Announcing Sumo Logic's State of Modern Apps in AWS Report

Today we published Sumo Logic’s first "The State of The Modern App in AWS" report. We wanted to explore how modern applications differ from traditional applications: how are the modern app workloads run, what application components are used, and which types of application services are leveraged? This report is based on anonymized data from about 1,000 customers running modern application workloads in AWS and it examines the composition of those applications.

Sumo Logic provides our customers with the operational and security visibility of their applications. As such, multiple millions events per second of live data are sent to our service from our customers’ full application stack: infrastructure, application components, custom app code, as well as variety of application services leveraged to manage the application. Fingerprint of this data then gives us unprecedented ability to answer questions about these applications.

When we founded Sumo Logic, we decided to build a multi-tenant analytics service in order to be able to leverage the cross customer visibility in order to provide more value to each customer. Our architecture and technology behind it allows us to:

  • Analyze anonymized statistics about technology usage to help our existing and future customers learn about latest technology trends emerging from enterprises leading the way to digital transformation (e.g. this report)
  • Prioritize roadmap items in order to help our customers gain visibility into most commonly used technologies (e.g. our integration with Docker)
  • Improve our machine learning algorithms by exposing them to larger data sets of same data types across multiple customers
  • Derive meanings from events occurring across same sources across multiple customers to improve operational and security outcomes

I am excited to have this report as it is a very tangible response to a question I very frequently get: what is the value of having a multi-tenant architecture? It is easy to quickly respond that we benefit from the same operating model as other all-in cloud services, such as AirBnB, Netflix, Hudl, etc. But this report also highlights another, and perhaps more important and unique value of multi-tenancy - it gives us the ability to analyze trillions of anonymized events across our customer community and convert them into value for each individual customer as they build, run, and secure their modern application. With Sumo Logic, you are not alone.

We are excited to continue deriving insights that will help our customers create better outcomes for their business.

Complete visibility for DevSecOps

Reduce downtime and move from reactive to proactive monitoring.
