Numenta, Inc. Releases Grok for IT Analytics on Amazon Web Services

Numenta Inc. announced the commercial availability of Grok for IT Analytics on Amazon Web Services in the AWS Marketplace. Grok anomaly detection leverages sophisticated machine intelligence algorithms to enable new insights into critical IT systems. Grok automatically learns complex patterns and then highlights unusual behavior. As software topologies and usage patterns change, Grok continuously learns and adapts, eliminating the need for frequent resetting of thresholds. Visualization of Grok output is displayed on a constantly updated mobile device, enabling IT professionals to assess the health of their systems anytime, anywhere. Using Grok, IT operators can better prevent business downtime while reducing false positives. Grok is the first commercial application of Numenta's groundbreaking Cortical Learning Algorithm (CLA), biologically inspired algorithms for machine intelligence. The core CLA technology is ideal for large-scale analysis of continuously streaming datasets and excels at modeling and predicting patterns in data. Grok features include: monitoring of performance and health of AWS environments or other systems; automatic modeling to determine normal patterns; automatic identification and ranking of unusual patterns; continuous learning of new patterns as environments evolve no need for manual threshold setting; notification to user when an anomaly occurs; output displayed graphically on an Android mobile device; simple setup via a web-based or command-line interface and support for AWS auto-scaling groups and logical clusters. Grok is available in two editions: Grok Free Edition; supports up to 10 AWS instances or custom metrics and Grok Standard Edition; supports up to 200 AWS instances or custom metrics.
