Ever since we started Pattern Insight, our vision has been to change how people search, mine and analyze their vast amounts of IT and Engineering data. Log Insight, a log analytics product, is the culmination of our efforts aiming at management and real time operational analytics for IT data regardless of scale. Today, I am very pleased to announce that Log Insight, together with its technology and team, have been acquired by VMware. We are very excited for the opportunity to accelerate our vision and maximize the impact of our technology.
The Opportunity Ahead
Cloud Computing and virtualization make IT environments more efficient. At the same time, infrastructure and applications grow larger and more complex. The need to rely on data to manage them and make better decisions becomes even more pressing. Log Insight combines analytics and log management technology and has the ability to analyze vast amounts of machine-generated data in real time and lead administrators to the root cause of problems very quickly. Furthermore, it can provide insights on emerging trends and hidden patterns revealing issues before they even manifest.
We anticipate that the potential of the Log Insight technology will be maximized through this acquisition. VMware is ideally positioned in the middle of two of the most important shifts in IT in the recent years, virtualization and Cloud Computing. It therefore provides the perfect home for Log Insight and the team to continue innovating.
Finally, a Thank You Note
I would like to thank all our customers who, since the early stages of Pattern Insight, trusted a startup out of the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and helped us grow Pattern Insight to a successful and fast growing business. Today our customers include some of the biggest technology companies in the world. We remain committed to their success and will continue to support and expand our Code Insight product.
Finally, I would like to thank my co-founders, our investors and more importantly the excellent team that worked together to build such great products.
