ChaosSearch 2.0

ChaosSearch 2.0, Industry’s First Data Lake Engine for Scalable Log Analysis, Speeds Time-To-Insights and Slashes Costs

Easily Analyzes Petabytes of Data Directly in Customer’s Own Cloud Object Storage, with Minimal Compute


BOSTON, MA – April 29, 2020 – ChaosSearch today announced its next-generation platform, ChaosSearch 2.0, the industry’s first data lake engine for scalable log analysis. ChaosSearch 2.0 instantly turns a company’s own cloud data lake into a hot, robust, and streamlined analytics engine that speeds time-to-insights and cuts log analysis costs by up to 80 percent. It uniquely enables companies to analyze petabytes of data without adding compute or performing complex, labor-intensive processes, and without limiting data retention.

Being able to analyze hundreds of terabytes to petabytes of log data is critical to keeping applications, IT systems, and cloud environments running. But conventional log and data analytics solutions—such as those built on open source toolsets like Elasticsearch – have fixed architectures that make it impossible to cost-effectively handle very large data volume and retain it for long periods. Legacy “big data” solutions like Hadoop are equally expensive and complex.

According to Thomas Hazel, Founder and CTO of ChaosSearch, “ChaosSearch 2.0 takes a completely different and entirely new approach. Built from the ground up to achieve the true promise of cloud data lakes, ChaosSearch makes it as easy for customers to get insights out of their lake as it is to dump data into it. While other solutions require DBAs and data engineers to set up new workloads, extract data from storage, manually transform it, and then load it into a vendor’s analytic database, ChaosSearch 2.0 customers simply stream any amount of data into their own Amazon S3 data lake, where our solution automatically transforms and analyzes it. Our distributed architecture and proprietary indexing and compression technologies enable businesses to gain new and better insights, quickly and at a fraction of the cost.”

Customers Agree

“With ChaosSearch, we’re able to process tens of terabytes a day of Cloudflare log data without worrying about performance or system failure,” said Stephen Salinas, Engineering Lead at Hubspot, whose sales and marketing SaaS platform is used by more than 73,400 customers.

“ChaosSearch powers our enterprise log analytics and is a critical piece of the infrastructure for processing tens of terabytes per day of our customers’ log data. We’ve been very pleased with the performance, reliability and cost of ChaosSearch. As Armor grows and evolves, we plan on expanding our use of ChaosSearch to other areas at Armor. We are very happy with them as a trusted partner,” said Josh Bosquez, CTO at Armor, a global cybersecurity company with more than 1,000 customers in 42 countries.
