In today’s ever-changing business landscape, those that operate using a software-driven model will be the most successful. These businesses recognize the power of transforming enormous volumes of data generated by digital operations into real-time insights that propel further success. The ability to do this in real-time, all the time, across multiple functional disciplines, lies at the heart of continuous intelligence.
As more and more applications move to the cloud, the complexity of application architectures inevitably increases. It is a burden we willingly take on because the benefits—flexible deployment, technology diversity, independent scaling, and much more— tend to far outweigh the costs. But along this transition, most organizations face a dilemma, to divert resources to the necessary tooling for effective monitoring and troubleshooting of these systems – i.e. observability – or slow the rate of migration to the cloud.
The Continuous Intelligence Platform for AWS Observability is the first solution to leverage all of the telemetry generated by AWS services to accelerate issue resolution, automatically determine the root cause of failures, and help customers optimize usage of AWS services to improve uptime and performance.
Automation is a key component in the management of the entire software release lifecycle. While we know it is critical to the Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery process, it is now becoming equally essential to the underlying infrastructure you depend on. As automation has increased, a new principle for managing infrastructure has emerged to prevent environment drift and ensure your infrastructure is consistently and reliably provisioned.
At Sumo Logic, we manage petabytes of unstructured log data as part of our core log search and analytics offering. Multiple terabytes of data are indexed every day and stored persistently in AWS S3. When a query is executed against this data via UI, API, scheduled search or pre-installed apps, the indexed files are retrieved from S3 and cached in a custom read-through cache for these AWS S3 objects.
Now, more than ever, organizations around the world see the clear need for scalable, cloud-native apps and services to support business productivity during rapidly changing times. As a result, security teams are on the hook to adjust their security posture as the attack surface grows and their organization’s systems are increasingly migrated to the cloud. Join Sumo Logic Director of Product Marketing Dana Torgersen as he demonstrates the many features of Sumo Logic's cloud-native Security Intelligence, including the ability to analyze AWS logs for threats and monitor data access by users, devices & locations.
AWS Lambda is the leading serverless computing solution and is one of AWS’ most successful products, to date. Its popularity is in large part because of the way it makes development easier and faster. Lambda completely abstracts away the maintenance of underlying infrastructure including compute, storage, memory, and networking.
The first means to collect security-relevant information at Cloud SIEM Enterprise (CSE) was our Network Sensor. It was built to analyze network traffic and provide visibility beyond traditional SIEM's down to the network-level. Beyond organizing packets into flows, the sensor supports more advanced features such as decoding of common protocols, file carving, SSL certificate validation, OS fingerprinting, clustered deployment and more.
Many companies are moving their infrastructure and web applications to the cloud. Along with moving to the cloud, organizations are finding new ways to remain agile and nimble, especially when it comes to software. By utilizing Amazon AWS and Amazon ECS, companies are decoupling their monolithic applications and taking advantage of microservice architecture.
At this year’s AWS reInvent, we heard Andy Jassy go on stage to announce a bunch of new services to help companies unleash the power of cloud. 27 new services to be exact - everything from Machine learning IDE , to code review tools to contact center offerings (see the full list here); last year, AWS announced another 30 new services ranging from machine learning to VR/AR to satellite data.
In this three-part series, we will take a hard look at Amazon’s Elastic Kubernetes Service: how it helps organizations run Kubernetes on AWS, what insights can be gained in EKS and how it’s monitored, and finally, how organizations can get the most out of EKS with the help of Sumo Logic. For the first installment, we’ll learn how it works and how organizations can get started with Amazon’s Elastic Kubernetes Service.
For nearly 10 years, AWS and Sumo Logic have been the perfect pairing for businesses going through their digital transformation journey. AWS provides the best technology to help companies with their digital transformation, while Sumo Logic provides continuous intelligence and insights to monitor, run and secure those applications on AWS.
AWS offers more than 150 discrete services, spanning compute, storage, database, network, and identity management to name a few. Earlier this year we published our Continuous Intelligence Report in which we surveyed Sumo Logic customers on how broadly they used the various AWS services. We found that the median number of different services most orgs use was 15.
Security is a top concern for any enterprise to move their applications and workloads to the public cloud. AWS offers a broad selection of native security tools and as our Continuous Intelligence Report noted, AWS customers are using several of these to improve the security of their AWS environment. However, it can be overwhelming to know where to start and how to deploy best practices for detecting security misconfigurations caused by human errors and attacks from external sources.
