SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 12, 2015) - Nlyte Software, the world's leading software company developing solutions for automating the management of data center infrastructure, today announced that it has been recognized in The Channel Company's annual CRN Data Center 100 list, featuring technology vendors whose solutions are vital to today's data centers. Selected by the CRN editorial staff after months of indepth research and nominations from solution providers, each vendor on the Data Center 100 list is recognized for providing channel partners with an opportunity to grow their business by offering cutting-edge products and services to their customers.

The companies included in CRN's Data Center 100 list were chosen based on a variety of criteria, including the types of technology and services they make available to partners as well as their overall impact on the market and the channel. This year's list honors vendors in five data center technology categories: Infrastructure Providers, Tool Providers, Virtualization Vendors, Service Providers, and Designers and Builders.

For more than a decade, Nlyte has been a leader in the data center infrastructure management (DCIM) market. The company's DCIM solution automates the management of processes, policies and dependencies that exist in data centers, enabling operators to reduce the cost of resources, improve efficiency of employees and increase agility in responding to business demands. The company is widely recognized for the benefits it provides data center operators, including its recent inclusion in the coveted Leaders quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for DCIM Tools from industry research firm Gartner, Inc. With growing demand for Nlyte's offerings, the company has been actively building its channel, signing nearly two-dozen new partners in just the last quarter of 2014.

"The Data Center 100 list focuses on the contributions of those vendors whose technologies enable the channel partner community to strategically and profitably drive greater innovation, efficiency and productivity in the data center," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "At the helm of these leading-edge companies are forward-thinking executives who are envisioning and architecting the data centers of tomorrow. We applaud their accomplishments and anticipate their continued contributions to our dynamic industry."

"Most organizations still do not realize the importance of leveraging business acumen to manage cost and performance in increasingly complex data center environments. Nlyte recognized the benefits of this years ago and developed a pure-play DCIM offering that helps operators of data centers of all sizes optimize their environments," said Sandra Denton, vice president of channels for Nlyte. "We are honored to see so many new partners coming to Nlyte to expand availability of our DCIM solution and give their customers the tools they need to run more efficient data centers."
