Nlyte announced Wednesday the availability of a new software module for its data center platforms, which provides one screen for facility managers to visualize, manage, control, and report on the entire IT infrastructure.
“Is it possible to improve the management and control of data center resources in remote IT locations? The simple answer is, ‘yes!’ ” Mark Gaydos, chief marketing officer of Nlyte, said in a blog post. “Nlyte Edge is making it possible and setting a new standard for [Data Center Infrastructure Management] and reporting of data center assets in distributed locations.”
What does the future hold for data center optimization? Government leaders from GAO, State, and other departments will explore the progress made at the 2017 Data Center Brainstorm on March 23 at the Newseum in Washington, D.C.
Nlyte Edge offers visualization and reporting capabilities across the various data center layers including operations, capacity management, power management, and asset and change management. Nlyte Edge provides a map that enables IT managers to view locations, space and power usage while also managing their distributed locations.
“This is especially important as computing performance continues to be a critical issue with organizations expanding their use of the IT edge to minimize application latency for customers,” Gaydos said.
Nlyte works with about 30 Federal agencies to ensure that they meet the Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) standards, which were introduced by the Office of Management and Budget last year. The DCOI requires Federal agencies to report on their efforts to reach specific data center optimization targets. Nlyte added the DCOI module onto its Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) Solution to assist agencies in meeting the targets in the DCOI.
Agency IT leaders need to be able to better manage all of their data as the shift to cut down on large data centers continues.
“This shift is being driven by IoT demands and will become an increasingly important part of a CIO’s service delivery strategy and that can only be successful if it is implemented with strong management systems,” said Doug Sabella, CEO and president of Nlyte. “Nlyte Edge gives these organizations the visibility and control to successfully and efficiently move their IT assets close to their customers without giving up control, efficiency or performance.”
