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 provide 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.
