Every day, companies and individuals all over the world produce 2.5 quintillion bytes of data.
According to reports, 90 percent of the data in the world today has been produced in the last two years. Data comes from everywhere: posts to social media sites, sensors used to gather climate information, purchase transaction records, digital pictures and videos, cell phone GPS signals and so on. This information is known as “big data.”
Handling it is promising to many companies. ScaleXtreme, a source of cloud-based monitoring and systems management, recently offered “big data” systems management functionality as part of its next-generation systems management products.
Customers can now identify evolving trends and be better informed of the steps they should take to respond to immediate and upcoming issues with their infrastructure with the combination of big data analytics, insights into the administration, and the management of systems.
Big data insights will assist ScaleXtreme and systems admins in making data-driven decisions about their infrastructure.
“Only a cloud-based tool can aggregate, anonymize and analyze IT operations data at scale, from a large base of users to deliver actionable intelligence to customers,” said ScaleXtreme CEO Nand Mulchandani (News - Alert). “The advancement of data analysis technologies has enabled us to begin work on an ambitious overhaul of the systems management products that IT operators are familiar with.”
Recently, the company announced complete support for Windows Azure Virtual Machines to start, administer, manage and patch Windows Server and Linux machines in Windows Azure. The company said it provides a single view, combining the management of a company’s server environment. It works with Windows Server and a variety of Linux-based operating systems and assists companies scale server deployments through a variety of templates.
