Humio Joins the IBM Edge Ecosystem to Bring Real-Time Insights to Organizations Deploying Edge Computing

Humio’s live streaming log management platform adds scalability and real-time analytics to the IBM Edge Ecosystem

May 5th, 2020

Already a member of IBM’s Cloud Pak for Multicloud Management ecosystem, Humio is pleased to announce it is now part of the IBM Edge Application Manager Ecosystem, a platform designed to remove the complexity of the scale and variability of edge deployments, an initiative designed to help enterprises capture the opportunities of edge computing with a variety of solutions built upon IBM’s technology. Humio’s log management platform streams event data in real time to give insights on data from edge computing for retail, manufacturing, healthcare, and any other industry.

Organizations are deploying edge computing strategies to extend compute and move data storage closer to where the data is being created, and to protect a rapidly-growing number of distributed endpoints. Humio is able to manage hundreds of terabytes of logs, events, and other data a day, in real time, to monitor performance, security, and business metrics, and search for threats, incidents, and errors to discover the root cause.

Trifork operates more than 250,000 edge devices in a battlefield with IT security threads, OTA firmware updates and network infrastructure changes. We use Humio as the central component to monitor all edge devices and servers. The platform’s capabilities to drill down in data reduces the time from issue detection to solution minimizing the impact of cyberattack or unforeseen changes in network infrastructure.

IDC predicts that by 2023, half of the newly deployed on-premises infrastructure will be in critical edge locations rather than corporate datacenters, up from less than 10% today.1 Humio enables customers to prepare for this transformation with a modern, scalable log management platform and its unlimited ingest plan to allow users to store any amount of data from across distributed systems. And Humio’s index-free design leverages principles of mechanical sympathy, reducing CPU power demand and making it suited for a system made up of less-powerful, decentralized servers.

Humio collects machine data from edge devices, gateways, and servers to monitor the health of the entire infrastructure, detect security incidences, and reveal insights into the customer experience.

Humio CEO Geeta Schmidt explains how IBM and Humio provide unique business value.

We are excited to be part of the IBM Edge Ecosystem to provide observability and deliver valuable insights for data coming from every part of the enterprise. Collaborating with IBM allows us to be part of the industry-leading movement to gain intelligence from an ocean of data. While most organizations struggle to understand what’s happening at the edge, Humio’s ability to log everything at scale makes it possible for customers to monitor the performance and use of all endpoints in real time, and designed to dramatically improve their experience.

With the expansion of edge technologies, data will be created at unprecedented rates. IDC's DataSphere forecasts that the amount of data generated will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 25.8% through 2023.”1 Made with an index-free architecture and 10-20x compression technology for log and event data, Humio is situated to meet the future data scalability needs of the IBM Edge Ecosystem, providing an affordable means of observability for complex distributed systems.

Humio helps secure the infrastructure and its endpoints by providing actionable, real-time alerts, and the ability to instantly search streaming or historical data. Humio helps security response teams to quickly discover the root causes, and address problems that may otherwise prevent users from taking advantage of edge technologies.

Humio offers a view into what is happening across the network and at the edge in real time, or at any point in the past, at scale. Users can deploy Humio at a central location, or in locations near the edge.
