For the past 6 years, we’ve built a strong partnership with VMware to deliver dozens of our metric monitoring integrations to VMware vRealize® Operations customers. Over that time, the True Visibility Suite of products has become a critical piece of the vRealize Operations landscape. It unlocks the power of vRealize Operations for customers looking to manage their entire enterprise stack from a single tool. Due to the success of the relationship and a desire to provide a seamless process for our shared customers, VMware acquired the True Visibility Suite from Blue Medora and will move forward with True Visibility Suite as a VMware solution. We at Blue Medora couldn’t be happier to see this powerful collection of tools reach more VMware customers.
So what’s next for Blue Medora?
Over the past several years, apart from our VMware business, Blue Medora has launched a number of market defining products, most recently BindPlane. BindPlane is the first of its kind monitoring integration as a service platform. BindPlane brings hundreds of metrics and monitoring integrations to half a dozen monitoring platforms.
In addition to our expertise in monitoring metrics, we have entered the log management space with BindPlace for Logs, a fully managed solution for gathering and shipping logs to your preferred destination.
What we’ve found after years of laser focus on the monitoring space and after talking to hundreds of customers is that there’s a gap in the log management space. Logs are a struggle for most organizations, the growth in log data has been exponential and the tools to monitor logs haven’t kept up with that expansion. Some of the largest organizations in the world are struggling to solve the challenge of shipping terabytes of log data every day, or every hour. The bottleneck is often at the agent level. We’ve been working hand in hand with some of our largest customers to develop a new, high performance, highly configurable, open source log agent capable of meeting their needs. We’re pleased to announce that today it’s available for download.
We’re excited to share this with you and as a way of marking this transition, Blue Medora is launching observIQ (www.observIQLabs.com). At observIQ we’re focused on solving the log data acquisition challenges through innovative open source products that are designed with performance and configurability first.
The open source log agent is the first product we’re releasing. Architected from the ground up for high performance, the agent is written in Go, optimized for low resource utilization, and designed to have even greater configurability and customizability than legacy agents. We’ve released an initial set of input and output plugins to support the most common workloads and will be releasing new plugins weekly.
Over the next few months, we’ll be launching observIQ Cloud which provides remote configuration, simplified deployment, and best-of-class visualization for a full log solution. Click here to join the beta.
At observIQ we’re producing solutions by engineers for engineers and we love hearing from our customers so connect with us, give our products a try, or consider working here by emailing careers if you share our passion for Observability!
