Nlyte Software Named ‘Cool Vendor’ in Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) by Leading Analyst Firm

Menlo Park, CA – May 2, 2011 – nlyte Software, the only provider of performance-based solutions for Data Center Infrastructure Management, today announced the company has been included in the list of “Cool Vendors” in the Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) Tools, 20111 report by Jay E. Pultz, Jeffrey Hewitt, David J. Cappuccio and Rakesh Kumar of Gartner, Inc.

According to Gartner, “Data center managers recognize that power and cooling represent major challenges — but, as yet, most do not have a good grasp on the severity of their problems or their effective management.” They recommend companies “evaluate and pilot test DCIM tools and implement DCIM in the highest power density areas of your data center.” Gartner went on to say, “DCIM is likely to be ‘self-funding’ – the cost of tools is likely to be offset by the savings in power costs that DCIM helps enable.”

“We help our customers every day reduce their energy expenses and run their data centers more efficiently,” said Jon Temple, nlyte Software President and CEO. “We are honored to be acknowledged by Gartner for our contribution to the maturing DCIM category and consider the inclusion of nlyte Software in the Cool Vendor report as further affirmation of our vision which is to enable an environmentally responsible world one data center at a time.”
