Consonus Partners with Nlyte Software to Expand Their Data Center Migration Capabilities

Partnership Gives Consonus the Power to Leverage Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) to Help Optimize Power, Cooling and Space in a Range of Data Center Initiatives

Menlo Park, CA – September 14, 2010 – nlyte Software, the only provider of performance-based solutions for Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM), today announced that Consonus, a leading national provider of Data Center hosting, colocation, Managed IT Services, IT Infrastructure, and IT Consulting solutions, has selected nlyte as a key technology within their data center practice.

After an extensive search, Consonus initially selected nlyte specifically to facilitate the planning and execution of data center migration projects. Once a migration project is completed, Consonus will also offer nlyte directly to its customers for the on-going management of their data centers enabling the optimization of power, cooling and space through intelligent capacity planning.

“There is nothing more powerful than sitting down with a customer and showing them a data-driven visual model of their data center that highlights what assets they have, where they are located, along with all the important operational metrics,” said Tony Creech, Director – PMO, ITIL, Data Center Relocations & Energy Efficiency Consulting, Consonus Technologies, Inc.  “Before we used nlyte, state-of-the-art meant using static Excel spreadsheets and Visio diagrams.”

Creech continued: “We are excited about the partnership.  The sophisticated modeling capabilities that nlyte offers helps us avoid the classic over provisioning of IT assets that has plagued these type of projects in the past and overall we find that the planning time for data center migrations is reduced by 20 -25%.”

“I’m delighted to welcome Consonus into the nlyte Software partner program, and thrilled to see the dramatic difference that our DCIM capabilities are making to the success of their migration projects,” said Jon Temple, President and CEO of nlyte Software. “These type of partnerships are extremely important in helping the broader data center community more rapidly benefit from the cost savings and efficiency gains that nlyte can provide.”
