Inc. (NASDAQ:SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for
real-time Operational Intelligence, and Syncsort, a global leader in
high-performance big data software, today announced a technical alliance
to unlock insights from machine data generated by mainframe systems, a
critical and major source of corporate data. The alliance enables
organizations to search, analyze and visualize massive streams of
mainframe data, with the simplicity, scalability and efficiency of
Splunk® Enterprise and Splunk Cloud. This alliance also enables joint
customers to correlate mainframe data with data across the enterprise to
gain broader Operational Intelligence for the organization.
Joint customers include top Fortune 500 telcos, retailers, insurance,
healthcare and financial organizations, which rely heavily on mainframes
for critical business operations and have long been challenged to
leverage mainframe data for valuable business insights. The alliance
between Syncsort and Splunk solves this problem and enables our joint
customers to get immediate visibility into mainframe data for the first
time. Syncsort makes it simple to collect, transform and forward
mainframe log data, such as Systems Management Facilities (SMF) records
and mainframe application data into Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Cloud
platforms for correlation and analysis.
“Mainframes still play a key role in many organizations’ IT
infrastructures and produce a substantial amount of corporate data,”
said Sanjay Mehta, vice president of product marketing, Splunk. “Our
alliance with Syncsort enables organizations to more easily monitor and
quickly identify potential security risks, operational or system
failures, and customer financial transaction activities from all

and need to unlock operational intelligence hidden in mainframe records
to gain valuable insights into the customer experience, security and
other key business metrics,” said Bryan Ashley, vice president, business
development, Syncsort. “This alliance will allow customers to use
Syncsort’s powerful engine to efficiently collect and transform targeted
mainframe data, without disrupting the mainframe operating environment,
and load it into Splunk Enterprise or Splunk Cloud for real-time

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure.
For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights.
At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...
