US: Carrier has signed an agreement to acquire Nlyte Software, a leader in data center infrastructure management software (DCIM).
According to Carrier, Nlyte’s proven data center expertise will complement its differentiated Automated Logic Controls business and expand its entry into the growing DCIM segment.
“Nlyte’s software and services, along with its team’s expertise, will enable Carrier to further develop our data center capabilities and provide enhanced services and solutions to Carrier’s broad, global customer base,” said Carrier HVAC President Chris Nelson. “This is an excellent strategic match and allows us to provide customers with a premium offering of data center controls and infrastructure energy management.”
Founded in 2004 and headquartered in California’s Silicon Valley, Nlyte claims to be the first company to deliver the data center infrastructure management (DCIM) benchmark.
Nlyte helps customers manage their IT infrastructure and drive the digital transformation of data centers. The DCIM software provides centralized management of all data center resources and helps organizations plan, view and optimize their data centers for maximum energy efficiency and transparency.
“As a leader in the DCIM market, we will be able to provide new solutions and value-added customer service for HVAC equipment, building automation, controls, security and fire systems,” said Nlyte CEO Doug Sabella. “With Carrier’s global presence, Nlyte can reach new segments and geographies.”
Nlyte becomes part of Automated Logic Corporation (ALC), Carrier’s building automation and control division, within Carrier’s HVAC segment.
Carrier expects to close the acquisition of Nlyte in the fourth quarter of 2021 on customary terms.
