Jut.io just released its operations data hub into beta

Real-time correlation across your logs, metrics and events. Most organizations are being forced to stitch together a bunch of narrow operations tools to get a complete picture of what's going on in their software and SaaS offerings. Jut's operations data hub is a new approach. We've built a streaming analytics platform that allows you to stream in your logs, metrics, and events into one unified framework and easily correlate them for better visibility into how your application is performance and what it's doing.

With Jut you can now ask questions about your system the way you want. Our dataflow language Juttle allows you to:

  • Troubleshoot and visualize logs, metrics, and events in real-time
  • Provide self-service, code-driven analytics to your entire dev and ops teams
  • Easily perform aggregations, rollups, percentiles, and group-by functions
  • Extract and store time-series metrics from logs
  • Integrate with your operations environment, including slack, pagerduty, hipchat, and more
  • Create interactive dashboards that are programmed to work exactly the way you want

You can leverage our dataflow language as a way to flexibly create analytics for your organization exactly the way you'd like. We give you full control and flexibility so that you don't hit dead ends as you explore your data. Start by bringing in data from collectd, statsd, syslog, github, and events directly from your application. Are you curious as to what you're software is doing? If so, you'll love Jut. Try us free, at any scale during open beta.
