SAN MATEO, Calif. (PRWEB) August 05, 2014
X15 Software, Inc., a leading large-scale machine and log data management company, today announced the general availability of X15 Enterprise™, a revolutionary machine and log data management solution.
X15 Enterprise helps companies accelerate their machine data management deployments by providing an end-to-end solution for ingesting, indexing, searching and analyzing machine data. Purpose-built for petabyte-size machine data environments, X15 Enterprise enables IT organizations across all industries to solve their most demanding machine data problems.
Machine data is a valuable and fast-growing category of Big Data. Derived from system logs and other sources, this type of data is used to monitor, troubleshoot and optimize business infrastructures and operations. Machine and log data management are critical components of application performance management, security and compliance (SIEM), web analytics, Internet of Things (IoT) and many other enterprise initiatives. Though machine data analysis offers significant benefits, companies have been constrained by the first generation of machine data tools because they did not adequately address enterprise computing requirements.
“Machine and log data analysis is an integral part of enterprise data management. Unfortunately companies with multi-terabyte machine data requirements have been poorly served by inflexible, hard-to-scale and expensive tools currently on the market,” said Val Rayzman, founder and CEO, X15 Software. “With X15 Enterprise, our customers can now leverage the power of Hadoop to maximize the ROI of their operational intelligence initiatives.”
“The importance of machine data in business and IT efforts should not be underestimated. This data has historically been difficult to analyze and our research in big data analytics finds that only 42 percent of organizations are doing so today” said Mark Smith, CEO and Chief Research Officer, Ventana Research. “X15 Enterprise’s Hadoop-based architecture, scalability and openness enables organizations to easily access their machine data with a wide variety of analytics tools.”
Unique Product Designed for Petabyte-Sized Machine Data Environments
X15 Enterprise represents a dramatic leap forward in machine data technology. It is built from the ground up to take advantage of modern data processing technologies and is integrated with Hadoop offerings from Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR and Pivotal. X15 Enterprise offers an impressive array of features and capabilities, including:
X15 Enterprise is currently available.
“Machine and log data management is a large and very important use case for Cloudera customers,” said Tim Stevens, vice president, Business and Corporate Development, Cloudera. “Enterprises around the world are storing terabytes of machine data in enterprise data hubs and X15 Enterprise is a great example of a Cloudera-based application that turns raw log data into valuable business insight for customers. They can leverage Hadoop for their most demanding machine data requirements, further reinforcing the value of a Cloudera enterprise data hub.”
“Hortonworks is dedicated to expanding the Apache Hadoop ecosystem by integrating with existing enterprise technologies and adding value to big data deployments,” said John Kreisa, vice president of strategic marketing at Hortonworks. “As a core component of the modern data architecture, Hadoop enables storage and analysis of net-new data types, including machine-generated data. By deeply integrating with 100-percent open source Hadoop, X15 Enterprise will help customers to easily build their next generation of highly scalable machine-data applications.”
“Many businesses recognize the cost and capability advantages of shifting machine data to a modern architecture based on Hadoop,” said Jon Posnik, vice president of business development, MapR Technologies. “Combining the MapR Distribution with X15 Software delivers immediate value to customers with outstanding scale, performance and flexibility for large-scale machine and log data management.”
