PNC Financial Services, with revenues in excess of $16 billion and 54,000 employees, was seeking a way to improve their data center processes, reduce risk, become more proactive and gain the ability to forecast capacity for moves, prospective consolidations and changes within their data center environment.
With more than $250 billion in assets, PNC is one of the largest financial services firms in the country. But they were managing their infrastructure using spreadsheets and other inefficient, manual methods, leading to inaccurate asset tracking. With Nlyte, planning became proactive, and nearly 500 orphaned servers were identified and retired, resulting in rapid ROI. “With Nlyte, we not only freed up half a megawatt of power, but also extended the life of our data center from five to 15 years.”
