New Delhi [India], Nov.16 (ANI): CA Technologies on Thursday announced open registration to its latest innovations stemming from the CA Accelerator program, FreshTracks.io beta program; bringing the total of currently enrolled start-ups in the incubator to 10.

The CA Accelerator incubations function like lean startups within the company, where internal innovators receive support and funding to develop and test new product ideas in the marketplace.

Leveraging CA's expertise in the container space, the FreshTracks.io team started with a clean slate, enabling their teams to focus on the problem from the perspective of the customer experience, rather than existing legacy tools.

Utilizing open source technology as the foundation, the team layered in machine learning to build a self-learning monitoring system capable of real-time intelligent alerting.

The result of which was a cost-effective, fast-to-market solution for teams serious about container operations, particularly teams using Prometheus together with Kubernetes.

"The CA Accelerator culture values innovation and is changing the way we think about solving customer challenges. Through our own experiences, we realized the need for container monitoring and made our own solution to share with others who are facing similar challenges," said co-founder, FreshTracks.io., Bob Cotton.

"We are excited about the market opportunity in this emerging area for developers, and it was the flexibility and resources of the Accelerator program that made FreshTracks.io a reality," concluded Cotton.

FreshTracks.io was founded to solve the real problems experienced in monitoring and scaling containerized applications.

With a strong demand for container management technology as machine learning and automation make their way into businesses, this is the fourth container-focused project born out of the CA Accelerator. (ANI)
