EMC Corporation, a world leader in information management and storage, announced that it has acquired privately held nLayers, a leader in application discovery and mapping software. The acquisition further expands EMC's resource management portfolio, enhancing EMC Smarts' ability to conduct automated comprehensive root cause and impact analysis across all technology domains including networks, applications and storage. The acquisition is not expected to have a material impact on revenues and on EPS for 2006.

nLayers provides an agentless appliance that automatically identifies, maps and models the relationships and inter-dependencies between applications, servers, and devices in a time-based, behavioral model. The technology is based on application behavior modeling (ABM), a patent-pending technology that continuously discovers and monitors application components, resource dependencies, service levels and usage within data centers. nLayers is the industry's first complete configuration management database (CMDB) infrastructure solution, combining award-winning discovery and application dependency mapping capabilities with reconciliation, federation, analytics and dashboards.
