CloudFabrix Launches Data Fabric for Observability Platforms at Cisco Live 2023 Melbourne

PLEASANTON, Calif., Dec. 8, 2023 — CloudFabrix has announced the launch of “Data Fabric for Observability” with dynamic Data Ingestion and Automation service (DIA) for the Cisco Observability Platform. CloudFabrix also demonstrated the use of this service for multiple application modules on the Cisco Observability Platform.

Cisco Observability Platform breaks operational silos to enable “experience as the new digital currency.” This innovative platform is architected around a unique entity based relationship model for observable entities. The Platform stores only relevant OpenTelemetry (OTel) data, once the entities are modeled at design time, with operational personas now able to build relationships and correlations quickly at runtime.

CloudFabrix’s Data Fabric for Observability further enhances the Cisco Observability Platform’s “mean time to insights (MTTI) and remediations” exponentially by automating the creation of these entity models based on the data discovery, contextualization and modernization both at design time and run time. This eliminates the need for manual creation of the entity model making it easier for customers to bring any data into the Cisco Observability Platform.

CloudFabrix’s Data Fabric for all your Observability Data

CloudFabrix’s Data Fabric specifically solves these data challenges with its dynamic Data Ingestion and Automation (DIA) service:

  • DIA service integrates with disparate data sources.
  • Automates data normalization, contextualization (enrichment) and builds relationships and generates entity models at design time, using bot-based pipelines.
  • Transforms non-OTel data into OTel (OpenTelemetry with enrichment) and ingests only relevant telemetry corresponding to the entity models in the Cisco Observability Platform.
  • Enables experimentation and visualization with the models with sample data and then ingests telemetry in run time with pipelines.

This service is now available from Cisco (partners) for customers with hybrid deployments and any kind of custom data sources and will enable rapid data ingestion in the Cisco Observability Platform for expedited business outcomes.

CloudFabrix demonstrated this service with the generation of two application modules – Asset Intelligence and Operational Intelligence which were operational in days as opposed to weeks.

With this service CloudFabrix now has multiple application modules powered by the Cisco Observability Platform. A Free trial is available here.

  • vSphere Observability – targeted towards VM and IT admins, with VMware NSX
  • Campus Analytics – targeted for Network Operators and CxO’s
  • SAP Observability – targeted towards SAP Basis and IT admins

“CloudFabrix’s Data Fabric for Observability complements Cisco Observability Platform particularly for hybrid workloads and non-OpenTelemetry (OTel) compliant data sources. The ability to collect data from disparate data sources, create entity-based relationships and convert into OTel format for ingestion validates and demonstrates the extensibility and flexibility of the Cisco Observability Platform,” said Carlos Pereira, Fellow & Chief Architect, Cisco.
