  1. 1. | |JULY 2014 5CIOReview| |JULY 2014 4CIOReview M odern day enterprises are veering towards cloud, IoT and virtual environments to store and disseminate enormous data volumes regardless of their impact on critical infrastructure performance. With the advent of these trends, Data centers are manifesting commendable growth in the areas of integrated systems, network facilities and security needs of the organizations. These prevalent technologies of today have triggered the demand for colocation services, automation, redundancy, network uptime, and high-performance computing from the data center solution providers. Data center companies have exhibited a high level of resilience and adapted to the changing power and cooling requirements of organizations. In order to enhance enterprise agility, improve network efficiency, and maintain high standards of security, several innovative players in the industry are delivering cutting- edge solutions that ensure visibility, cost savings and automation in the networks. This issue showcases data center companies that havea host of products aimed at driving such goals by eliminating the challenges that arise during integration and configuration operations, optimization routines, and installation. However, many CIOs find it extremely challenging to navigate into the complex and fragmented data center landscape when looking for the right service provider to aid them with consulting, implementation, and support. In this edition of CIO Review, we bring to you “The 20 Most Promising Data Center Solutions Providers of 2015,” featuring the best solution and service providers offering tools and services available on the Data Center platform. The companies listed here showcase extensive business knowledge and innovative strategies combined with talent base across locations. A distinguished panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, CMOs, VCs, analysts and CIO Review editorial board has selected the top players from over three hundred companies.

CIOREVIEW.COMMAY 27 - 2015DATA CENTER SPECIAL T h e N a v i g a t o r f o r E n t e r p r i s e S o l u t i o n s 20 Most Promising Data Center Solution Providers 2015 Company: Evolven Description: A technology company that provides IT Operations Analytics solutions for enterprise businesses. Key Person: Sasha Gilenson, CEO & Co-founder Website: www.evolven.com Evolven recognized by magazine as Pradeep Shankar An annual listing of 20 companies that are in the forefront of tackling Data Center Technology challenges and impacting the marketplace. Editor-in-Chief | |May 2015 36CIOReview D uring a 13 year tenure at Mercury (acquired by HP), Sasha Gilenson, current CEO of Evolven, saw the way enterprises were increasingly facing issues with critical business systems either underperforming or failing. He witnessed the ways in which gaps in IT Operations created problems, and looked at it from a new perspective. Just as Google came and revolutionized the world of Internet search, Sasha envisioned a similar revolutionary approach for handling the abundant data that IT teams faced in maintaining performance and availability of their business operations. “Evolven applies a new IT Operations Analytics (ITOA) approach to the critical IT operations challenges in on-premise and hybrid cloud environments, turning the big data generated by operations of IT environments into actionable insights,” says Gilenson. The Evolven approach addresses IT pain points with a Blended Analytics solution that extracts insights and draws intelligent correlations from the various types of data produced by multiple systems across IT silos. Evolven provides key IT decision makers with the ability to see more than the individual parts and finally get the whole picture, by blending data from such varied sources as log files, changes to configuration, network traffic, performance metrics, and alerts from applications and other types of data through a prism of change. Evolven’s advanced analytics applies machine learning to process and cross-correlate millions of data points in near real-time, identifying unknown and advanced threats across petabytes of machine data. Evolven’s Blended Analytics analyzes connected data to identify abnormal conditions or gradual trends. Imbued with cross- correlation and statistical anomaly detection, Evolven IT Operations Analytics Engine can send timely alerts when anomalies appear, and pinpoint strange behavior in environments before a full-fledged incident occurs. IT specialists can realize why environments are not operating as expected, and take the necessary steps to resolve issues before their users are impacted. In 2012, VSE, a major defense contractor, underwent significant changes when it moved its offices and built a brand new state-of-the-art, fully virtualized data center. As the servers were virtualized and copied to the new data center, VSE not only needed to verify that no data was lost during the transition, but also faced major risks to environment stability. VSE ultimately selected Evolven’s IT Operations Analytics. “It took just minutes for us to learn the basic functionalities of it. There were no special training requirements, and it is very easy to use. We were able to roll it out in a day," says VSE's Vice President and CIO, Dave Chivers. While there are many players in the market for IT management systems, each of them strongly believe that the answer to an organization's problems can be found only in the area that their product examines. Few provide a comprehensive look at the IT environment, considering a variety of data sources, and make it possible for IT staff to find the root cause of performance anomalies. Moving forward, Evolven aims to expand its services and global footprint. With Evolven, the industry can apply greater intelligence to the data center and cloud. “Blended Analytics will drive this intelligence, allowing us to raise the level of IT automation to include self-healing and self- administration of environments. Within 5 to 10 years, we will see multiple vertical analytics that will merge into a unified analytics layer to serve as the ‘brain’ of automated IT environments. As a pioneer and innovator of the ITOA space, our goal is to provide this brain,” concludes Gilenson.
