(Tech Target IT Operations) - Data pipelines offer a systematic approach to collecting data from multiple clouds, regions and sources about the entire IT infrastructure, including networking and storage as well as applications. Some data pipeline tools for observability also look to create cost savings on back-end data storage systems by removing unnecessary data before it's ingested.
This market segment, which Siegfried has dubbed telemetry pipelines, has grown especially rapidly over the last 18 months, he said.
These newer vendors include Edge Delta, Calyptia and Mezmo. APM vendor Datadog also launched its own observability pipelines in June 2022. Cribl, founded in 2017, is considered the earliest mover in this field, Siegfried said.
