Sumo Logic Adds Disruptive Licensing Model, Native Integrations and User Experience Innovations
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.
Sumo Logic today 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.
- Sumo Cloud Flex: New Licensing Model
Sumo Cloud Flex provides 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 today in private beta for enterprises with data ingest as low as 500GB.
- Unified Machine Data Analytics: New Native Integrations
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 leading 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 today, making Sumo Logic a cloud-native and modern application management platform providing 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.
- Universal Access: New Experience Capabilities
Sumo Logic is providing new experience capabilities, including a contextual and intuitive user interface to improve user productivity and public dashboards, and improved content sharing for faster collaboration with role-based access (RBAC) controls. These user experience enhancements enable Sumo Logic customers to simplify the process of uncovering, sharing and acting on machine data insights, thereby making machine data analytics relevant to technical and non-technical users across the organization. These new experience capabilities are available today.
“We are pushing the boundaries to continuously innovate in order to remove the complexity and cost associated with getting the most value out of data – whether it’s build-it-yourself open source toolkits and legacy on-premises commercial software packages, the data tax associated with legacy licensing models, or the technology limitations that have prevented universal access for all types of data sources and users,” said Ramin Sayar, President and CEO for Sumo Logic. “Real-time machine data analytics is the only way digital businesses can experience the continuous intelligence needed to drive their continuous innovation processes. We’re excited to deliver a powerful and unified machine data analytics platform that democratizes machine data and unlocks the full data intelligence potential of modern applications and infrastructures.”
