Nlyte Accelerates Momentum, Strengthening Global Market Leadership in DCIM for Strong 2014

Company Enables Enterprises to Defer More Than $1 Billion in Data Center Costs Through Greater Efficiency and Optimization of Resources

SAN MATEO, Calif. – February 25, 2015 Nlyte Software, the world’s leading software company developing solutions for automating the management of data center infrastructure, solidified its leadership in the global data center infrastructure management (DCIM) market during the past year, saving its customers over $1 billion of capital and operations costs, growing its installed base and expanding channel partnerships around the world.

“Data center operators are realizing that the simple addition of more equipment isn’t sufficient to address their strategic growth and the greater demand for IT services,” said Doug Sabella, president and CEO of Nlyte Software. “They need to work smarter, driving greater efficiency and cost savings through optimization of their existing resources. The measurable benefits of using our DCIM solution have resulted in Nlyte being recognized for its market leadership and greater adoption of our tools in data centers of all sizes around the world.”

In September 2014, Nlyte was recognized by Gartner as a leader in the first-ever Magic Quadrant for Data Center Infrastructure Management Tools report. Later in the year, the company’s solution received the highest scores in Gartner’s “Critical Capabilities for Data Center Infrastructure Management Solutions Report” for large enterprise, managed service provider and mid-sized enterprise categories. And to help better educate the market, Nlyte kicked off 2015 by releasing the “DCIM for Dummies” reference book. Underscoring this market leadership, Nlyte’s solutions continued to gain wider adoption with financial, Internet, healthcare, technology and government organizations.
