Automated Logic, a provider of building automation systems, and Nlyte Software, a provider of Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software, have launched their Integrated Data Center Management (IDCM) solution for data centers.
The integration between the Automated Logic WebCTRL building automation system and Nlyte’s DCIM software can help data center owners/operators unlock additional energy savings, reduce costs and improve uptime in their data centers.
Automated Logic and Nlyte Software have built strong portfolios of data center clients over the past decades, and this collaboration would allow them to better serve those customers.
Automated Logic is a part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), a global provider of “innovative” heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.
“We constantly strive to increase the efficiency of data centers that are using our WebCTRL building automation system while also enabling our worldwide network of authorized dealers to offer more value to those end-customers,” said Mead Rusert, President, Automated Logic. “Automated Logic’s collaboration with Nlyte is enabling our teams to streamline processes throughout the data center, from the facilities to the servers and applications, for better efficiency and uptime.”
Data centers, unlike other building types, are strongly influenced by the dynamic behavior of the systems running within them, stated Automated Logic and Nlyte Software. Their new IDCM solution would integrate these numerous building systems, from cooling to monitoring to virtualization, to provide greater efficiency, streamlined management and improved insight into system performance.
Connecting the building automation system and DCIM software can provide increased efficiency of power, cooling and space by allowing infrastructure to adapt to application behavior. The solution would also allow personnel to better understand how application workloads are affected by future maintenance. Next to that, it can help improve how organizations respond to security or power anomalies.
“By collaborating with an innovative building management leader like Automated Logic, we are raising the bar together on what data center operators can do to increase efficiency and transparency across their operational processes,” said Enzo Greco, Chief Strategy Officer, Nlyte Software. “With the IDCM solution, Automated Logic provides unmatched management of the power chain, cooling chain and physical security elements, while Nlyte provides insight into the servers, switches, workloads and applications dependent on that physical infrastructure – with the ultimate benefit of being able to manage infrastructure based on the specific needs of varying application workloads.”
