AMSTERDAM, April 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — KubeCon + CloudNativeCon
Europe 2023 – Sumo Logic (NASDAQ: SUMO), the SaaS analytics platform
to enable reliable and secure cloud-native applications, today announced
it has taken steps to remove complexity from data collection, improved
normalization of data, and consolidated collection agents with

Sumo Logic was purpose-built to manage and analyze data from any source.
Today, Sumo Logic extends that legacy by adopting OpenTelemetry as its
de facto collection strategy to remove complexity in the collection and
normalization of data. With Sumo Logic Distro for OT, a native OTel
solution, customers no longer face vendor lock-in and can apply Sumo
Logic flexibility and analytics to their vendor of choice.

“Sumo Logic has made a commitment to its customers and the community
to develop and deliver on OTel-native collection so that customers can
realize value, quickly,” said Erez Barak, VP of Product Development
for Observability, Sumo Logic. “The enhancements announced today will
make it possible for Sumo Logic to deliver choice and flexibility
while continuing to provide comprehensive infrastructure and application
monitoring. The best OTel-native experiences run on Sumo Logic.”

Ease of Onboarding Data Using OpenTelemetry

With nearly 30 apps related to database, server, or infrastructure
monitoring powered by OTel, Sumo Logic Distro for OT provides a single
collector for telemetry. Now, with support for Windows, customers using
Sumo Logic Distro for OT can gather logs, metrics, and traces from
Windows, Linux and MacOS operating systems, which can be configured
utilizing the new onboarding workflows.

A single, OTel-based collection strategy is important for application
observability and infrastructure monitoring. Onboarding data and setting
up collection from various sources can be complex as users juggle
disparate backends or libraries and may be limited by proprietary tools.
Sumo Logic’s unified agent makes it easier to consolidate into one
platform for observability use cases instead of disparate monitoring
tools for logs or APM. Through a single app installation workflow for
logs, metrics and traces, Sumo Logic makes it easier for developers to
harness data and takes the complexity out of deploying OpenTelemetry as
a collection strategy.

Sumo Logic also reduces the number of manual steps in the data
onboarding process. Each step – Collector Setup, Source Configuration,
Dashboard Setup – is now folded into a single workflow allowing users to
onboard data in under 5 minutes. By standardizing on OTel-native
collection, developers get a simplified installation to onboard data and
set up data collection on Sumo Logic.
