Is it possible to improve the management and control of data center resources in remote IT locations? The simple answer is, “yes”! Nlyte Edge is making it possible and setting a new standard for Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) and reporting of data center assets in distributed locations.
This is especially important as edge computing performance continues to be a critical issue with organizations expanding their use of the IT edge to minimize application latency for customers. Nlyte Edge gives organizations the visibility to incorporate edge asset management into the same current best practices for controlling internal resources.
Nlyte Edge includes our recently introduced Nlyte Command Center capabilities and enables IT and facilities managers to visualize, manage, and report on infrastructure assets across and outside the extended enterprise – both critical and noncritical systems.
In addition, Nlyte Edge also provides drill-down visualization and reporting capabilities across the various data center layers including: operations, capacity planning, and asset/change management. Using a detailed global map, IT and facility personnel can now quickly view locations, space and power usage effectiveness while also managing:
- Data rooms / data closets and their respective devices.
- Assets in remote retail branch locations.
- CRAC units, PDU’s, BMS, EMS, Energy Infrastructure and other sensors.
- Office lighting, cooling, power, communications closet rooms, power and cooling.
Finally, with Nlyte Edge, data center operators can more efficiently use devices through better planning while automating change audit logs across the extended enterprise. This process allows facility managers to increase their productivity while improving security by identifying unplanned changes of remote assets.
