Elastic all set to acquire Optimyze to accelerate the unified, actionable observability and enhance the ability for customers to detect and find root cause faster in complex distributed environments.
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.
Combining 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 and MTTR mean-time-to-detect and resolution
Optimyze overcomes the limitations of traditional profiling techniques to provide whole-system continuous profiling of systems and code, improving developer productivity, accelerating innovation, and delivering rich customer experiences.
The acquisition is expected to close during Elastic’s fiscal second quarter, subject to customary closing conditions.Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
