This report provides a unique perspective on trends based on the usage of app architectures, processes, tools and use cases by leading-edge enterprises. The data in this report analyzes the technology adoption from more 2,000 Sumo Logic customers who run massive mission-critical modern applications on cloud platforms like AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform, as well as hybrid cloud infrastructures.
The last fifteen years have seen huge increases in developer productivity for several reasons, including the arrival of open source into the mainstream and the ability to better emulate target environments. In addition, the process of resetting a development environment back to the last known stable version has been vastly improved by Vagrant and then Docker.
Today's IT and DevOps teams have not one, but two, feature-rich open source Web servers to choose from: NGINX and Apache HTTP Server (which is often called simply "Apache"). At a high level, both platforms do the same core thing: Host and serve Web content. Both also offer comparable levels of performance and security.
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.
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.
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.
In the second installment of our Amazon Redshift series, we covered the different ways you can monitor the performance and disk space of your Redshift servers using tools in AWS. In this final post, we will discuss how you can take your monitoring and logging efforts up a couple of notches by using Sumo Logic with Amazon Redshift.
This is the third and last in a series of articles on Amazon CloudTrail. In the first part of the series, we introduced AWS CloudTrail and how it works and saw where and how it saves its data. We then learned how to query CloudTrail logs in the second part of the series where we used Amazon Athena to find meaningful information from large volumes of CloudTrail data.
Nowadays, it’s not uncommon to see enterprise IT leaders in a situation that seems like a catch 22. Oftentimes, they are expected to be involved in making data-driven decisions for augmenting productivity and profitability. Paradoxically, they are preoccupied with what they consider as their core responsibilities – applying best practices to safeguard the IT infrastructure and expediting investigations when incidents occur. As practitioners of IT, we must admit that it rings a bell and also chip in with our knowhow.
First time this year, multi-cloud enterprises, as a customer segment of Sumo Logic, have grown faster than any other segment: 50% Y/Y. What took so long? In my conversations with enterprises over the last 5 years, there was only one strategy for public cloud and it was multi-cloud. But evidence of multi-cloud usage was sparse at best. Data from our Continuous Intelligence Report in previous years didn’t find much to support that the strategy for multi-cloud was being implemented.
Never before in history has the concept of identity been so vital. To a large extent, everything we rely on to live our lives depends on who we are… or perhaps more accurately, who we can prove ourselves to be. Our data has come to be the standard by which we define ourselves. Because this identity-defining data is online, the protection of our data is of paramount importance.
In the first part of our AWS S3 series, we discussed what AWS S3 buckets are, the difference between S3 and EC2s, advantages of AWS S3 object storage, and AWS S3 API integration. In this next post, we’ll be covering AWS S3 Monitoring, including the importance of leveraging data and monitoring metrics, and how Sumo Logic provides insight into your infrastructure with S3 logs.
If there is one thing that all Software as a Service (SaaS) companies understand, it is the pressure of “being fired”, as SPS Commerce’s Andy Domeier puts it. SPS Commerce is a cloud-based supply chain management software company and Andy is a Senior Director of Technology there - so he knows what he is talking about.
Amazon Simple Storage Service, widely known as Amazon S3, is a highly scalable, fast, and durable solution for object-level storage of any data type. Unlike the operating systems we are all used to, Amazon S3 does not store files in a file system, instead it stores files as objects. Object Storage allows users to upload files, videos, and documents like you were to upload files, videos, and documents to popular cloud storage products like Dropbox and Google Drive. This makes Amazon S3 very flexible and platform agnostic.
How do you migrate a production system to Kubernetes with confidence? Lior Mechlovich is an SRE for a cloud platform made up of dozens of microservices spanning 10+ teams and 5+ countries. Migration is difficult and risky. In this talk Lior shares his experience and lessons learned migrating to Kubernetes; how they trained teams, gained visibility, and triple checked each phase of the migration.
