU.

We benefit a lot from it and now we have opensource it on GitHub https://github.com/vmware/flowgate In this session we will also share the detail architecture design of the system and the lessons we learned.
