Loggly Rolls Out Second-Gen Cloud-Based Log Management Service
Sep 06, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Loggly, a cloud-based log management service, released a completely new generation of its platform on September 3, establishing new benchmarks for ease-of-use, scalability and visual analytics.
According to a release, at a time when cloud-centric organizations are eager for better tools to derive real-time insight from the enormous volume of operational management data generated daily by business applications and IT infrastructure, Loggly has staked out a new path. Called Responsive Log Management, Loggly's approach enables developers and technical operations teams to solve problems faster.
Loggly noted that the all-new "Generation 2" service features a new user interface, new analytical tools and a scale-out architecture to handle large customer volumes. Important new capabilities include point-and-click trend graphs from any data, automated event parsing, powerful search and filtering capabilities, a spreadsheet-like grid view option, integrated alerting, customizable dashboards and persistent workspaces that allow users to pick up just where they left off even if they restart their browser or switch to an alternate computer. Notably, Loggly has dramatically simplified the process of getting logs to Loggly, which does not require proprietary software agents to be installed. Loggly also today launched a new website and added new pricing plans to accommodate a diverse customer base.
In addition, the Company noted:
Loggly targets "cloud-centric organizations." These include both pure-play Internet companies as well as divisions of large diversified businesses, who conduct their business primarily over the Internet including e-commerce, gaming, social-media, mobile, digital advertising, SaaS and the like. Whether they build their infrastructure "on-premises" or in the cloud, because they do business over the 'net they eagerly embrace cloud-based services for many of their important needs. By clearly identifying whom it serves, Loggly is able to tune its product offerings to very specific needs.
With Loggly Gen2, the company is also staking out a new path in log management known as Responsive Log Management or RLM. The three principles of the RLM product strategy are: Simplicity, Scalability and Stories. Simplicity means that the service should be immediately useful and valuable without training and then advanced features reveal themselves through use. Scalability means that the service must be able to accommodate highly dynamic volumes and be especially tolerant of data spikes. Stories mean that the service should not simply be a tool to inspect log data, but rather should reveal the stories that the data tells. The stories are visual representations that provide insights in and of themselves as well as provide fine-pitch guidance as to where to focus further investigative effort.
As a SaaS offering Loggly is especially convenient and practical. Customers gain the reliability of an always-on redundant platform and rapid functional advancement. And customers do not have to manage large analysis clusters, keep up with software updates, or expend human and capital resources on activities that are not their core business focus.
"Log management is the first big data problem that every cloud-centric organization must tackle," said Charlie Oppenheimer, CEO of Loggly. "Our second generation service delivers improved speed, scale and a world-class user experience to allow our customers to solve problems faster and predict where new issues will arise."
