Best DCIM tools on the market.

2018-10-09

I would suggest that they speak to other customers using the product to get a real view on what Nlyte can provide.

Pros

I have been a Nlyte customer for over 5 years and I am using it's asset management and environmental monitoring tools (NAO & NEO).

Cons

Would like to see easier integration related to API configuration.

DCIM, Promices kept and a quatum increase in removing the curtains of data center mysteries.

2020-05-22

The level of data collection required is a few orders of magnitude higher and the effort to collect was anticipated and has greatly improved our current processes in going to a digital development posture versus having to make trips into the hosting centers and reduced our associated risk.

Pros

Power from the Utility down to the switched outlet with audit trails, to all the interdependencies of the loaded software, data connections and management with move plan-o-grams to give the techs.

Cons

As with most of these applications it is very cerebral in being able to visualize your environment in the forms presented, initial user training is a real paradigm shift for those who don't live in the cabinets.

Head and shoulders above the rest

2020-06-15

Being able to show business owners a 3D model of their racks, along with the monitoring of power, space, heat and available U space, adds confidence and allows migrations to happen with fewer reservations.

Pros

I was able to map the power chain (UPS-Generator-PDU-Panel-beakers-circuits-receptacles-rack power strips) for a large data center in about an hour.

Cons

If it were one seamless GUI, and the NEO monitoring functions were more intuitive, that would be a huge win.

Nlyte for Asset Management

2020-06-09

Since the information was provided directly from the Data Center Operators we were able to cross reference the data information in Nlyte with other sources that we had on hand

Pros

The ability to see a rack configuration is key. You can view the individual components of a storage shelf. You can also view the attributes of each component

Cons

There were some issue when we attempted to export data from Nlyte to an excel document.

Simple and Easy

2020-08-10

Nlyte gives our Infra team to have visual view of DC floors And best part is the efficient lifecycle management of assets

Pros

We had no previous DC management tool in use and were completely relying over complex excel sheet management.

Cons

3D view edit lock button is something our users usually and repeatedly miss. I wish there is a different presentation for users to know when they can and when they cannot edit it.

Brought us into the light

2020-06-15

Adopting Nlyte brought us into the 21st-century by giving us the tools and capabilities that should be standard across the industry for all data center service providers and colocation customers.

Pros

The ease of visualizing our data center assets to customers and administrators offsite, and tracking our cabling configuration between the assets.

Cons

Either there’s no ability to open a new service request through Nlyte directly from the asset page, or it’s not intuitive to see how that could be enabled.

Good product!

2020-03-06

for now I can use nlyte to monitor the situation of spaces, power and wiring of a small part of the data center

Pros

I am quite happy with the nlyte product, even if to use it at its best, there is an need for an efficient organization of people who keep everything up to date.

Cons

I wish it was faster in its use and a little more "smart"

Take the Time to Make Your Job Easier

2020-06-23

While some may consider this a con, I considerate it a feature as protecting the integrity of the Nlyte database is a major concern and Nlyte walks a line between ease of use protecting data from changes by a novice.

Pros

Mundane asset information is easily searchable, while diagrams and pictures are immediately available to facilitate descriptions to customers who may never actually set foot in the data center.

Cons

Loading the data that Nlyte will use is a significant undertaking.

Nlyte in use

2020-08-17

It is stable and reliable. However, it sometimes presents a mountain to climb when trying to gain usage of deeper held features. I think, too, response may be impacted by the workload that underlies Windows 10. This would reflect negatively on Nlyte.

Pros

Scope and completeness of feature coverage

Cons

The user interface must be written from the point of view of a naive first time user.

DataCenter and me

2020-08-13

Overall this product has helped us and i am liking it.

Pros

We still need to use all of the features but for now it has helped us a lot in maintaining the database of equipment we have in the data center.

Cons

Bulk loading is still complicated and need to be improved making it more user friendly. Network connections are major part of the DC, can this be made more simple.

Data Center Details

2020-08-10

Great service from everyone I have worked with at Nlyte! Can't wait to become an expert in this.

Pros

The interface is easy to use and there is a lot of information at your fingertips.

Cons

There are so many details that need to be obtained in order to implement this. Takes a monumental effort for me (the customer) to get this thing rolling.

Colo Facility

2020-08-10

My experience with Nlyte from implementation to ongoing support has been great. We have been a customer for 5 years now and I don't have a bad think to say about the organization.

Pros

The ability to manage our own implementation and make additions and changes without outside help is a big selling point. As a colo facility our environment is constantly changing and the flexibility of this software makes a big difference for us.

Cons

I would like to see more training and/or ability to create custom reporting.

Great flexibility but needs more

2020-05-26

Nlyte is a great and useful product, but it could be so much more than it is

Pros

I like how I am able to modify a lot of areas to fit my needs

Cons

I wish there was more that I can modify, for example I would like to be able to change the titles of fields, I would like to be able to change the shape of the tiles, I would like to create custom dashboards that would appear IN nlyte, so that people didn't have to go somewhere else to see the dashboard, and I wish I could create multiple assets at one time, especially if they are all the same material.

Overpriced, mediocre product with poor support

2018-07-27

This software is overpriced. Nice idea, poorly implemented and even more poorly supported.

Pros

Very customizable, however you have to customize about everything. Nice idea for a product, but poorly implemented, worsely supported and highly over priced

Cons

If you have a problem, they might call it a feature request and it will never get looked at again.
