Netflix Selects Sumo Logic’s Next-Generation Log Management and Analytics Service

World's Top Internet Subscription Service Determines Only Sumo Logic Can Scale to Meet Big Data Volumes

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – September 11, 2012 – Sumo Logic, the next-generation log management and analytics company, today announced that Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX), the world's leading Internet subscription service for enjoying movies and TV programs, is adopting Sumo Logic, a cloud-based Log Management and Analytics service. After exhaustive testing of leading solutions, Netflix determined that only Sumo Logic can scale to meet the company’s multi-terabyte Big Data volume requirements.

The Sumo Logic service enables Netflix to realize instant cost savings, gain unprecedented application insight, and monitor and troubleshoot their cloud and on-premise IT infrastructure and applications in real-time. Furthermore, as a cloud-based service running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) offered by Amazon.com, Sumo Logic not only eliminates the additional operational overhead of managing and scaling hardware and storage infrastructure within Netflix’s data centers, but also seamlessly plugs into Netflix’s existing cloud infrastructure, enabling the same level of visibility regardless of where their infrastructure resides.

Serving more than 27 million subscribers across the world, Netflix regards operational efficiency, including system uptime and rapid response to incidents, as paramount. To provide a seamless experience to their customers, Netflix must collect, analyze and react to data from applications, servers, networks, and other supporting infrastructure in real time. Through Sumo Logic’s highly-scalable cloud architecture and patent-pending technologies, Netflix is assured of a flexible solution that helps it deliver a premier video service to its members.

“Migrating to Sumo Logic allows my teams to gain deep insight into all of our on-premise and cloud applications without worrying about the maintenance and infrastructure required to process the terabytes of log data that we generate every day,” said Mike Kail, VP of IT Operations at Netflix. “Sumo Logic’s elastic scalability gave me the confidence that it can handle our data volumes.”

Netflix and Sumo Logic both utilize AWS and share a common vision of leveraging cloud-based technologies to deliver operational efficiency and business value.

Customer benefits of the Sumo Logic Service include:

  • Petabyte-scale log management with zero operational overhead
  • Fully elastic scalability to accommodate data peaks and bursts
  • Instant operational insight from real-time log management and analytics
  • Rapid deployment and short time to value
  • Lowered TCO with none of the hidden costs of on-premise solutions

“By adopting the Sumo Logic solution, Netflix gains the ability to collect, manage, and derive IT and business insights from all of its machine data, whether it comes from their data centers or from their cloud infrastructure. From emerging technology companies to today’s enterprise leaders, Sumo Logic’s cloud-based service is rapidly becoming the solution of choice to unlock the value of machine-generated Big Data,” said Vance Loiselle, president and CEO of Sumo Logic. “We look forward to providing Netflix with this platform to help them realize greater business value from their data and continue to improve the Netflix experience for more than 27 million subscribers.”
