NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- raintank, the team behind popular time-series data visualization tool Grafana, announced the release of Grafana 4.0 today at GrafanaCon. With the latest update, Grafana now offers alerting, which transforms the visualization dashboard into a powerful monitoring tool. It also includes hundreds of new updates, many of which improve its functionality and user experience.
The news of Grafana 4.0 aligns with Intel's announcement of Snap 1.0 and Graphite delivery. raintank announced integration of Snap, the open telemetry platform from Intel, into Grafana earlier this year. With the addition of Graphite, a time series database, these three leading components let users easily analyze, collect and store a wide range of disparate time series metrics. Together, they combine to form a complete, and fully open source monitoring stack that will underpin fully supported offerings from raintank.
Grafana 4.0: Most commonly used in Internet application and infrastructure analytics, Grafana is increasingly finding uses for IoT, sensor data, financial modeling, and industrial process control, and more.
"Alerting is a really revolutionary feature for Grafana, because it extends its capabilities as a visualization tool into a mission critical, real-time monitoring tool," said Torkel Odegaard, creator of Grafana (http://grafana.org) and co-founder of raintank. "This fourth major release caps off an incredible year for Grafana, which saw the project accelerate to over 50,000 reported active installations."
Snap 1.0: The 1.0 version of Snap is now available. Snap was designed by Intel to simplify the collection, processing and publishing of system data through a single API enabling operators to more acutely control hardware capabilities and take full advantage of hardware optimizations. With its latest update, Snap now features production-ready stability, enhanced operational experience, and multi-language plugin support for Go, Python, and C/++.
"Grafana delivers an excellent dashboard experience for visualizing the telemetry data collected by Snap," said Jonathan Donaldson, vice president and general manager of the Software Defined Infrastructure group at Intel. "The rollout of Grafana 4.0, integrating the full capabilities of Snap 1.0, gives enterprises an even more powerful way to improve application performance through optimized infrastructure utilization."
Graphite 1.0: The Graphite project also announced a preview of Graphite 1.0. Graphite is one of the most popular open source time series databases amongst Grafana users. raintank has become a recent champion of Graphite, driving the launch of a new website and logo, and hiring maintainer Jason Dixon to help accelerate the project. Graphite 1.X will give users a choice of storage backends, including an upcoming highly scalable option from raintank.
Time-series data has rapidly become a distinct category, with its own unique set of challenges and requirements demanding a new approach for database delivery for this kind of specialized data. According to DB-Engines, which ranks the popularity of database technologies, time-series databases were the fastest growing data management category over the last year. Grafana is the de facto visualization software for most of the top 10 databases in that category, including Graphite, Prometheus, and InfluxDB.
raintank is the company behind Grafana, the leading open source software for visualizing time series data. raintank helps users get the most out of Grafana, enabling them to take back control of their unified monitoring, and avoid the vendor lock in and spiraling costs of closed solutions.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
