Google Ventures-backed Rocana Launches "Rocana Ops"

Rocana Ops Is the First Product to Market Using Big Data and Advanced Analytics to Address $20 Billion Dollar IT Operations Management Market

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 30, 2015) - Rocana, a pioneer in Big Data for IT Operations, today announced Rocana Ops, a new product that gives IT administrators the power to monitor their full stack application, infrastructure and security at a global scale using a new approach, coined "Augmented IT Operations."

Rocana Ops visually guides IT administrators to the root cause of performance or security issues at any scale and complexity, by giving administrators a full view of their IT infrastructure. Rocana Ops helps IT identify and resolve underlying issues in real-time versus weeks, to maintain business critical SLAs and prevent security breaches in sprawling IT infrastructure.

What is Augmented IT Operations?

Augmented IT Operations is the application of Big Data, advanced analytics, and visualizations to DevOps. Today's modern technology infrastructure has changed drastically from when applications were delivered in silos. Where once IT operators only had to manage self-contained, isolated systems such as Bank ATM networks, today they need to support complex cloud-based and integrated applications such as mobile check deposit. The technologies used to run modern applications require a new approach to operations -- one that learns about your infrastructure and assists IT operators with diagnostics and troubleshooting.

In the past, performance and security issues required teams of IT administrators to spend weeks searching through silos of spotty data, often realizing that the critical information they need was never collected. The result was increased downtime and business critical security breaches. Rocana Ops solves these problems by collecting detailed data from all software and hardware infrastructure, using Big Data and advanced analytics to visually guide IT operators to the root cause of any problem. With Rocana Ops system administrators do not need to be development experts, manually search through log files in hopes of finding the root cause of issues. Companies using Rocana Ops for Augmented IT Operations have total awareness of their complex infrastructure and are able to regain control of their IT.

"New technologies such as Hadoop, OpenStack and Docker have tremendous promise and yet introducing these technologies into existing IT infrastructure brings unprecedented complexities," said Omer Trajman, co-founder and CEO, Rocana. "IT organizations from the CIO down no longer have visibility into which systems affect application performance or are susceptible to hackers. Drawing on our experience building and operating Big Data solutions, we created Rocana Ops to visually guide IT administrators to the root cause of performance or security issues at any scale and complexity.”

Rocana Ops is available today. Pricing and licensing terms are predictable and encourage data collection and deep analysis; there are no daily limits or punitive measures for exceeding quotas. Major production deployments of Rocana Ops are already underway.
