ProtectWise shifts network security to the cloud to provide complete visibility and detection of enterprise threats and incident response. Built entirely on AWS, the ProtectWise grid has the unique ability to create an unlimited retention window with full-fidelity forensics, automated retrospection, and advanced visualization. To enable customers to store petabytes of networking data and analyze it in seconds, they use Apache Solr and Apache Cassandra to analyze encrypted raw packet data and metadata about network packets—billions of items per day. Maintaining an architecture to handle a large volume of data requires an innovative architecture at a cost-effective standpoint. In this session, you learn how ProjectWise has optimized their solution on AWS using hot, warm, and cold shards across EC2 instance store, Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS), and Amazon S3 for cost and scalability.
