It can be time consuming to setup a cluster on-premises, in the cloud, or as a hybrid and it can also open new security threats and cause maintenance headaches and performance issues. Many installations can be made to work with effort; however simple changes in workloads or tools sets can bring the cluster performance to its knees, or worse, take the cluster off-line. Problems created during one-off installations are often hard to debug and lead to excessive professional service bills later.
To ease management of these types of environments and ensure consistency the industry is quickly adopting Docker containers and Kubernetes to manage resources. However, tools like Splunk have stateful features and some tools like Enterprise Security or ITSI cannot run in containers today. These mixed environments require careful consideration during deployment.
Based on the input using a simple spreadsheet describing the environment and needs, our proprietary software generates custom scripts and Ansible playbooks which will create the proper Docker containers, security settings, key installations, and connections in the proper order so that your system will work out of the box with the industry’s best performance. When modifications are needed, the spreadsheet can be modified, or use the deployment playbooks directly to ensure consistency. For tools that are supported in Kubernetes, Paladian will set up the environment to manage the platform using the resource manager simplifying its long-term management with the needed HELM files. In all cases we offer tools to optimize storage failover to improve the cluster reliability.
Our tightly coupled hardware and software along with industry leading NVMe performance provides you the consistent, reliable, record breaking responses that will allow your analysts to focus on getting the maximum value from your data.
Our cluster fabric performance allows you to get the best server utilization in the industry requiring dramatically less resources than the competition.
As your needs evolve, you can pull down additional software modules which will integrate easily into your environment without the hassle of having to interface with sales.
The world of IoT today is a patchwork of open source and proprietary tools with pockets of various competing software management tools and a handful of software connectors to SIEM tools for assessing issues and remediation in the SOC (Security Operation Center). In addition, the OT (Operational Technology) area is seeing a groundswell of innovation related to managing operations from a centralized location and improving security postures which makes it even more difficult for customers to determine which combination of tools is best for their needs, and what works seamlessly.
Due to latency and bandwidth issues, OT data needs to reside on-premises. However, there is tremendous benefit to pulling together the OT data from around the factory(s) to one central point for management, security, and operational optimization. Data kept on the shop floor in proprietary data historians limits the customer’s ability to munge data and to run factory wide queries. Organized threat response, asset management, and policy enforcement is painful when the data is distributed in silos around the infrastructure, is difficult to access, and is often limited in timeframe.
In one platform, Paladian provides a centralized management that quickly integrates into an ICS environment and provides all the tools, data and performance a customer needs to safely control and manage multiple factories. Palladian’s PD2001-IoT uses a Kepware IoT front end with IOX data management environment and an open-source data historian that can manage up to petabytes of information. When combined with ICS products like Cisco’s Cyber Vision, and SIEM tools like Splunk, Paladian offers a completely integrated ICS IoT platform with the industry’s highest performance.
