Announcing Grok for IT Analytics on AWS

NOTE: Numenta has announced a strategic partnership with Avik Partners, please read more about the future of Grok for IT Analytics.

Today is an important day for Numenta. We are pleased to announce the general availability of Grok. We will be showcasing Grok at the AWS Summit at the San Francisco Moscone Convention Center on March 26th. If you are attending, please join us in booth 100 to see a demo - and experience our breakthrough technology for anomaly detection.

As we mentioned in our February newsletter, Grok for IT Analytics monitors servers running on AWS and is the first commercial application of our groundbreaking Cortical Learning Algorithm (CLA). Grok enables IT professionals to spot anomalous system behavior in order to stay ahead of problems and prevent business downtime, and to substantially reduce annoying false positives generated by threshold based systems.

What makes us different is the powerful science behind our technology, enabling Grok to identify unusual patterns that many other monitoring tools may miss and to automatically learn changes in its environment without human intervention. We encourage you to read our new whitepaper [The Science of Anomaly Detection](/assets/pdf/whitepapers/Numenta White Paper - Science of Anomaly Detection.pdf) for details and examples of how Grok does its magic.

Since our soft launch in February, our team has added valuable new features based on customer feedback:

  • Monitoring of AWS Auto-Scaling Groups
  • Monitoring of logically-related server clusters
  • Improved user-controlled notifications
  • Addition of a command line interface tool
  • Improved mobile interface on Android devices
  • Ability to ingest any streaming data source via custom metrics

If you are an IT professional or just wanted to explore Grok, we have several options to make it easy to get started. Grok is available here:

We also invite you to provide your feedback. Be sure to send us details on anomalies that Grok found that you would otherwise not have seen!
And let us know about features you’d like to have us implement in order to make Grok more useful.

To support our launch, we have upgraded our website and made a number of helpful resources available.

Thanks for your continued interest and support. We look forward to hearing how you like Grok.
