Rocana, a company that provides software for operational visibility, has released Rocana Ops 1.6 introducing role-based access controls (RBAC) and support for new application performance metrics (StatsD) to enable deeper visibility with greater control across the enterprise.
According to Eric Sammer, CTO and co-founder, Rocana, technologists who are leading successful organizations recognize the need for total operational visibility. The introduction of RBAC in Rocana Ops 1.6 enables greater confidence among IT leaders who want to provide the right data to the right people at the right time, and the integration of StatsD data to correlate performance across systems strengthens the total visibility provided by Rocana, he added.
With the introduction of built-in role-based access control (RBAC), Rocana Ops 1.6 offers complete with optional integration support for Active Directory services. New management capabilities around users, roles, and groups allow administrators to strike the right balance of accessibility versus control over operational data.
Administrators can create default roles for new users, while a full audit trail captures all control changes taking place within the system. Rocana Ops 1.6 features a built-in RBAC query builder that allows administrators to be visually guided through the process of access filtering so they can exercise greater control in a simple, intuitive way. Providing centralized control over who has access to certain types of data, IT can be confident in sharing data while maintaining accountability.
In addition, Rocana Ops 1.6 expands the reach of operational visibility with the integration of StatsD application performance metrics. According to Rocana, StatsD alone can generate useful application performance metrics to help identify and troubleshoot issues, but in more complex production environments businesses must be able to understand StatsD metrics in the full context of all other operational data generated in the execution stack – from application, infrastructure, and micro service log events to network data flow events.
By ingesting the aggregated application metrics from StatsD in Rocana Ops, technologists see a bigger and clearer picture of operations performance, correlating what is taking place in applications with other operational systems in order to drive greater insights and solve problems faster.
