nlyte Data Center Infrastructure Management

btn_download btn_video btn_contact

Data Center Infrastructure Management is the ability to gain insight and drive performance throughout the data center including data center assets and physical infrastructure. nlyte_03The nlyte solution enables organizations to translate strategies into plans, monitor execution, and provide insight to improve financial and operational performance.

The nlyte suite creates a complete data center management environment for improved business agility – From the point you set your goals through the discovery of what you have, visualizing where your assets are, modeling and controlling changes, reporting on the results and finally predicting your future — The nlyte suite gives you the insights and tools you need to connect these processes, keep a steady pulse on your data center, optimize resources and improve business performance.

We designed nlyte from the ground-up to address real-world data center problems and we enable data center managers to continuously improve the performance of their facilities by using nlyte to envoke a series of processes we call the Data Center Performance Management (DCPM) Process Cycle. The DCPM Process Cycle uses six steps to help data center personnel get control of their data centers and make informed decisions for the planning and effective management of their IT assets and infrastructure.

The six DCPM Process Cycle Steps are described below:

Avocent Trellis™ Data Center Infrastructure Management Platform

btn_contact btn_video

The Trellis platform will enable centralized monitoring, management, and capacity planning for data center infrastructure management.

The days of limited views into your critical domains are ending.

Trellis-infrastructure-management-showcaseTapping a technology portfolio of unprecedented depth, Emerson Network Power has created the Trellis platform. This industry-changing new platform, comprised of a family of hardware, software and services, is founded on the vision of effectively erasing the lines between once isolated infrastructure components within the data center. With the goal of achieving a true, single-pane, contextualized, real-time view of data center physical infrastructure, we are building on the significant experience and data center infrastructure management (DCIM) capabilities already available from Emerson Network Power–from the Liebert cooling, power and monitoring solutions to the server firmware, control and data center management solutions from Avocent and Aperture. We are also committing tremendous resources to bringing the new Trellis platform of products and solutions to market. Together, these will create an unprecedented, dynamic infrastructure optimization platform that embraces the interdependencies between the physical and logical layers. The Trellis platform will enable centralized monitoring, management and capacity planning like never seen before.

The Trellis platform is a new way of thinking. A new way of operating. A new way of approaching successful growth and change.

Creating the first holistic DCIM platform for hardware, software and services.

Why Now?

No one can be truly satisfied with the current state of data center management. A 2009 Gartner study found that data centers have, on average, 40% to 60% of unutilized, wasted server rack space and energy use at just 70% of nameplate rating. In today’s hyper-competitive business environment, there’s no excuse for that. Just as there’s no longer a place for the old, inefficient, inflexible and tunnel-vision way of running things.

THE TIME HAS COME FOR THE TRELLIS PLATFORM

It’s a radical shift in how organizations approach their infrastructure. Change is now the driving force behind IT. Scale up. Scale down. Virtualize. Increase density. Shift load. And, only the organization that can be instantly flexible with utter confidence will thrive. Now add in the increasing pressure to control operating costs at the same time. This is the inspiration behind the Trellis platform. Its interconnected components will provide unflinching visibility into all parts of the infrastructure. It will end the “compartmentalized decision-making” of siloed operations. It will close the gap between IT and facilities, enabling holistic, real-time management for peak optimization.
