MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/16/13 -- Cloudmeter, a provider of leading software solutions for transforming real-time network Big Data into actionable information for IT and business users, today announced the general availability of Cloudmeter Stream, in addition to a beta program for Cloudmeter Insight. These new solutions provide a simple yet powerful way for companies to unlock the 'information goldmine' within their networks for transforming data into meaningful business and IT information.
"The two products we are introducing today represent a breakthrough in making valuable information accessible, available and useful for those who are in charge of end-users' experience, whether their applications run on public or private clouds or within their internal networks," said Mike Dickey, Cloudmeter founder and CEO. "Our new data capture technology is a culmination of many years of experience building network-based data capture products. It enables customers to gain real-time access into the wealth of business and IT information without the need to connect to physical network infrastructure, and without introducing risk to production systems or application performance."
No other infrastructure carries the breadth of valuable information as an organization's network because everything related to the business travels through it. Until now, this type of data has been difficult to analyze due to limitations of today's technologies, such as not being able to capture all the information related to the customer experience, risk to production systems, etc. With Cloudmeter Stream and Cloudmeter Insight, customers can essentially 'harvest' this valuable information by leveraging ultralight agents that passively mine in real-time Big Data streams generated by web applications, all with no impact on production systems.
Introducing Cloudmeter Stream
Cloudmeter Stream is designed to help companies leverage the highly valuable information that flows through their networks. It includes the industry's first ultra-light passive capture agent that can be installed directly on customers' servers and do not require connecting to network infrastructure. Cloudmeter Stream includes a built-in event processing technology that allows users to filter, transform and enrich their data in real time before feeding it into their preferred Big Data and analytics solutions.
"Skinit places great emphasis on the customer experience. The wealth and quality of information made available by Cloudmeter's technology allows us to get unparalleled insight into our customers' experience and ensures that our site is optimized to meet their needs. Furthermore, Cloudmeter's zero coding approach and ease of implementation allows us to focus our efforts on analyzing the results, rather than spending time and resources getting the data in," said Kate Bartkiewicz, web analyst at Skinit, Inc. "As we move our in-house servers to the cloud to support our rapid growth, we are looking to Cloudmeter to help us make this transition seamlessly while providing continuous visibility into our customers' experience."
Cloudmeter Stream integrates with Big Data solutions such as Splunk, Hadoop and
GoodData, as well as popular web analytic solutions like Adobe's SiteCatalyst, Google Analytics and more. With Cloudmeter Stream's 'one implementation, many integrations approach,' a customer can feed data from Cloudmeter Stream to many different analytics solutions.
"We are excited about the Cloudmeter Stream integration with GoodData," said Cody Crnkovich, VP of Channels and Alliances at GoodData. "Cloudmeter Stream's unparalleled data capture capabilities, combined with the ease and openness of GoodData's end-to-end platform ensures that both business and IT users are provided with an unprecedented view and understanding of users' experiences on critical systems."
With its next generation capture technology, CM Capture, Cloudmeter Stream is a great fit for all common web application implementations, including public and private clouds as well as internal networks. In addition, this technology does not require access to network hardware. Simple and easy to implement, the combination of state-of-the-art data capture with event processing, and the ability to seamlessly integrate real-time information with a customer's current database, business intelligence and Big Data products, helps organizations tackle their most demanding analytics challenges head on.
Features and benefits of Cloudmeter Stream include:

Introducing Cloudmeter Insight and Early Access Sign Up
Today, all the latest innovations in the application performance management space (APM) focus on back-end analytics. With the increase in the number of web applications that move to the cloud, the number of users accessing websites from mobile devices and importance placed upon user experience, the time is right for companies to shift their attention to end-user management. Enter Cloudmeter Insight: the most advanced SaaS solution that focuses directly on helping customers understand and improve the end user experience.
Cloudmeter Insight presents the most advanced end user management SaaS solution and is the first product to include visual session replay for exceptionally detailed problem analysis.
Because it's a SaaS-based solution, the technology is very simple to implement and has very low TCO.
Features and benefits of Cloudmeter Insight include:
- Cloud friendly, 100 percent SaaS product, meaning no hardware to install
- Very low total cost of ownership (TCO)
- Transaction and business transaction based analytics
- Integrated Session Replay capabilities that enable one click from problem identification to session replay for unprecedented drill-down into diagnostics
- Ultralight, non-intrusive agents that tap into network streams
- Zero risk to production systems and no impact on performance
- No need for direct connection to network hardware
"We've long looked for a way to manage application performance as apps migrate into and out of cloud-hosting where traditional systems management solutions lose visibility," said Mike Matchett, senior analyst and consultant at Taneja Group. "Because Cloudmeter's new lightweight capture technology can deploy alongside the application as an isolated process on existing physical and/or virtual servers, it offers a rich and consistent management approach across private, hybrid and public clouds, without introducing risk or impacting an application's performance. Significant for both IT and application owners, this approach could then be used to compare and optimize cloud hosting decisions, saving money while assuring end user satisfaction."

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
