Librato Debuts Composite Metrics for Instant Insight

Librato, the cloud-based platform that puts the Zen into monitoring, is announcing the release of composite metrics, a powerful new capability that lets users derive rapid insights from the data they are collecting. Librato’s composite metrics make it possible to specify complex queries against real-time metrics, allowing users to compare, transform and aggregate them, in the same way that data-query languages enable the mining of data in a database or data warehouse.

“Data is only as valuable as the actionable insights you can surface from it,” said Joseph Ruscio, CTO and co-founder of Librato. “Composite metrics enable our users to define and save complex, custom analyses on their metrics and visualize the results. They’re a big step forward for operations teams, helping them to find the answers they need and quickly respond to any situation.”

Using composite metrics it is possible to perform analyses on existing “raw” data streams and visualize the result, in real-time, on instruments and dashboards, precluding the need for off-line calculations and giving immediate insight in the status of the operation being monitored.

"Since we began using Librato over a year ago, we've made it the focal point for visualizing the operations that help to drive our business,” said Weston Jossey, devOps manager of Tapjoy. “Composite metrics was another great piece in the puzzle for us, especially when looking into how we are performing against historic metrics."

Librato’s monitoring platform is dedicated to helping development and operations teams discover latent or changing conditions at the earliest possible time and minimize the time required to find and remediate the root cause before it impacts service. Composite metrics provides a powerful tool in fulfilling this mission, making it possible to directly visualize sophisticated queries that span multiple inputs.

"With data streaming in from different applications, with different semantics, from ephemeral infrastructure, we need to be able to quickly adapt our interpretation of the data as problems and opportunities arise, ” said Rhodri Pugh, principal developer of Scottish American. “In the highly competitive insurance industry, we're finding that composite metrics gives us the powerful and flexible language we need to rapidly diagnose and capitalize on the varied data our systems constantly provide."

"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacenter.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs – without configuration complexity.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
