The Assimilation Project provides integrated IT discovery and monitoring aimed at risk management and mitigation. It provides scalability into the 100K server range by fully and reliably distributing the work of discovery and monitoring. The Assimilation system is essentially a Command Control and Intelligence (C2I) system for your data center.
This talk will give a brief overview of the Assimilation project, and provides detail in the unique protocols and algorithms we use to enable this high level of work distribution. In addition we will touch on the security aspects of the protocol and importance of security to the project.

The Assimilation Project provides integrated IT discovery and monitoring aimed at risk management and mitigation. Discovery finds systems, services, dependencies, including services you aren’t monitoring and systems you’ve forgotten about. About 30% of all outside security breaches come through forgotten systems. Discovery is continuous and has zero-network-footprint. Monitoring is extremely scalable due to a radically distributed architecture. Discovery informs monitoring – simplifying configuration and maintenance.
The Assimilation Project software provides extremely scalable easy-to-configure monitoring, and creates a continually up to date, detailed configuration management database based on the Neo4j graph database. This talk will give an overview of the Assimilation project – its capabilities, current status and future plans.
