Introducing Rocana One: IT Monitoring and Analytics up to 1TB Daily Data Volume for Free

IT Monitoring and Analytics Solution Increases Operational Efficiency by Eliminating Cost and Scale Challenges

SAN FRANCISCO – February 2, 2016 – Rocana, a pioneer applying big data to IT Operations, today announced Rocana One, a program that provides companies with their flagship product, Rocana Ops, for free for up to 1 Terabyte of daily data volume. Unlike most free IT monitoring software offers which are handicapped by both functionality and scalability limits, Rocana One provides fully-functional, feature rich IT monitoring and analytics software with unlimited data retention. Founded on the belief that organizations need to be monitoring all of their infrastructure and not be forced to cherry pick data, Rocana is making this bold move to change how IT operations teams think about data analytics at scale.

Rocana Ops offers a modern approach to IT operations monitoring, and through the Rocana One program, provides for free what other solutions often charge hundreds of thousands—or even millions of dollars—for annually. Rocana One bundles Rocana Ops, a highly scalable, fault-tolerant solution for IT operations monitoring and analysis, with community support. By including a fully functional version of Rocana Ops with unlimited data retention, Rocana One allows enterprises to get better control of their increasingly complex global IT operations through increased visibility, including the ability to go back in time and understand the root cause of any issue.

Rocana wants to free enterprises from vendors that tax IT organizations simply to store and access a company’s own mission critical data. For example, some monitoring tools offer as little as 500 Megabytes of free data indexing per day and limit available features, with data charges growing to hundreds of thousands of dollars annually when the daily volume reaches even just 500 Gigabytes of data. As data collection costs spiral out of control, customers are forced to limit both the types and amount of data they collect, often excluding data that provides critical insights into operations.

For companies struggling to bridge the divide between mission critical, legacy infrastructure and new software-defined and cloud-based strategies, excessive fees for collecting data generated by their systems is rubbing salt in the wound. Combined with an increasingly dangerous world where highly sophisticated attackers are constantly finding new vectors to penetrate enterprises, companies realize that their only defense is to better integrate monitoring data from all of their infrastructure. With solutions that tax data collection, this approach is cost-prohibitive. It’s no surprise that enterprises routinely miss important anomalies occurring throughout the organization, exposing the company to a range of security, operations and performance threats.

Rocana One is available for sign-up today. More information is available on the Rocana website at http://info.rocana.com/rocana-one-1tb-free.

Quote from Rocana CEO and Co-Founder Omer Trajman

“Today’s enterprises must have access to all data from all IT systems in order to effectively mitigate problems and identify the root cause of anomalies. Competing solutions that rely on data volumes for pricing are not solving the underlying problems that organizations now face. Rocana Ops enables companies to monitor all of their infrastructure without paying by the byte and now with Rocana One they can collect up to 1TB per day for free. If you’re a Fortune 500 company with departments collecting one Terabyte of data per day, you are spending hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars per year on something that should cost you nothing.”

Quote from Donnie Berkholz, 451 Research

“As DevOps and cloud reach the mainstream while containers continue to rise in popularity, monitoring all of this infrastructure is changing dramatically in scope, scale, and complexity,” said Donnie Berkholz, research director at 451 Research. “Rocana aims to become a central source of truth that can scale to even the largest IT environments technologically and financially to cope with today’s complex landscape.”

Quote from Herb Cunitz, Hortonworks

“With Hortonwork’s proven scale and low TCO underlying the Rocana Ops application, the Rocana One program dramatically alters the economics of the IT Operations market. Whether you are looking at IT Operations Analytics (ITOA), Operational Intelligence, or the Internet-of-Things (IoT), customers can now collect, manage, and analyze their operational data for little more than the cost of storage. By significantly lowering costs as a barrier to entry, Hortonworks and Rocana are enabling IT organizations to focus on the analytics required to drive business value and monitor the next-gen architectures in IT infrastructure.”
