The jKool SaaS automatically visualizes time-series data from any RESTful source as well those from Java, Log4j, Logback, SLF4J, Servlets, Syslog and Apache Spark in real-time. Using SaaS, there are no servers, database or schemas to manage. jKool’s real-time scorecard provides immediate insight to developers, DevOps users and business analysts who can now make split-second decisions based on real-time, data-in-motion such as orders, clicks, payments, claims, and searches as well as compare this to historical data, data-at-rest. They learn what they didn’t already know, take advantage of perishable insights, detect preventable losses and uncover new opportunities.
jKool visualization includes behavior, performance, location and topology displayed on a real-time dashboard. Users can subscribe to topics of interest or interactively ask a question using an easy-to-use, English-like query language. jKool, a multi-tenant solution is built on an Apache open-source foundation including: the NoSQL database Cassandra and Solr from DataStax, along with Kafka, Spark and STORM all orchestrated in-concert via jKool FatPipes™ technology.
“Until recently, analyzing and visualizing streaming data in real-time with the ability to compare that to historical data was just not possible for most businesses,” said Charley Rich, vice president of product management at jKool. “jKool’s new RESTful API for streaming time-series data makes it easy for DevOps to add real-time analysis and visualization to their applications. jKool analyzes data in-memory, offers extreme scalability and provides you with the vital information you need to act now.”
