What we do:

We are a cloud-native SaaS data analytics platform, solving complex monitoring and data identification problems for DevOps, SecOps, ITOps and Security Operations teams. Customers love our product because it allows them to easily monitor and optimize their mission critical, large scale applications.  This includes insights from data at rest as well as analysis of data in motion. 

Massive Scale:

Our microservices architecture in AWS ingests hundreds of terabytes daily across many geographic regions. Millions of queries a day analyze hundreds of petabytes of data.


At Sumo Logic, our cloud platform is at the core of driving our product decisions that directly impact customers around the world.

To support our business needs, we are building one of the largest big data infrastructures for cybersecurity in the cloud.  We are maniacally focused on developing streaming services focused on solving Security use cases to make Security Operations Centers more efficient.
