XpoLog hopes Search makes the Difference in Log Management

The larger a computing infrastructure gets, the more difficult it becomes to pore through server logs to track down anomalies or errors. XpoLog Ltd. has introduced log management tools for Big Data that promise better searches at what it claims is a fraction of the cost of its competitors.
