Sumo Logic plans to use Sensu’s globally renowned Observability Pipeline to gain administrative control for its platform. Sensu’s Observatory Suite is used by over 3,000 developers worldwide and will significantly aid Sumo Logic.

Sumo Logic, the data analytics and log management service provider, has announced that it is acquiring Sensu Inc., a monitoring software maker, to add essential elements to its observability suite. The details regarding the financial transaction have not been disclosed.

Why did Sumo Logic acquire Sensu?

The software Sumo Logic securely interprets and gathers enormous data to make it usable for security, intelligence, compliance, and business operations.

They want to incorporate their intellectual property into the Observability platform to enable clients to utilize their business’s data for different purposes, including predicting spikes and dips in seasonal sales and customers’ buying patterns.

This is good news for companies using software-as-a-service platforms. Sensu’s Observability Pipeline is used by over 3,000 developers worldwide and will be an important part of Sumo Logic’s platform. The code for monitoring that the pipeline supplies will help DevOps teams fine-tune how the Observability Suite will be administered quickly and efficiently. This, in turn, will guarantee timely deliveries to businesses regarding their data.

How can the improved Observability Suite be accessed?

Sensu’s Observability Pipeline with their community-developed plug-ins and third-party data will be available via a one-click integration with Sumo Logic’s SaaS-based Observability Suite. It will help clients receive instant analytics, visualizations, and inclusive support for events, tracing, logs and metrics.

Observability is how cloud environment performance is obtained through analytics from massive amounts of telemetry data (events, traces, histograms, logs, metrics) and collected via different sets of data sources, including cloud services and applications.

Sumo Logic believes that combining the concept of Observability with DevOps and its team-based culture makes for a practical approach that can help fix even the worst issues surrounding cloud applications.
