Mountain View, California (PRWEB) May 04, 2017
Treasure Data, the leading cloud platform to make all data connected, current, and easily accessible, today announced the second generation Enterprise Edition for Fluentd, its sponsored Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) open source project for unified log management. Following massive growth in both the open source community and in paid subscriptions, Fluentd Enterprise Edition now features enhanced security, enterprise certified connectors, and monitoring and management to help enterprises keep up with the rapid evolution of infrastructure technology and turn log data into a strategic business asset.
“Among large enterprises, cloud has very quickly become necessary in order to stay competitive. Now hybrid, multi-cloud environments present an increasing challenge to unify data securely,” said Hiro Yoshikawa, CEO and co-founder of Treasure Data. “Fluentd’s open source roots keep us agile and responsive to the users’ needs. Today, we’re providing Enterprise Certified Connectors for the most demanded tools like Splunk, Apache Hadoop, Apache Kafka, and Amazon S3, along with the ability to rapidly introduce new Enterprise Certified Connectors as the ecosystem evolves.”
Fluentd has grown its user base over the last five years and have been adopted by Red Hat’s Openshift, Microsoft’s Operations Management Suite (OMS), and Google Cloud Platform. With more than 5,000 GitHub stars, one million downloads on Rubygems, and one million pulls on Docker Hub, Fluentd has become the eighth most deployed software on Docker, and the most deployed log management software, according to a study by cloud monitoring platform DataDog.
Fluentd Enterprise, created by Treasure Data, solves many of the problems faced with building a unified logging layer with a modular architecture, an extensible plugin model, and a performance optimized engine. Now, in response to massive adoption and increasing enterprise demand, Treasure Data will offer Fluentd Enterprise as a subscription with the following features:
In order to enable enterprises using Fluentd to collect critical logs and meet security and compliance standards across cloud applications, Treasure Data implements the state-of-the-art, end-to-end data security measures, such as AES-256 security encryption at rest and centralized data streaming from firewalls, network devices, applications, web servers, and generic log files. Now, this security will include an encrypted buffer, allowing enterprise customers to transport logs securely at scale, without worrying about data breaches. Additionally, Fluentd Enterprise ensures that all downstream dependencies including the runtime (Ruby), protocol (MessagePack) and evented I/O engine (Cool.io) are scanned and fixed for vulnerabilities and compatibilities.
Fluentd boasts more than 700 community-contributed plugins, many of which are essential to large enterprises routing data to the destination they need without being locked into a single vendor. With Enterprise Edition, customers can receive quality and compatibility assurance, as well as performance and security support for key plugins through certified connectors, which have been optimized according to backend, tested, and benchmarked for maximum performance. Certified connectors for Splunk, Apache Kafka, Amazon S3, Treasure Data, Apache Hadoop Filesystem, and more will run smoothly even as adjacent ecosystems evolve over time.
White Glove Support
As Fluentd is a critical part of data pipelines for enterprises, Treasure Data will ensure it adheres to high uptime requirements large organizations need. In addition to enterprise support up to 24/7 coverage and training and deployment support, Fluentd Enterprise Edition will offer monitoring and management as an enterprise add-on, including real-time metrics and alerting. These metrics can be integrated and configured within cloud services and open source tools such as DataDog, Puppet, Chef, Ansible, Terraform and Prometheus to alert enterprise customers of any issues. With monitoring and management services, enterprises will be able to manage Fluentd more easily and scalably than ever.
"Fluentd is a popular stream-based log collector and aggregator, open sourced under the auspices of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation," said James Governor, RedMonk analyst. "With Fluentd Enterprise Edition, Treasure Data is providing the kind of services that mainstream IT organisations expect from a product or service."
