Enhancing Cisco's Data & Analytics portfolio for IOT.
On November 3, Cisco completed the acquisition of ParStream, a privately-held company based in Cologne, Germany. The company provides an analytics database, enabling customers to analyze large amounts of data and store it in near real time anywhere in the network.
As the Internet of Things becomes a reality, it's estimated that 50 billion devices and objects will be connected to the Internet by 2020. With this massive number of new connections, valuable data will be created at an even faster pace than most companies can manage.
ParStream's highly specialized database is built for IoT environments, to handle massive volumes of data no matter where the data is in the network, including at the edge. Its distinctly small footprint uses innovative compression and indexing capabilities to help customers' access data faster and at scale, analyzing and filtering billions of records instantly and getting information in near real-time. Speed is critical for helping companies to generate value from data in IoT environments.
The ParStream acquisition complements Cisco's data and analytics portfolio, enhancing Cisco's ability to provide deep analytics at the networks edge, where data is increasingly being generated in huge volumes.
