Optimizing Data Center Management for K-12 School Districts with Automated Logic's WebCTRL System and Nlyte Software
Published on April 13, 2023,
Integrated Data Center Management (IDCM) is a powerful tool that enables K-12 school districts to manage their data centers more efficiently. By using Nlyte Software and Automated Logic's WebCTRL system, school districts can integrate systems, from buildings to servers to applications, to provide greater efficiency, streamlined management and improved insight, unifying the data center ecosystem. In this article, we will explore the advantages of using these two systems for IDCM in K-12 school districts.
Automated Logic's WebCTRL system is a building automation system (BAS) that provides real-time monitoring and control of HVAC systems, lighting, and other building systems. It can also integrate with Nlyte Software to provide a complete IDCM solution for K-12 school districts. By using Automated Logic's WebCTRL system with Nlyte Software, school districts can further enhance the benefits of IDCM.
Nlyte Software, a Carrier company, is a comprehensive data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solution that provides real-time monitoring and management of all components in a data center. It enables school districts to better manage their data centers by providing insights into power usage, asset inventory, space utilization, and more. Nlyte Software can integrate with Automated Logic's WebCTRL system to provide a complete IDCM solution for K-12 school districts.
Here are some of the benefits of using the Nlyte Software and WebCTRL system IDCM solution in K-12 school districts:
Improved energy efficiency
School districts can improve energy efficiency in their data centers and buildings. They can monitor power usage and adjust HVAC systems and lighting to optimize energy usage. This contributes to sustainability efforts by reducing the overall environmental impact of the district.
The system delivers real-time monitoring and management of all components in a data center and building. This can help to ensure that systems are operating at optimal levels, which can lead to improved performance.
Better resource utilization
School districts can better utilize their resources. They can monitor and manage assets, space utilization, and energy usage to ensure that resources are used efficiently.
School districts can simplify the management of their data centers and buildings. They can use a single interface to manage all components, which can save time and resources.
The Nlyte Software and WebCTRL system IDCM solution is highly scalable, which means that they can grow and adapt to meet the changing needs of a school district. This can help to ensure that the data center and building can accommodate future growth and expansion.
Renewable energy integration
The Nlyte Software and WebCTRL system IDCM solution can also integrate with renewable energy sources, such as solar or wind power, to further enhance sustainability efforts. By using renewable energy sources, school districts can reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable future.
In conclusion, the Nlyte Software and WebCTRL system IDCM solution enable the sharing detailed information between cooling/power systems and servers/workloads that run within data centers. By implementing an IDCM solution using Nlyte Software and Automated Logic's WebCTRL system, K-12 school districts can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their data centers and buildings, which can ultimately benefit their students and staff.
DCIM stands for Data Center Infrastructure Management. The software solution provides centralized management and monitoring of a data center’s IT and physical infrastructure. DCIM allows data center operators to monitor, analyze, and manage various aspects of the infrastructure, including power and cooling systems, server utilization, capacity planning, and environmental conditions. DCIM provides a holistic view of the data center’s performance and helps operators make informed decisions on optimizing energy efficiency, reducing waste, and ensuring business continuity. The software typically includes real-time monitoring, reporting, and analysis tools and automation and integration capabilities with other data center systems. DCIM is an essential tool for managing modern data centers that are becoming increasingly complex and demanding regarding energy efficiency, reliability, and sustainability.
