SMART INSIGHT CORPORATION Launches "SMART/InSight® Cloud" on Amazon Web Services

SMART INSIGHT CORPORATION (Head Office: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; President & CEO: Kiyoshi Machida; hereinafter, "SMART INSIGHT") has developed cloud version of SMART/InSight called SMART/InSight® Cloud (hereinafter, “SMART/InSight Cloud, tentative name) usingAmazon CloudSearch.

SMART/InSight has been offering visualization software that integrates scattered data across a range of sources into easy-to-understand visual representations, and this software has been adopted mainly in the manufacturing industry. Today, SMART/InSight launches low cost cloud-based application called “SMART/InSight Cloud” as which is compatible with data on cloud, for wider range of industries. Using Amazon CloudSearch as a search engine, SMART/InSight Cloud, makes flexible cross-sectional search and data visualization a reality. By adapting cloud-based billing such as usage based charge, it gives users the flexibility to set up their own systems that can scale with data volume at a low cost. The company provides the following three services in the forms of templates, and plans to add more features in the future. The three templates can be used as independent cloud services, and services will be rolled out in order starting from this September.

Details of the SMART/InSight Cloud services being announced are as shown below:

1. Real-Time M2M Analytics (tentative name)

'Document Search & Collaboration' feature displays search results on a document-by-document basis, and 'Page Search & Collaboration' feature displays search results on a page by page basis. User can add comment(s) and/or discussion for each document or page. New template makes it possible for users to run page-by-page search, which has some constraints such as processing times under the environment of On-premises system.

  • Capabilities
    • The information that users should watch is shown quickly in the thumbnail previews.
    • Can quickly search by using keywords, and narrow down the search results from various perspectives.
    • Contents of the pages searched can be displayed instantaneously with thumbnails and also be confirmed via previews.
    • Comment(s) can be input from page contents and it is also possible to add discussion.
  • Features
    • Virtually integrates decentralized on-premises file servers on cloud, which eliminates time consuming operation and reduses TCO.
    • No need to download files from Amazon S3 - searching and checking contents can be realized without opening the files.
    • Findings can be shared among user group by adding comment(s) or discussion to the documents or pages.

These three templates will be displayed and demonstrated at ‘AWS Summit Tokyo 2014’ held at Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa on July 17th and 18th, 2014. Notably, in a 'Real-Time M2M Analytics' demo, beacons set up in the exhibition hall will gather and send visitor’s location information from visitors’ smartphones to Amazon Kinesis in real time. SMART/InSight Cloud will simultaneously create and display distribution map of people in the exhibition hall.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
As organizations shift towards IT-as-a-service models, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and now cloud environments grows with it. Commvault can ensure protection, access and E-Discovery of your data – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud, or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enterprise.

"Cloud computing is certainly changing how people consume storage, how they use it, and what they use it for. It's also making people rethink how they architect their environment," stated Brad Winett, Senior Technologist for DDN Storage, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
