Machine logs analytics – next frontier for data center infrastructure management (dcim)

Jun 25, 2014

There are few detractors when it comes to the value of DCIM for an Infrastrucutre-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider. But as the data centers become more dynamic and heterogeneous, these tools will need to adept. As CDW, a leading DCIM vendor PREDICTS that cross vendor visibility and heterogeneous platform will challenge the effectiveness of these tools.

Glassbeam for root cause analysis

Jun 11, 2014

As a Solutions Architect at Glassbeam, I come across many pre-sales situations during a demo, when I’m asked to showcase our functionality to perform a root cause analysis. So, here is a good example that I’ve pretty much standardized for such situations. It sure is a compelling value proposition of the Glassbeam Explorer application.

It is an honor to be recognized (again) by CRN in their TOP 50 LIST OF COMPANIES that are changing the world of business analytics with big data. To quote CRN, "this list recognizes companies that have demonstrated an ability to innovate in bringing to market products and services that help business work with big data".

Why phone-home makes strategic sense?

May 31, 2014

I have come across many sales situations where customers are unsure or wary of asking their customers to send regular feeds of the machine-generated data (logs). This feature is known as phone-home or call-home. The fact is that all high technology devices, systems and networks are constantly generating all kinds of log data (syslogs, configs, stats, static etc). This is now called the Internet of Things (IoT) phenomenon.

Predicting system failures to improve customer satisfaction

May 14, 2014

Companies like Amazon, Google, and Netflix have done an amazing job of providing a great customer experience. For example, when you use Google’s search engine, it quickly figures out if you are just researching a topic or planning to a buy a product/service. Accordingly, it tailors content to show you relevant ads or chooses not to display any. Similarly, when you buy a product on Amazon, it displays other products that may be of interest to you. Netflix offers suggestions of movies you may enjoy based on your viewing behavior. How do they do this?

Happy New Year – and what a year it’s been.

With the technology advancements of phones, tablets, glasses, clothing and machines over the last year, there are volumes of unstructured and multi-structured data collected from machines and connected devices, and it’s growing at a dizzying pace. The Internet of Things is quickly turning into the Internet of Everything – in today’s always-on, always-connected world, and machine data is everywhere.

Glassbeam begins where splunk ends – going beyond operational intelligence with iot logs

Dec 10, 2013

Splunk announced today that it acquired Cloudmeter to enhance its capability to analyze machine data. While tools like Splunk have tremendous value for internal data centers, companies are starting to embark on more complex Big Data projects with multi-structured machine logs. The rapidly exploding market of physically connected devices and the machine data generated by the “Internet of Things” is driving the need to leverage this data beyond simple troubleshooting needs.

Designing for the internet of things using cassandra

I like the word “ontology”. It has a nice ring to it. Wikipedia defines Ontology as “knowledge as a set of concepts within a domain, and the relationships among those concepts”. When applied to machine data analytics (“domain”), we see that unless we isolate concepts and understand the relationships, we cannot obtain “knowledge”.

The intersection of machine data analytics and the internet of things

Sep 08, 2013

The ability to gather and harness data from machines and devices connected to the net is increasingly becoming a source of competitive advantage for those who have been thinking ahead. GE is widely cited, with their INDUSTRIAL INTERNET initiative. Cisco has been talking about INTERNET OF EVERYTHING for a while. At Glassbeam, we have been focusing on the infrastructure required to process and analyze machine data for over 3 years now.
