Nlyte Software has announced the release of Nlyte System Utilization Monitoring – N-SUM. The new product is a highly scalable monitoring solution that captures detailed server and CPU utilization information. This data combined with real-time power/cooling, server and virtualization information delivered within Nlyte’s Platinum edition delivers a proactive real-time view of an enterprise’s data center infrastructure health.
As part of the Nlyte portfolio of DCIM products, N-SUM expands Nlyte’s agentless real-time monitoring capabilities to capture real time server and CPU utilization information. The new solution grows DCIM’s value by polling tens of thousands of servers to produce detailed reports showing utilization and connection data at the global, site room and rack level. Additionally, the solution is capable of identifying “ghost servers” that are idly consuming resources but have no business function. IT and facility personnel can now use one comprehensive solution to view the health of data center infrastructure, better balance IT workloads, optimize energy consumption of IT assets and identify overloaded or underutilized servers.
“It’s important for all IT and facility managers to have a comprehensive view of all critical data points affecting infrastructure performance,” said Robert Neave, Co-Founder, Chief Technology Officer and VP of Product Management, Nlyte Software. “With the addition of N-SUM, Nlyte is empowering all infrastructure managers to leverage a comprehensive set of data to better eliminate waste, increase uptime, and ultimately meet or exceed their SLA objectives.”
Nlyte’s N-SUM product, combined with the Nlyte Platinum solution provides an enterprise with the ability to view its data center infrastructure as a seamless inter-related fabric in which real- time facilities’ data can be analyzed in parallel with real-time IT equipment and workload data. The knowledge captured can be used to better plan, optimize and transform an enterprise’s data center(s) and ensure that not only is a data center being operated efficiently but also that trends are quickly spotted and addressed thus minimizing overall risk.
“For DCIM to ensure IT infrastructure is operated cost effectively and with maximum uptime, assets, resources and people must all be managed holistically and to do this you must be able to capture and manage disparate types of data,” said Doug Sabella, CEO and president, Nlyte Software. “Nlyte has always had a strong focus on data and in enabling organizations to leverage it effectively. The introduction of N-SUM bolsters this core capability and is one of many upcoming planned Nlyte releases that will enable organizations to further harness the power of data.”
