SIOS Technology has been granted two new patents from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, relating to technology advancements in developing machine learning-based IT analytics for finding and resolving application performance issues in computing infrastructures such as VMware.

U.S. Patent No. 9,772,871, titled “Apparatus and method for leveraging semi-supervised machine learning for self-adjusting policies in management of a computer infrastructure,” is the first of eight core innovations developed and implemented in SIOS iQ and covered by this patent. It validates the ability of SIOS iQ to perform unsupervised learning of an environment and its behaviors for use in IT operations for purposes such as automating performance root cause analysis, while permitting human input to be used to adjust its models.

U.S. Patent No. 9,910,707, titled “Interface for orchestration and analysis of a computer environment,” covers the Graphical User Interface (GUI) design in SIOS iQ. Specifically, the GUI is configured to provide a user with a single point of view into the computer infrastructure by converging application, compute, storage, and network behavioral attributes into higher order descriptive dimensions of IT operational quality covering performance, efficiency, reliability and capacity. With this configuration, the end user to can readily review the state of the computing environment in a single glance and efficiently explore and interact with the GUI to identify issues threatening operations and obtain recommended solutions.

Jerry Melnick, President and CEO, SIOS Technology, noted, “Virtual environments supporting applications have become enormously complex over the last 10 years. The skills and resources required to manage these infrastructures simply have not kept up, compromising IT’s ability to meet business needs. Companies will need to turn to analytics solutions driven by AI and machine learning out of necessity. These next generation tools help companies understand and prevent problems that threaten service delivery, and vastly simplify and optimize their operations.”

According to Sergey Razin, Ph.D, CTO, SIOS Technology, “We’re very proud of our industry-first innovations that combine the power of machine learning with a highly intuitive interface. For the first time, using SIOS’ patented data visualization and graphical interface, users can instantaneously identify and visually see the interactions of resources across compute, storage, network and applications that are impacting their operations.”
