USA: Carrier has signed an agreement to acquire Nlyte Software, a leader in data centre infrastructure management (DCIM) software.
According to Carrier, Nlyte’s proven data centre expertise will complement its differentiated Automated Logic Controls business and expand its access to the growing DCIM segment.
“Nlyte’s software and services, along with the expertise of its team, will enable Carrier to further develop our data centre capabilities and bring enhanced services and solutions to Carrier’s broad, global customer base,” said Carrier HVAC president Chris Nelson. “This is an excellent strategic fit and enables us to provide customers a premier offering of data centre controls and infrastructure power management.”
Formed in 2004 and headquartered in California’s Silicon Valley, Nlyte claims to be the first company to deliver the industry’s benchmark for Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM).
Nlyte helps customers manage their IT infrastructure and drives digital transformation of data centres. Its DCIM software provides centralised management of all data centre resources, helping organisations plan, view and optimise their data centres for maximum energy efficiency and transparency.
“As a leader in the DCIM market, we will be able to offer new solutions and value-added customer services for HVAC equipment, building automation, controls, security and fire systems,” said Nlyte CEO Doug Sabella. “With Carrier’s global footprint, Nlyte will be able to reach new segments and geographies.”
Nlyte will become part of Automated Logic Corporation (ALC), Carrier’s building automation and controls business, within Carrier’s HVAC segment.
Carrier expects to close its acquisition of Nlyte in the fourth quarter of 2021 subject to customary closing conditions.
