LucidWorks Launches SiLK, a Highly Scalable, Enterprise-Ready Solution for Log Analysis Built Atop Lucene Solr Search

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LucidWorks, the company transforming the way people access information, today announced LucidWorks SiLK, a search-driven analytics solution that enables organizations to cost-effectively analyze massive amounts of device, log and other time series data.

Built atop the power of Apache® Solr™, LucidWorks SiLK is a feature-rich user interface that runs atop LucidWorks Search and includes best-in-class tools, such as LogStash, Kibana and Flume, creating a highly reliable solution. LucidWorks SiLK also features LucidWorks' advanced security and ease of administration. With LucidWorks SiLK, organizations can perform analysis on large log files without investing in an expensive proprietary solution or struggling with inexpensive, but unproven software.

In addition, LucidWorks SiLK offers out-of-the-box monitoring capabilities, pre-fabricated reports, and analytics for log data. The solution includes all of the management and security capabilities available from LucidWorks and can integrate with and augment any existing Solr or LogStash deployment. This enables organizations to continue to grow their deployment of search-backed log analysis to the scale they require.

Log data holds tremendous promise to provide very deep insight across an organization, including IT operations, security analysis, business intelligence, fraud detection and more. To deliver on that promise, however, users need very quick, access and analysis, which becomes increasingly difficult as the amount of log data continues to skyrocket. LucidWorks SiLK now gives organizations the ability to quickly and cost-effectively aggregate, access and analyze their largest big data log files.

"With LucidWorks SiLK organizations no longer have to experiment with rolling their own solution by either cobbling together a series of un-supported open source tools or buying expensive proprietary offerings" said Will Hayes, Chief Product Officer at LucidWorks. "Instead, they can use the proven Lucene/Solr platform along with the tools they are already familiar with to deploy a top-tier solution to analyze their logs, device and other big data."

Key capabilities of LucidWorks SiLK include:

  • Data Enrichment: Fields, tags and other meta-data can be extracted automatically to provide context and meaning to event data. Searches resulting in a mix of unstructured events and transactions can be easily transformed into simple rows and columns for easy ad-hoc analysis.
  • Extensive Collection Capability: Whether data is sitting in log files on disk, coming across a network, or stored in a Hadoop cluster, LucidWorks SiLK provides a variety of ways to ingest it. LucidWorks SiLK also supports the visualization and inspection of non-temporal data including documents, email, database tables and more.
  • Linear Scale: LucidWorks SiLK runs atop the scale and performance of Lucene/Solr, one of the most scalable and reliable search engines in the world.  SolrCloud enables linear scale of LucidWorks Search allowing organizations to utilize commodity, virtualized or cloud resources in a cost effective manner.

"LucidWorks SiLK is now certified on Cloudera 5," said Tim Stevens, vice president of Business and Corporate Development at Cloudera. "We see strong demand for our platform as businesses increasingly deploy large scale data hubs in their environments. Through LucidWorks, our customers gain the ability to naturally access and interact with their data stored on Hadoop in new ways."

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
