Startup takes Big Data approach to data center troubleshooting


An Atlanta-based startup is tackling the IT complexity problem with a big data approach, hoping partnerships with scores of point solution providers can yield unprecedented insight on the source of performance problems.

OpsDataStore is a data ingestion layer and analytics engine that grabs information from a wide variety of operating systems, virtualization platforms, systems management utilities and performance monitors and stores it in a Cassandra NoSQL database for analysis using the Apache Spark analytics engine and Apache Kafka messaging bus. The result is a “continuously updated topology map of the entire environment over time,” the company said. CEO Bernd Harzog called it a “common data back-end for all management software.”

The tricky part of what OpsDataStore is doing is getting the data in the first place. The company needs to convince other platform providers to map their configuration and reporting data to its integration layer, and there are potentially hundreds of sources. The current Tower of Babel of systems information is what makes management so difficult, Harzog said.
