Datacenter Monitoring for Improving Insight and Efficiency

Objective

We have developed a novel monitoring mechanism for the datacenter that has the potential to be a holistic monitoring solution that will help optimize day-to-day operations, identify business opportunities, reduce operational expenses, and reduce carbon footprint. The key idea is to monitor the types and the latencies of the requests coming in into the datacenter, and correlate the request stream with the hardware resources used in the datacenter. Although conceptually simple, this monitoring solution provides a wealth of invaluable information and creates a number of opportunities, both at the technical and business side, which no other existing monitoring solution offers.
In this project, we will study the broader market, for where to exploit the technology, ranging from web application companies, to datacenter and cloud providers, to datacenter owners; define business needs and requirements; evaluate the technology across market segments with friendly customers; and develop an IP portfolio and business plan. The end result of the project is to create the essential conditions to start the early commercial stage of this idea.
