Global DataCenter Management has launched an upgraded version 2 of its Nlyte software, designed to improve environmental management and performance.
Logistics and express delivery firm DHL is believed to be using Nlyte at its global datacentre hub in Prague. It is also used by public sector organisations and in the financial services industry.
The Nlyte datacentre management tool is designed to provide a transparent view of datacentre resources through a single online application. It carries out a physical audit of hardware and the configuration management database (CMDB), creating a virtual map of the datacentre.
The software automatically optimises the datacentre for space, cooling and power provision to increase efficiency. It uses analytics technology from Flometrics to monitor and provide advice on managing temperatures and airflow.
Nlyte, created by former datacentre managers at the UBS Investment bank, is designed to reduce fragmentation by 15% over the life of the datacentre and reduce outage time.
