Cloudmeter Unlocks the Big Data 'Gold Mine' in Customer Networks With Launch of Cloudmeter Stream and Cloudmeter Insight

Company First to Market With Solution to Help IT and Business Users Transform Real-Time Network Data Into Actionable Information

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:

  • Offers a complete solution that minimizes blind spots and renders the most meaningful data
  • Transforms and contextualizes network data with the ability to drill down into specific session information in real time
  • Filters and streams only the information you are interested in
  • Enriches data with built-in event processing technology
  • Support for applications running in public clouds, private clouds, and on internal networks
  • Presents zero risk to production systems and no impact on performance

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."
