Glassbeam Introduces Next Generation Platform for Machine Data Analytics

October 21, 2013 by

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Oct. 21, 2013Glassbeam, Inc., the machine data analytics company, today announced Glassbeam SCALAR, a next generation cloud-based platform for organizing and analyzing complex machine data. The company also introduced Glassbeam Explorer, a cloud application that adds search capabilities to the core platform, and Glassbeam Studio, a visual development tool to map unstructured logs for analytics and prediction.

 The Internet of Things (IoT) is made up of an ever-growing number of connected devices, which generate vast amounts of data complex in variety, volume and velocity. Product manufacturers across data-intensive industries – such as storage, wireless, networking and medical devices – are struggling to make sense of all this data and turn it into proactive business intelligence.

Glassbeam solutions are designed to bring structure and meaning to data from any connected device. With its core analytics platform, Glassbeam goes beyond traditional log management and data mining tools, and beyond operational intelligence to unlock the value of ‘true device’ data for actionable product, customer and business intelligence.

 Glassbeam SCALAR is the next generation platform for machine data analytics.

Glassbeam SCALAR is a fast, secure and scalable platform for machine data analytics – a hyper scale cloud-based platform designed to organize and analyze unstructured and multi-structured machine data.

 Glassbeam SCALAR is powered by a parallel asynchronous engine, which leverages the company’s domain-specific language to describe the structure, meaning and relationships of unstructured data. Leveraging a stack of open source Big Data components including Cassandra and Solr, SCALAR is built for scale and speed to handle complex log bundles and analyze terabytes of data.

 Glassbeam applications and tools extend the core platform to search and analyze machine log data.

Glassbeam also delivers a set of standard applications, dashboards and tools to extend the power of the SCALAR platform. These include Glassbeam Analytics, Glassbeam Health Check, the new Glassbeam Explorer application and new Glassbeam Studio visual development tool announced today:

  •  NEW Glassbeam Explorer is a cloud-based search and log management application that enables users to find, explore, analyze and visualize logs and other textual data. Users can manage and integrate complex, multi-format data from various sources to isolate and troubleshoot issues, compare and correlate data to tie events to changes, and create a central repository of device and customer logs for compliance and audit purposes.
  • NEW Glassbeam Studio is a visual development tool that uses advanced ETL and semantics to map unstructured logs to structured data for deeper analytics. Glassbeam Studio will enable developers for the first time to generate data mapping and meta data definitions inside the core platform, leveraging Glassbeam’s proprietary domain-specific language for increased productivity and customized application development.

Glassbeam’s patent-pending technology is enabling customers to reduce costs, increase revenues, accelerate product time to market, and improve customer satisfaction and retention. Glassbeam customers and partners include Fortune 500 companies and enterprises across a variety of markets including storage, wireless, networking and medical devices.
