Sauce Labs Selects @SumoLogic for Machine Data Analytics | @CloudExpo #Cloud #DevOps #BigData

Sumo Logic helps developers & DevOps teams accelerate development & deployment of apps in a modern software delivery lifecycle

Sauce Labs has selected Sumo Logic to troubleshoot and better track log performance issues to predict potential issues before they occur. With Sumo Logic, Sauce Labs now has the ability to better help its customers accelerate the software and development cycle.

Sauce Labs provides a high-performance, cloud-based automated testing platform that is optimized for Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) workflows. Catering to fast-moving companies that employ modern development techniques that support DevOps, Sauce Labs creates a large amount of internal log data, with log volumes ranging up to 600 GBs on some days. It's critical for the company to be able to keep pace by offering scalable, yet secure, automated testing in the cloud.

The company's old logging infrastructure relied heavily on an ELK stack that required constant engineering care and feeding, and was unable to handle the tremendous growth and variability of its log data. Sauce Labs brought in Sumo Logic's cloud-based log monitoring, management and analytics service to deliver real-time insights into this data.

"Our operations team was spending too much time in firefighting mode, retroactively searching for issues instead of proactively solving issues that impact customer satisfaction," said Joe Alfaro, VP of engineering at Sauce Labs. "We knew we needed an out-of-the-box solution that would give us deep visibility and insights to help us scale on demand, because for us, just seconds of downtime can break hundreds of tests. Sumo Logic has been a dream for us. The intelligence Sumo Logic delivers is far beyond what we had prior and has paid for itself in the first day of implementation."

One of the key drivers for Sauce Labs' decision to choose Sumo Logic was its ease of deployment and zero maintenance overhead. Sauce Labs deployed Sumo Logic within minutes and quickly took the storage burden off of its previous in-house log management system. Because of its automation capabilities, it freed up the time of one full-time engineer who previously had been spending 100 percent of the time monitoring ELK. Sumo Logic also provided onsite, set-up and training, both critical to ensuring Sauce Labs had zero downtime during its implementation process.

Sumo Logic helps developers and DevOps teams accelerate the development and deployment of applications in a modern software delivery lifecycle. Its machine data analytics platform is the industry's first to natively ingest, index and analyze structured metrics data and unstructured log data together in real-time, transforming a variety of data types into real-time continuous intelligence for modern applications and business insight.
