Era Software Introduces EraStreams for Scalable and Cost-Effective Observability Data Management

Era Software announced EraStreams private beta, a no-code data pipeline that lets users integrate, transform, and route observability data to EraSearch, the company's petabyte-scale log management platform, and third-party monitoring tools.

Era Software is broadening the scope of its log management solution and fitting into more of the observability stack. With a time series database and object storage under the hood, the company's approach to observability data management resolves scale, performance, and cost issues associated with running applications on modern architectures, including cloud, containers, and microservices.

EraStreams complements EraSearch to optimize cost-performance and is flexible to integrate into existing DevOps workflows and tools. For IT teams, including DevOps and SRE, this means managing log data costs confidently by filtering less relevant data for faster troubleshooting while extracting useful data automatically or through powerful filters.

"Our vision is to be the observability data management choice for organizations dealing with massive volumes of observability data," said Todd Persen, co-founder and chief executive officer, Era Software. "The unveiling of EraStreams today advances this vision with a data pipeline to help you manage observability costs and improve troubleshooting effectiveness. It gives you real-time insights into application and system performance and adds another component to our scalable, cost-effective observability data management."

For security teams with high log management costs and performance challenges using expensive SIEM solutions, EraStreams transforms and routes optimized datasets to a SIEM for security analytics and offers an option to send raw data to EraSearch for cost-efficient log management. If personally identifiable information (PII) poses a security risk, teams can protect sensitive data by masking PII before writing to disk. Data managed in EraSearch can be efficiently retrieved through its observability data rehydration capability when needed for investigations or threat hunting.

With EraStreams, IT and security teams can optimize raw data into insights and send only a subset of data to expensive monitoring systems while routing the full datasets to EraSearch, other tools, or storage to keep costs low. When used with EraSearch, EraStreams reduces the total cost of ownership for existing log management solutions while preserving historical information in EraSearch for low-cost object storage and fast search and query.

"Today, some companies may generate over 100 terabytes of log data per day, and scale and pricing prevent many organizations from ingesting more data," added Persen. "With EraSearch and EraStreams, we can help you manage high volumes of data at a lower cost per GB ingested - we give you the ability to ingest and make the data queryable in real time. You should be able to find a needle in the haystack. With EraSearch and EraStreams, you can economically ingest a petabyte of log data daily with an average response time of less than 500 milliseconds."
