nlyte signs blue-infinity as Regional Implementation Partner and launches partnership at Geneva event with Dutch Police spokesperson
LONDON, UK September 28, 2010 Following the appointment of Grant Bilbow as Vice President of France and Southern Europe in July 2010, nlyte Software, the only provider of performance-based solutions for Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM), has signed blue-infinity (b-i) as the regions main implementation partner. blue-infinity will work alongside nlyte and BMC, nlytes global reseller partner to implement and integrate nlytes software across the region.
To launch the partnership, nlyte and b-i will be holding the first ever DCIM event in Switzerland supported by Jan Wiersma Data Centre Evangelist - Dutch Police Force and International Director: EMEA for Data Center Pulse (DCP). The event, to be held in Geneva on Wednesday 27th October, 2010, will outline how DCIM solutions can help data centre and facilities managers to address the challenges of rising energy costs, space limitations, data centre consolidations and migrations and actual or impending government legislation.
I am pleased to be able to attend the nlyte and b-i event to explain how the use of nlytes DCIM solution is helping the Dutch Police Force to manage its 18 data centres, 6,000 servers and 1,500 plus applications that support the day-to-day work of 55,000 employees said Wiersma. It is vitally important that such a complex, public sector environment is managed in the most optimized environmentally friendly manner and nlytes DCIM software helps us to do this.
The data centre market in Europe is very dynamic and we are seeing some clear trends emerging such as data centre consolidation and a move towards more efficient and responsible use of space and energy commented Simon Webster, Vice President and General Manager of EMEA Operations. Adding blue-infinity to our network of partners and being supported by The Dutch Police Force to launch our partnership, will allow us to continue to grow and raise awareness of our European presence and to respond to the current and future needs of the market.
According to Jorge Pablo Gonzalez, Practice Manager at blue-infinity our partnership with nlyte is an ideal complement to blue-infinity as we will be able to help companies implement and integrate nlytes software within their data centres, and to offer support and advice throughout the complete project lifecycle; from project management and application roll-out to change management, internal audit support, training, reporting, process management and capacity planning.
"We are looking forward to introducing the nlyte solution to our European customer base and to hearing the Dutch police story at our event in October added Gonzalez.
