Provides Real-Time “Interoperability of Things” for the Internet of Things

San Francisco, CA — April 28, 2015 — Talksum Inc., a leader in high-speed data processing and management solutions, today announced its Embedded Talksum Data Stream Router (eTDSR) solution. The eTDSR acts upon incoming events from IoT devices, provides real-time mixed-signal analysis of the data at the remote sites (in the field), and then routes it to data centers for further analysis, decisioning, and action.

The eTDSR, which is an extension of the award-winning, hardware-based Talksum Data Stream Router (TDSR), eliminates time delays (i.e., lag) while processing massive amounts of data. Lag can otherwise financially impact enterprises, public utilities, and private entities with delayed reports, missed anomalies, operational inefficiencies, policy and security violations, disaster and recovery costs, and lost opportunities.

The current approach of working with data is to first store it, and then understand it. This approach brings complexity, implementation expense, lack of scalability, and stability concerns. The eTDSR solution overcomes these challenges by flipping the current approach to first understand the data and immediately act upon it in real time, before storing. Logic, therefore, can be applied early in the process so the data can be acted upon in real time.

Market examples include:

  • Energy, including traditional power generation, local power (e.g., solar panels, windmills), smart building systems, and smart meters, where the eTDSR can help with efficiency, anomalies, reports, and billing.
  • Medical, including hospitals, CDC, medical devices, and patients, where the eTDSR can help with life-saving alerts, security, regulatory compliance, and insurance matters.
  • Transportation, including roads, trains, cars, first responders, and drivers, where the eTDSR can be used to handle traffic congestion, collisions, vehicle data, emergency response, roadside assistance, regulatory and government compliance, industry standards, and policy control.

As a complete large-scale solution, the remote-site eTDSR can be combined with the data center level Talksum Data Stream Router (TDSR) to bring real-time decisioning to IoT and Smart Cities.

“The Internet of Things market is estimated to grow to over $7 trillion in 2020, and according to a Gartner report, this enormous increase in IoT will create data center challenges in the areas of security, privacy, consumer and enterprise data, storage management, and data center network bandwidth,” said Alex Varshavsky, founder and CEO of Talksum. “In addition to these future challenges, today’s industry focuses on collecting large amounts of data from IoT devices, storing the data in a cloud, and then attempting to build the correlation of events. In most cases, the map reduction and analytical process times mean the data can only be used for probabilistic and statistical models rather than reflect real-time actionable insights. The eTDSR, in conjunction with the TDSR, overcomes all of these challenges.”

Talksum Incorporates Universal Logging Profile in Data Stream Router

« Back to Press Releases

San Francisco, CA — December 2, 2014 — Talksum Inc., a leader in high-speed data processing and management solutions, today announced universal logging profile (ULP) capability in its flagship Talksum Data Stream Router (TDSR), which helps data centers manage Big Data for applications that require massive amounts of real-time processing.

The ULP enables the TDSR to ingest inordinate amounts of data from many disparate sources, bring it together, and normalize it to a common event expression, so that real-time decisions and actions can be taken on the output side.

Log message structures in events today consist of many attributes, such as time, host, group ID, user ID, and so on. Each attribute has different logging formats for different protocols, such as RFC-3164 (syslog), RFC-5424 (rsyslog), Lumberjack (RH7), Common Logging Format (NCSA), and string messages (ASCII), to name a few. The ULP performs inline conversion of semantic context to syntactical values ready for counts, correlations, and analytics. Multiple data stream views are created as outputs to the downstream consumer – that is, reporting dashboard, data science group, alerts, business intelligence tools, and so on.

The approach of the Talksum solution is to understand the data before it is stored, as opposed to today’s approach of storing first, and then trying to figure out what is in the data.

“Universal Logging Profile ensures that our customers get a common holistic view of their entire data flow through their data center,” said Dale Russell, CTO of Talksum. “It allows the TDSR to bring in all of the important data types, data points, metrics, and so on, with different formatting protocols and transports, into a common manageable data stream that can be output for real-time decisions and actions.”

The high-speed TDSR handles most types of structured and unstructured disparate data from any source over the network. It formats and transforms the data in real time, data reduces, aggregates, and enriches the data by correlating events with other external sources, and contextually routes actionable data to any downstream system, including BI tools, analytics systems, databases, and other storage.

Talksum has taken a unique approach to real-time data management by combining the latest developments of hardware and efficient inline processing and algorithms. The TDSR exceeds speeds necessary to handle Big Data initiatives of today and tomorrow, and processes millions of events per second (tens of billions of events per day) to keep pace with velocity. In addition, since it is a hardware-configured unit that fits into an existing rack, it simplifies the data management process and avoids the need for specialized skills and custom code, making it easy to monitor and analyze data in real time while reducing the cost of acquisition, ETL, and integration.

Talksum Announces 2100 Series Data Stream Router Proof-of-Concept Trial for Strategic Client Initiative

« Back to Press Releases

San Francisco, CA — October 1, 2014 —Talksum Inc., a leader in high-speed data processing and management solutions, today announced a proof-of-concept (POC) trial offering for its flagship 2100 Series Data Stream Router. The strategic client initiative is targeted toward companies that deal with massive amounts of time-sensitive, and often mission-critical, data movement within their data centers.

For a limited time, the POC offer will allow enterprise clients to trial the Talksum Data Stream Router (TDSR) in the Talksum labs to see how it will work for their specific use cases. The primary objective of the POC is to demonstrate the viability and enhanced performance of the Talksum 2100 Series for streaming data, including actionable alerts, within a large data center – from disparate data ingest into the TDSR to different types of targeted storage platforms that are currently in use.

The Talksum 2100 Series gives data centers a highly efficient, secure approach to data processing, management, and analytics. Designed to accelerate real-time decisions, the Talksum 2100 Series improves data acquisition and transformation and converts any type of structured and unstructured data into flexibly managed event streams. In addition, the highly configurable router provides actionable data and reduced reporting latency of critical events to seconds – all of which are important aspects for any data center and data center infrastructure management (DCIM) system.

Talksum will guarantee the performance and functionality of the TDSR in meeting the respective POC requirements.

“We feel that the Talksum 2100 Series POC is a win-win for large data centers to trial our product without risk and with a huge upside,” said Joe Hutchinson, Talksum vice president of worldwide sales. “We are so confident that the TDSR will exceed expectations and become a hot item for any data center that we will only be offering this POC for a limited time.”
