Circinus Improves Public Safety Through Large-Scale Open-Source Data Analytics

Circinus LLC is a leading provider of operational intelligence, training and support. The company uses sophisticated, integrated security solutions to help government clients identify security threats from a variety of sources, and turn that information into actionable intelligence.

Running on the IBM LinuxONE platform (an IBM Z mainframe configured to run Linux exclusively) and IBM FlashSystem all-flash storage, the Circinus solution leverages a number of products from the IBM Analytics and IBM Security portfolios.

To augment their own in-house resources, Circinus partnered with Sirius to architect, integrate and implement the different software elements into a cohesive, functional and reliable solution—initially in an IBM data center, and later in the client’s country. As Circinus’ director of Engineering said, “Sirius and the IBM z/VM team provided invaluable support, working closely with us to fine-tune configuration in a short time frame. With the team’s help, the whole environment was set up and running in just 45 days.”

The results included:

  • Accelerated acquisition and analysis of time-sensitive data to support intelligence work
  • Protection of vital government services with high-availability architecture
  • 100% encryption to help secure sensitive intelligence reports
