Elastic And Optimyze Join Forces to Deliver Continuous Profiling of Infrastructure, Applications and Services

Unifying the Pillars of Observability—Metrics, Logs and Traces—with Continuous Profiling Capabilities to Deliver Actionable Insights to Customers

  • Providing frictionless whole-system continuous profiling to eliminate blind spots and reduce MTTD and MTTR

  • Delivering visibility into cloud native environments and dependencies with low performance overhead

  • Accelerating Elastic’s vision to enable customers to both observe and protect their data on one unified platform

Elastic , the company behind Elasticsearch and the Elastic Stack, announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Optimyze, an “always on” continuous profiling platform for infrastructure, applications and services, to accelerate the company’s vision for unified, actionable observability and enhance the ability for customers to detect and find root cause faster in complex distributed environments.

With deep expertise in large-scale distributed systems, Optimyze provides a simpler way to get insights into the entire IT ecosystem and eliminate blind spots with Prodfiler. Leveraging eBPF technology, Optimyze delivers innovative, whole-system continuous profiling of systems and code with low performance overhead.

Together with the recent acquisitions of Cmd and build.security, Optimyze will expand Elastic’s vision to enable customers to both observe and protect their data on one unified platform, the Elastic Search Platform. Elastic intends to integrate the Optimyze and Cmd innovations as well as the Open Policy Agent (OPA) capabilities from build.security into the Elastic Agent to deliver a simple deployment process and a unified approach to data collection for observability and security.

Optimyze provides frictionless continuous profiling, while the Elastic Search Platform delivers analytics and machine learning capabilities with the ability to correlate and contextualize profiling data with metrics, logs, and traces. The ability to unify the three pillars of observability—metrics, logs and traces—with emerging continuous profiling capabilities delivers actionable insights to customers, leading to improvements in service quality and performance while reducing MTTD (mean-time-to-detect) and MTTR (mean-time-to-resolution).
