SOLUTION FOCUS
gave Sandia personnel an accurate picture
of everything on the floor. As Martinez
noted, "How would we troubleshoot if we
didn't even know where the assets were?"
Members of his team soon had visibility
to each asset, down to its exact location
within a room. They also gained branch
circuit monitoring, right down to the
rack. This transparency enabled the team
to see trending, assets, power usage, and
empowered predictive analysis. With these
capabilities, the team could finally answer
previously unanswerable questions: What
would happen if power were lost? How
would a failure affect the data center? What
would the addition of new equipment do
to the surrounding area?
By automating the process, the new
DCIM significantly cut manual labor and
associated costs. The built-in dashboards
and reports in the Nlyte solution eliminated hand calculations and field verification. "Before," Martinez explained, "we had
electric meters on power mains, but we had
to go and read them. Now, we just turn on
the (Nlyte) screen. We can trust what we
see there. We save many, many man hours."

This kind of information leads to other
savings. "We're not predicting any more,"
Martinez said. "We have live studies. We're
turning metrics into dollars and cents. This
puts our operational costs more in perspective. The more metrics we have on power
and cooling usage, the more we can trim."
Sandia's internal customers now have
access to their information, and can see
their own trending when adding equipment. When adding new customers,
Sandia's management now has an up-todate cost model for accurate chargebacks.

Going forward
Sandia began using these Nlyte Enterprise
and Nlyte Energy Optimizer features and
has plans to use more in the future:
■ Data Center Module for viewing and
managing all asset information
■ Connection Manager for tracing power
and data connection with the data
center
■ Floor Planner for planning and
managing physical layout of floors,
rooms, and assets within data centers
■ Dashboard and Reporting for accessing

pre-defined dashboards, as well as the
flexibility to create, deploy and maintain
user-defined dashboards
■ Intelligent Asset Allocation for creating
and managing auto-allocation projects
with Nlyte's patented Intelligent Asset
Placement.
For the next phase of adoption, Sandia
foresees using Nlyte Predict, working to
include Nlyte Barcode, and adding Nlyte
Integrator at a later stage.
"We're very pleased about the way
everything has developed," Martinez noted,
"including deployment and use of the
Nlyte system. It's beyond what I thought
it would be. It has definitely exceeded our
expectations."
Even more important, given its DCIMreadiness using the Nlyte Dashboard and
Reporting, Sandia is primed to tackle the
upcoming challenges of the DCOI (Data
Center Optimization Initiative), a Federal
mandate that other U.S. government agencies have been able to address using Nlyte's
DCOI Dashboard. MT
