About IRIS Network Systems

IRIS is a robust and scalable data collection framework designed to deliver network management data as quickly as possible to the user in the most meaningful way possible.

Inspired from dealing with the challenges faced by an ISP every day, IRIS was designed from the point of view of dealing with large amounts of data and providing a generic and extensible way of presenting that data.

Because of this unique approach, it allows the system to solve a variety of problems with relative simplicity.
