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

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."

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...
