Zonar Selects Sumo Logic to Track Performance Usage and Metrics, Maximize Efficiency

Leading fleet management company employs Sumo Logic solutions to gain application performance insights via log management

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – June 3, 2014 – Sumo Logic, the next generation machine data intelligence company, today announced that Zonar, a leading provider of fleet management technology, adopted Sumo Logic to track performance metrics and usage of their homegrown and third-party applications. Through the advanced analytics of the Sumo Logic service, Zonar was able to improve performance and availability across their entire IT and telematics infrastructure, and eliminate hours of review typically associated with root-cause analysis. Zonar selected Sumo Logic to manage the log data of the Zonar devices installed in fleets across the U.S. that utilize the company's SaaS-based services. While experiencing hyper growth, Zonar wanted the ability to proactively monitor and address any intermittent connectivity issues that may occur or have the potential of occurring. With its pattern recognition and discovery, Sumo Logic LogReduce™ enables Zonar to understand if a device loses connection, whether the malfunctions are repetitive or a one-time occurrence and identify the root cause. "As Zonar continues to provide fleet operations with revolutionary inspection, tracking and operations solutions, we needed proactive monitoring that would help us identify any abnormal activity within our infrastructure and give us a chance to respond in a timely manner," said Jesse Young, vice president of software development. "The advanced analytics within the Sumo Logic service provides us with a system that anticipates problems ahead of time with minimal management and overhead." Sumo Logic pinpoints the frequency and speed with which Zonar's files are downloaded, as well as the number of retry attempts and failures. This information is captured in a real-time dashboard, which prompts the engineering team to make improvements to their devices, saving the team an hour a day from having to write or create manual reports from multiple data sources. "Zonar is a prime example of how our machine intelligence solutions can empower companies to gain insights that improve their business," said Vance Loiselle, CEO of Sumo Logic. "The volume of machine data is expected to grow 15 times by 2020 and traditional monitoring systems will not be able to provide IT operations the ability to turn this avalanche of data into actionable insights."
