SAN MATEO, Calif. & LONDON--()--Nlyte Software, the world's leading software company focused on the management and optimization of data centers, today announced the release of breakthrough Smart Blueprints™ technology that enables IT to create and share any portion of a data center’s designs. The Nlyte Smart Blueprints technology is in direct response to users’ requests for advanced intelligent provisioning. This new technology gives data center professionals unmatched flexibility to optimize hardware configurations, capture these comprehensive designs and easily reuse or share them with other users.

According to 451 Research, DCIM and associated management systems is becoming a fundamental management layer of the agile data center. “The adoption of DCIM software is becoming a priority for these data center professionals,” said Rhonda Ascierto, Senior Analyst at 451 Research. “They will likely view the Nlyte Smart Blueprints technology as a way to capture their best practices and collective knowledge to help their teams save time today and to make that knowledge reusable and accessible in the future.”

Nlyte Smart Blueprints enables the best practices for existing data center designs to be easily captured and leveraged for future projects. It ensures that organizations maximize the benefits of their expertise and compliance with corporate IT policies. This new technology can be used to capture comprehensive designs that include materials, configurations, connectivity information, and three-dimensional visual representations of blueprints - at any level of granularity.

Common designs for Nlyte Smart Blueprints are:

  • Highly configurable chassis-based devices which require individual blades, NICs and other modules
  • Fully contained or functional racks, e.g. compute, mail or storage services
  • Compilation of multiple functions that are individually housed in complete racks or rows
  • Replication of entire pod-level designs for dense computing or storage intensive applications

These Nlyte Smart Blueprints, which users can design and optimize, are ultimately saved as completely new composite material types. They can then be reused by the entire organization across the IT infrastructure, no matter how large or complex, like any other asset in the data center.

“Nlyte Smart Blueprints is an industry first,” said Mark Harris, Vice President of Strategy at Nlyte Software. “It allows for the complete capture of designs from the detailed specifications, up through all elements of an asset, including how they are visually rendered in 3D. So rather than forcing data center professionals to start with a blank slate each time they create specific asset designs, Nlyte Smart Blueprints simplifies the process, saving time and capital resources, by enabling them to leverage pre-existing assets.”
