Platform's Purview: 'From Servers To Robots'

Bob Moul says the technical capabilities of the new startup he's leading are “mind-boggling.”

As the new CEO of Circonus, Moul is looking to make big plays in IT monitoring and IoT analytics with the Fulton, Md. startup's machine data intelligence platform, which he claims can handle trillions of data points per second from a variety of sources and serve real-time alerts and analysis.

"It's mind-boggling, and it's exciting. So that's why I'm here," he said in an interview with CRN.

In the IT world, the Philadelphia-based Moul is perhaps best known for his time as CEO of Boomi, the cloud application integration provider he sold to Dell in late 2010. A serial entrepreneur, he has led other startups, including Artisan Mobile, Edmunds GovTech and Cloudamize.

After joining Circonus last fall, Moul is ready to shift the startup into overdrive. Last month, it raised a $6.8 million Series A1 funding round led by Osage Venture Partners to hire more employees and expand its sales and marketing efforts to become a formidable player in the world of IT infrastructure and IoT.

For Moul, the key differentiator for Circonus in the IoT space is the startup's ability to process a massive volume of machine data for everything “from servers to robots,” giving businesses richer and more accurate analyses of their business processes for improved decision-making.

"The more data at a higher frequency, higher resolution, that allows you then to do more accurate analysis, better predictive capabilities and more confidence in all the things that you do," he said.

What follows is an edited transcript of CRN's interview with Moul, who talked about the company's IoT capabilities, the parallels he sees between Boomi and Circonus and how Major League Baseball is using the startup's platform to improve the ballpark experience.
