Swim Continuum 4.1 is designed to analyze exabytes of streaming events and enable decision making at the speed of change
CAMPBELL, CA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–swim, developers of the industry’s first open-core platform for continuous intelligence at scale, today announced Swim Continuum 4.1. The newly enhanced product introduces a new UI framework optimized for heavy streaming applications and enables DevOps teams to ensure peak performance for event-driven applications. The company also announced more Funding from Verizon Ventures LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Verizon Communications Inc., a Swim customer, and existing investors. The new funds will be used to expand the company’s engineering, sales and marketing teams.
“At Verizon Ventures, we support technologies that enable next-generation wireless communications and a variety of 5G services,” said Kristina Serafim, managing director, Verizon Ventures. “Swim’s technology addresses the issues faced by legacy data streaming and processing practices. The enterprise-class application layer enables organizations to integrate existing data and unlock real-time analytics for real-time operational decisions by business leaders. We look forward to working with the leadership team as Swim technology advances.”
Moving at the speed of change
Designed to meet the most demanding requirements, Swim Continuum 4.1 has been successfully deployed in production to analyze exabytes of streaming events. Its new powerful UI framework is capable of continuously updating the application UI with streaming data from millions of backend objects, unlike other UI frameworks that are hampered by REST and UI components on request/ Render response base. Swim Continuum can be used for dashboard views, but the platform excels at generating map views from real-time mapping layers driven by Swim’s underlying, purpose-built rendering engine capable of handling a large number of propagated state changes is optimized.
“We are committed to improving resilience and service delivery for utilities and cities through the best real-time view and prediction of usage patterns and available resources in their connected IoT devices,” said Stefan Zschiegner, vice president of outcomes product management, Itron. “Swim Continuum’s active UI framework makes it easy to write applications that benefit our customers and give them the insights they need to optimally manage their assets and achieve their goals, whether it’s increasing reliability the edge of the power grid, reducing the carbon footprint or building a smart energy/city grid.”
Other new features in Swim Continuum 4.1 include:
- End-to-end application and infrastructure management capabilities – Provide DevOps teams with a simple Java developer experience that enables developers to write and test applications on a laptop, and then deploy code unmodified to hundreds or thousands of runtime instances in edge and cloud environments. Swim Continuum 4.1 automatically assembles an application on-the-fly from raw streaming data as a data flow diagram of linked, stateful microservices called Web Agents – similar to digital twins of data sources.
- Powerful management level tools – Enable Ops teams to manage the application lifecycle, including deployment (e.g. on Kubernetes), automatic scaling and high availability, with full operational visibility. Swim Continuum 4.1 also offers new cluster partitioning and management features. By providing better cluster metrics and introspection for individual clusters and partitions, Swim customers can benefit from better visibility and improved operations of their application environment.
- Prebuilt connectors for Apache Kafka and Apache Pulsar – designed to turn news brokers into streaming APIs for any real-world entity, allowing developers to compute, score, aggregate, analyze and visualize their digital twin’s data.
“Streaming event data — from products, infrastructure and applications — has emerged as an important new class of data that contains cues that help organizations quickly adapt to changing conditions and respond automatically,” said Ramana Jonnala, CEO of Swim . “Swim Continuum 4.1 is an easy-to-use, production-ready platform for distributed applications that need to analyze, aggregate, and act on-the-fly streaming events from millions of streaming data sources.”
About Swim Continuum
Built on fundamental principles, Swim Continuum overcomes the “store-then-analyze” paradigm common to all industries, in which insights are delayed due to the effort required to collect, send, store, and then analyze data. Swim’s architecture allows any distributed application to be dynamically derived from data and generate insights at the speed of change. This efficient approach is enabled by Swim Web Agents, which are self-contained, programmable objects that compute data instantly and provide insights into massive amounts of real-time streaming data. These swim web agents can be assembled into complex applications without sacrificing the scalability and performance expected of today’s modern Internet-based applications or solutions. Leveraging available computing power from the edge to the cloud, Swim Continuum accelerates time to contextual insights by orders of magnitude and visualizes data in-stream for continuous decision support.
Swim delivers Swim Continuum, the first enterprise-class open-core platform for building, managing and operating continuous intelligence applications on-premises, in the cloud or at the edge. Built on the open-source SwimOS core, Swim Continuum delivers unprecedented power and efficiency for operationalizing high-frequency, contextual data analytics and real-time visualizations of massive amounts of streaming and batch data. Fortune 100 companies in telecom, energy, industrial automation, and other innovative market sectors use Swim Continuum to monitor diverse data streams, anticipate disruptions, and respond quickly to global changes in their industries.
