Boundary, a provider of monitoring solutions for big data applications, announced the general availability of the Boundary Platform, a SaaS solution that enables organizations to deliver continuous quality of service and enhance their operational agility.

Boundary addresses two critical challenges faced by DevOps professionals: the need to immediately see and understand the impact of a rapidly changing applications together with a significantly higher degree of visibility for monitoring big data architectures.

“Simply put, it’s time to rethink monitoring,” said Gary Read, CEO of Boundary. “The rise of Big Data and the need for Operational Agility have created entirely new computing stacks, which have in turn caused a great need for a capable monitoring tool that takes an application-centric view as opposed to a device-centric view. Boundary is offering a solution that watches all of the data all of the time and delivers critical insights to users on a second by second basis.”

Boundary’s approach to monitoring is aimed at organizations with modern IT architectures that are currently struggling to monitor their Big Data applications for crucial insights into key behaviors and patterns.

The company’s approach focuses on improving the four major tenets of monitoring:

* Data Collection (metrics) – collect all the data all the time instead of sampling

* Advanced Analytics – meaningful analytics to help give customers rapid insights into massive amounts of monitoring metrics

* Application Centric View – monitor how all of the tiers of the application interact rather than looking at the performance of individual servers, monitor applications built using components and languages such as Hadoop, Cassandra, Erlang, PHP, Python, Ruby, Riak, CouchDB and others

* Real Time – redefining real-time monitoring – see the impact within seconds of the packets flowing as opposed to waiting for several minutes, be able to spot “brown outs” before “black outs” occur

Former Nimsoft CEO Gary Read has joined Boundary in January as President and CEO.
