“Workload Asset Management closely aligns the IT and business needs of applications to the physical assets supporting those workloads in order to deliver an optimal environment at the lowest possible cost,” said Enzo Greco, Chief Strategy Officer, Nlyte. “Nlyte’s Workload Asset Management capabilities give an organization a comprehensive view of workloads to assure the necessary critical infrastructure quality is available. This holistic insight can identify whether a dense set of workloads create a potential single point of failure, a most important consideration in today’s rich computing fabric.”
The management of workloads and related critical infrastructure has been predominantly reactive. Situations such as application movement occurred after a failure; thermal systems operated based on changes in temperature and vulnerabilities addressed after a security breach are all too common. With Workload Asset Management an enterprise company can capture rich data inputs and use cognitive analytics via Nlyte Machine Learning, to avoid this reactive process by fundamentally shifting the computing infrastructure management to become more proactive.
The first supporting product to be released under the Nlyte Workload Asset Management family is Nlyte Insight for Nutanix - a purpose-built extension for use by Nutanix Prism customers. The new offering enables organizations with Nutanix Prism deployments to gain a complete understanding of their critical infrastructure and how it impacts the workloads being managed by Nutanix.
“Our release of Nlyte Insight for Nutanixis the first instantiation of Workload Asset Management and illustrates the importance of having a manager-of-managers across workload containers that are increasingly being deployed by enterprises,” said Rob Neave, Nlyte CTO and VP of Product Management. “In the near future, we will expand these capabilities to incorporate a wide set of application containers managed by varying vendors across a heterogeneous set of infrastructure assets. Workload Asset Management is the solution that will allow IT and infrastructure teams to manage this complexity based on the needs of each application.”
