Sumo Logic, Inc. Key Developments

Sumo Logic Delivers the Platform to Democratize Machine Data Analytics

Sumo Logic announced major innovations in the platform. A disruptive licensing model, native integrations and universal access unleash the inherent power of Sumo Logic's multi-tenant platform and machine learning capabilities to enable customers to realize their full data insight potential to build, run, secure and manage modern applications, regardless of the underlying infrastructure and technology stack. Businesses of all sizes are transforming at an unprecedented pace to deliver new experiences for their customers and compete in the digital era. But legacy technologies, inefficient siloed processes and tools, and a tsunami of data are slowing their transformation, and it's only getting harder. Big Data Handbook, the volume of machine data will exceed 16 zettabytes by 2020, and current approaches to machine data will leave the vast majority of digital insights hidden away, starving the operators of modern apps from the intelligence they need to make decisions. Sumo Logic is addressing these challenges by removing the licensing, speed and user access barriers that have been carried over from old computing models. Sumo Logic's mission is to create the leading cloud-native machine data analytics platform that delivers continuous intelligence for modern applications management. To achieve this, Sumo Logic announced three major innovations that make continuous intelligence available to all users, in a platform that addresses all data types, cloud platforms, applications and infrastructure, delivered as a low TCO, scalable and secure service. Traditionally, machine data analytics has been priced as one-size-fits-all based on the volume of data ingested -- as the data tsunami grows, so does the cost. This inflexible model is not optimized for emerging and more flexible use cases such as application development and deployment, IT operations and management, compliance and security, and new growth opportunities from end-customer insights. Organizations are often forced to make a trade-off between the high cost of current licensing models, also known as a data tax, that refers to the cost of moving data into the data analytics solution. Sumo Cloud Flex disrupts the economics of data analytics by providing customers with maximum flexibility to align data consumption, retention and analytics with different use cases and variable seasonality of data; universal access by removing user-based pricing; and full transparency via a real-time usage dashboard. Sumo Cloud Flex is designed for large terabyte-scale data sets, and is available in private beta for enterprises with data ingest as low as 500GB. Machine data analytics provides the complete visibility needed to manage the growing complexity of modern application architectures. Sumo Logic unveiled new integrations to cloud infrastructure services and cloud application development services to support data ingest from a variety of cloud platforms, apps and infrastructure. These include Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Heroku, Microsoft Azure and Pivotal Cloud Foundry®, in addition to on-premises infrastructures, to deliver an analytics layer that provides maximum flexibility and holistic management across the entire modern application and infrastructure stack. These integrations are available, making Sumo Logic the industry's first cloud-native and modern application management platform to provide a unified system to natively ingest, analyze and correlate structured (metrics) and semi-structured (logs) across a diversity of cloud systems, containerization, third party integrations, networks, devices and environments while remaining data and cloud agnostic.
