Scalyr, the log management, and observability company, today announced the availability of the first cloud-based log analytics platform capable of ingesting over 250TBs of data per customer in real-time. As a result, Scalyr customers can upload, search, analyze, and retain data at an enterprise scale, at a cost that is orders-of-magnitude below current industry standards.
The company believes that every company should be able to affordably collect, retain, and use all of its application and infrastructure performance data to maximize system and product insights, reduce MTTR, improve SLAs, and optimize performance.
“We code-named this project ‘Sonic Boom’ because we aimed to break through the sound barriers of scale and costs that have prevented many companies from moving log management and analytics to the cloud,” said Christine Heckart, CEO at Scalyr.
“The amount of event data that modern organizations must collect, store, and analyze continues to grow exponentially, while budgets do not. Today’s announcement is Scalyr’s answer to this critical issue. This is a watershed moment that will fully transform observability tools into a baseline business utility.”
Christine Heckart, Chief Executive Officer of Scalyr, is a veteran of the technology industry, having worked for iconic companies including Microsoft, Juniper Networks, Cisco, and NetApp. I invited her onto the podcast to learn more about Scalyr and what their Sonic Boom breakthrough will mean for businesses.
