OK – so yesterday I wrote up about my issues with a new Israeli start up called Soluto. I do hope they sort out their overloading issues so that I can give their software a serious try because it sounds like they might be onto something.
While we wait to be able to try it all out I wanted to share some of their background and info on Soluto so you can get a better understanding of what Soluto is all about.
Description of Soluto
Soluto’s goal is to bring an end to the frustrations PC users encounter, with transparency, honesty, killer technology, and the wisdom of the crowd. Soluto’s software combines low-level driver technology with collective wisdom, to detect PC users’ frustrations, reveal their cause, learn which actions really eliminate them and improve user experience. All this data is gathered in Soluto’s PC Genome, a knowledgebase of frustrations and solutions built automatically through the usage of Soluto software, for the benefit of all PC users.
How Does Soluto Work?
Soluto employs innovative low-level Windows kernel technologies to identify what users are asking their PC to do, and what their PC does in return. Soluto is able to pinpoint and analyze what resource obstacles stood in the way of the user’s desired actions. These can be I/O issues, network issues, resource locking, and so on.
Soluto uses the same technologies to determine what actions users took that had a positive effect on their computing experience. For example, pausing certain processes and reconfiguring certain applications can dramatically improve the behavior of a particular piece of software.
This anonymous technical data is gathered and sent to Soluto’s PC Genome, a one of a kind knowledgebase containing statistical insights about PC software and hardware behavior, as well as remedies to alleviate PC usage frustrations. By putting this information into the light, the PC Genome will help consumers and vendors alike.
Soluto employs another set of innovative algorithms to determine which remedies will have a positive impact on each Soluto user’s unique PC system. These remedies are then shared with other relevant Soluto users.
Like I said earlier – I think they might really be onto something here and if it works this could really be a huge step in helping everyday users keep things running smoothly based on the experience of anyone and everyone who is submitting anonymous data to the PC Genome through Soluto.
The beta, when it gets back to working, will only focus on the boot process. More layers of analysis will be added as they move towards a final release.
