SevOne Accelerates Industry Leadership Capabilities with Launch of Performance Log Appliance 2.0

Press Release

10-Day Certification for New Logs with Real-Time Integration of Metrics, Flows and Logs Ushers in Next Generation of Log Analytics

WILMINGTON, DE― May 7, 2015 ―SevOne, the only infrastructure performance monitoring solution engineered for Speed at Scale, today unveiled the SevOne Performance Log Appliance (PLA) 2.0, delivering real-time analytics of raw log data. A critical component of the SevOne Performance Monitoring Cluster, PLA 2.0 enables automatic correlation of real-time network and infrastructure performance metrics, flows and logs at scale. This industry-unique capability is now enhanced with 10-day certification of new logs that SevOne customers have in their service-delivery environments.

“Log data has become one of the most valuable infrastructure monitoring data sources, but current log analytics solutions are siloed offerings that focus on analyzing raw log data after it’s already been collected and stored,” said Jack Sweeney, CEO at SevOne. “SevOne PLA 2.0 represents a fundamental shift in the way people think about log analytics. It transforms raw log event data into real-time operational data that can be tightly integrated with network and infrastructure performance metrics and data flows.”

PLA 2.0 offers a 10-Day certification plan for new logs to ensure end users are never left in the dark, as log formats frequently change or new devices come on the market. To convert raw logs into actionable performance log metrics, PLA 2.0 processes heavy streams of raw log data in real time, and identifies critical metrics within the data that ultimately improve visibility into the root causes of performance degradation.

“SevOne’s Performance Log Appliance has been a valuable resource for understanding the behavior of our end users, customers, applications, network and overall IT infrastructure,” said Victor Hsiang, Information Security Officer at GATX. “I expect PLA 2.0 will provide the ability to uncover real-time trends and event activity that will help us reveal hidden issues — leading to improved IT services with fewer problems and improved availability.”

Additional key benefits of the SevOne PLA 2.0 include:

  • Receiving proactive alerts of customer and end-user behavioral trends
  • Decreasing time to troubleshoot and repair known issues
  • Understanding the impact of configuration changes on application performance

“SevOne is advancing the field of log analytics by moving beyond traditional log search. For most operations teams, log analytics can mean manual searches for relevant logs, extensive amounts of time reviewing and compiling log reports, and manually correlating performance metrics with logs across multiple tools or interfaces,” said Shamus McGillicuddy,‎ Senior Analyst, Network Management at Enterprise Management Associates. “SevOne addresses all of those problems and extracts raw log data in real time then automatically correlates it to performance events, eliminating the need for search in your process.”
