Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) Leader Nlyte Software Demonstrates Continued Strong Market Momentum

Superior Execution, Strategic Partnerships and Global Expansion Makes Nlyte Software the Company to Watch in the DCIM Space

Menlo Park, CA – August 24, 2010 – nlyte Software, the only provider of performance-based solutions for Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM), today announced strong company momentum for the 6 months ending June 30th, 2010. Accelerated customer acquisition, global partnerships, product innovation and market expansion are the cornerstones of nlyte Software’s recent success in the DCIM market.

“Our strong first half year results were driven primarily by customers who increasingly realize that DCIM solutions are the best way to reduce data center operating expenses,” said Jon Temple, nlyte Software president and CEO. “With tough economic times still upon us, we are delighted to achieve such strong growth while providing significant value to organizations who feel the pressure to drive down energy consumption, and improve operational efficiencies across their data centers.”

“By using nlyte, the planning time for data center migrations has been reduced by 20 -25% and consequently we are already attracting more business by being able to offer our customers superior cost and time savings,” said Tony Creech, Director – PMO, ITIL, Data Center Relocations & Energy Efficiency Consulting, Consonus.

nlyte Software highlights for the first six months include:

  • A 36% increase in the number of new customers globally.
  • Launching nlyte 5.3, which takes the company’s leading power management capabilities to the next level by helping today’s largest data center operations reign in rapidly increasing energy costs and enabling a greener data center. New features include end-to-end power mapping, automated power load algorithms, and comprehensive modeling capabilities.
  • Continued validation by leading industry analysts:
  • Adding additional key strategic partnerships, including:
    • BMC: nlyte Software signed a worldwide reseller agreement with BMC Software, the leader in Business Service Management, making nlyte available globally directly through both BMC Software and BMC channel partners.

    • VMware: nlyte Software joined the VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program. The nlyte integration with vCenter enables enterprises to manage the VMware virtualized environment in the same way they do their other data center assets and physical infrastructure, allowing data center managers a single view across an entire infrastructure saving time and simplifying management.
