White Paper

Data Center Hosting Services for Secure Federal Agencies

Nlyte is the leading platform acknowledged by the largest and most sophisticated organizations and analysts for its hardened architecture, hyper scalability, intelligent data engine, and automated functionality. Over 40 Federal agencies spanning Public, DoD, and Intel organizations have adopted Nlyte to manage their data centers and meet compliance mandates, including DCOI, Cloud First, and Application Rationalization.

This whitepaper will look at a few of the challenges facing many agency’s IT teams providing multi-tenant support across a range of secure and nonsecure groups. The first challenge that will be reviewed is regarding “chargeback and utilization” tracking at the most granular level. The second will be for the need of a secure architecture that can collect infrastructure operating data across secure to Top Secret environments to aggregate management date in a meaningful and useful manner. Additionally, there is a need to share or integrate the operating management data with other systems, thus driving the need for a single source of truth that updates all business intelligence systems.

Nlyte's DCIM software features set is used by Federal Agencies and public colocation providers to manage secure tenant environments. The feature sets in the DCIM suite include automated lifecycle management, capacity planning, resource reservation, and tracking, power, and cooling management, and automated workflow. It provides secure management for the tenant and collective oversight for the hosting organization.
