Data Center Performance Management Leader Nlyte Software Receives 2009 SmartGrid Product of the Year

Nlyte DCPM Suite Honored for Outstanding Innovation

MENLO PARK, California, Feb. 12, 2010 — nlyte Software, the leader in Data Center Performance Management (DCPM) solutions, today announced that nlyte 5.2 has received a 2009 Product of the Year Award from Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) and Intelligent Communications Partners.

The nlyte 5.2 DCPM solution is based on a set of best practice processes encapsulated in the DCPM Process Cycle. This Process Cycle uses six steps (DiscoverVisualizeModelControlReport and Predict) to automatically discover data center assets, visualize where the assets are, model and control changes, report on the results and predict future capacities.

Today, data centers are far more complex and difficult to manage than ever before.  Also, there is increasing concern over the rising cost of energy balanced with the desire to reduce the carbon footprint.  The nlyte DCPM suite brings simplicity to these challenges by enabling organizations to translate strategies into plans, monitor execution, and provide insight to optimize resources, and thereby improve financial and operational performance.

“We are honored to be recipient of this distinguished Product of the Year award ,” said Jon Temple, President and CEO of nlyte Software. “In an era of increasing global attention to the cost of energy, our DCPM suite utilizes extensive modeling to assess the impact of data center changes on power consumption, cooling and space – all before the change is made. This allows our customers to both contribute to their companies’ bottom line and to improve the quality of the environment. We are proud to be recognized for this innovation.”

With its fully integrated and fully functional DCPM solution, nlyte allows enterprises to:

  • make informed forecasting decisions for the planning and effective management of data center assets and physical infrastructure;
  • recover lost server capacity by detecting abandoned servers and reassigning work;
  • model the effects of changes and green IT initiatives on the data center’s Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) before committing resources to support the change; and,
  • reduce power consumption by reassigning and decommissioning servers. is pleased to grant a 2009 Product of the Year Award to nlyte Software for their nlyte 5.2 Data Center Performance Management suite. nlyte Software has proven they are committed to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC.  “We’re proud to honor their accomplishments in the advancement of the smart grid technologies.”
