Datameer Responds to Customer Needs to Simplify Log File Integration and
SAN MATEO, Calif.–(Business Wire)–
Datameer, Inc. (www.datameer.com) today announced DAS Log File Aggregator for
Datameer Analytics Solution (DAS), the first Hadoop-based solution for big data
that includes data source integration, storage, an analytics engine and
visualization. DAS Log File Aggregator is a new plug-in that dramatically
reduces the complexity of integrating log file data from hundreds or even
thousands of servers.
Web servers, network devices, operating systems and databases store a wealth of
information in log files. When properly aggregated, the information can offer
valuable insights into customer, user and technology behavior. However, log file
aggregation is one of the most difficult big data challenges because, in
addition to the sheer size of the data, the large number of data import jobs
that must be created to integrate this data is time consuming and difficult to
Datameer discovered that many customers in its DAS Early Adopter Program are
facing this log file aggregation issue. In response, Datameer has developed DAS
Log File Aggregator, a plug-in to DAS that makes it easy to import large numbers
of log files stored on disparate servers. Instead of having to create a separate
import job for every log file, users simply specify a list of server addresses
and log file names in a single import job to bring in all their data.
“DAS offers a highly agile approach to data integration, with no programming, no
modeling, no schema and no transformation requirements,” said Stefan Groschupf,
Datameer`s CTO. “With the addition of the DAS Log File Aggregator, our customers
now have an easy-to-use solution for large-scale log file collection as well as
integrating this data with other data sources.”
Using DAS and DAS Log File Aggregator, organizations can realize benefits such
* Improving marketing campaign results by bringing together and analyzing
customer interactions on the Web and in the call center, sales data as well as
the latest buzz about the promotion on social media sites
* Detecting security threats and fraud more quickly by understanding user
activity across infrastructure components
* Anticipating consumer demand and improving products and services through
analysis of online behavior
* Expediting return to system health by analyzing the cascading affect one
system failure has on other systems through the merger and analysis of disparate
system log files
Datameer is a co-sponsor of BigDataCamp, a Hadoop Unconference taking place on
June 28, 2010 where it will demonstrate the power of DAS and DAS Log File
DAS and the DAS Log File Aggregator will be generally available in the fall of
2010. For more information, please visit www.datameer.com.
