Sumo Logic Announces Integration With VMware vFabric(TM) Application
Cloud-Based Log Management and Analytics Service Transforms Machine
Data Into Operational Insights in Real-Time 
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/10/12 --  Sumo Logic, the
next-generation log management and analytics company, today announced
integration with VMware vFabric(TM) Application Director, a
cloud-enabled application provisioning solution that simplifies how
to create and standardize portable application deployment topologies
across cloud services. Sumo Logic is integrated with VMware vFabric
Application Director so that customers creating application
deployment topologies can, with a click of a button, include Sumo
Logic into their applications, regardless of whether they run in a
public, private or hybrid VMware-powered cloud. This enables VMware
customers to use Sumo Logic to collect and analyze machine data
generated by their applications, operating systems, networks, and
VMware infrastructure in order to ensure those applications run and
perform optimally. 
Sumo Logic enables enterprise IT professionals to search, visualize
and analyze their machine data in real time to enable application and
infrastructure troubleshooting and monitoring within dynamic virtual
environments. Eliminating the need for on-premise log management
solutions, Sumo Logic delivers a petabyte-scale cloud platform that
provides companies with immediate access to valuable operational
insights from machine data in real time. Additionally, Sumo Logic
delivers a streamlined and simple solution for collecting, managing
and analyzing machine data from VMware infrastructure. 
According to Gartner, Inc., new ideas are emerging that will replace
traditional monitoring approaches with a more granular data
collection layer in the attempt to isolate and understand root causes
more rapidly. These emerging monitoring platforms, many of which are
cloud-based and software as a service (SaaS) delivered, are designed
with a big data storage and processing back end. With the ability to
analyze and process much larger sets of data, additional IT
operations analytics patterns are feasible. These require a shift in
the way monitoring is currently engineered and implemented.* 
The core innovation of the Sumo Lo
gic log management and analytics
service is the company's patent-pending LogReduce(TM) technology,
which uses real-time forensics to reduce millions of log lines into a
manageable set of patterns that enable IT teams to quickly identify
and resolve operational issues. It is also powered by the
patent-pending Elastic Log Processing(TM) technology, a
petabyte-scale index and search platform designed specifically for
Big Data volumes, allowing it to far surpass the scalability of
on-premise solutions. By collecting all machine data and storing it
for an unlimited amount of time, Sumo Logic's powerful algorithms can
notify IT teams proactively with push notifications and improve
overall IT posture and service levels. 
"In today's cloud era, organizations are looking for a better
approach to accelerate application deployment across cloud
environments," said Sheryl Sage, director, Alliance Programs, VMware.
"With our ecosystem of partners, we are providing our customers with
a wide selection of ready-to-deploy applications and infrastructure
products, and we are pleased to have Sumo Logic in the VMware Cloud
Application Marketplace."  
"We are pleased to be a part of the VMware vFabric(TM) Application
Director ecosystem," said Vance Loiselle, president and CEO of Sumo
Logic. "Sumo Logic's integration with VMware environments
revolutionizes the way VMware customers manage their machine data,
including VMware logs, events and performance data into operational
insights in real-time without adding any of the additional overhead
required from on-premise solutions."
