Sumo Logic Accelerates With AWS SaaS Partner Program

Existing Customers and Prospects Benefit From Massive Scale Supported by AWS

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 9, 2015) - Sumo Logic, the industry's leading, secure and purpose-built cloud-based machine data analytics service, today announced it is an inaugural member of the AWS SaaS Partner Program. The announcement builds on Sumo Logic's existing relationship with AWS as a member of the AWS Partner Network (APN); Sumo Logic is an APN Big Data Competency Partner and also integrates with AWS CloudTrail. Sumo Logic's expertise in AWS provides a complete cloud services and machine data analytics portfolio that will grant enterprise customers fast, flexible access to the cloud and valuable insights from their IT infrastructure.

"From Sumo Logic's creation, it's been core to our strategy to build a cloud-native machine data analytics platform on AWS," said Mark Musselman, vice president of strategic alliances at Sumo Logic. "The explosive nature of machine data generated by network and connected devices, including the Internet of Things, demands a new approach to IT Operations. It is critical for companies to have full stack visibility in real time across petabytes of daily data to optimize and secure their critical applications and workloads. This approach requires the ability to access compute power on demand that AWS is uniquely positioned to deliver."

The new "Cloud Era" is driving a massive increase in machine-generated data from enterprise IT infrastructure. Industry analyst firm IDC projects that global public IT cloud services spending will hit close to $127 billion by 2018. Rapidly growing enterprise cloud adoption, coupled with DevOps practices that are pushing the pace of software development and increasing reliance on Software-as-a-Service delivery models, contribute to a growing flood of data that IT operations teams fail to keep pace with.

Unlike legacy solutions that require considerable configuration, management and overhead, Sumo Logic offers flexible SaaS services that scale dynamically to meet the needs of IT and business leaders, enabling enterprise customers to maximize AWS compute and applications solutions. More than 500 customers now use Sumo Logic to migrate, optimize and secure critical application workloads running on AWS. The ongoing relationship with AWS ensures that joint customers continue to gain access and benefit from innovation and integrations with an expanding ecosystem of best-in-breed SaaS providers.

"By leveraging the APN SaaS Test Drive and SaaS Pilot components, Sumo Logic's prospects will soon be able to trial Sumo Logic in a pre-configured environment and shift to a pilot using their own data easily," said Musselman. "We see this as a critical benefit that will further support Sumo Logic's customer acquisition strategy and get new customers online quickly."

"Sumo Logic was born from an innovative SaaS delivery model designed to provide customers with a powerful and easy way to maximize the potential of big data. Their experience in operating a global SaaS offering on AWS makes them a valuable, inaugural member of our SaaS Partner Program," said Brian Matsubara, Head of Global Technology Alliances for AWS. "The SaaS Partner Program was designed from the ground up to support established SaaS companies like Sumo Logic, as well as those who are looking to bring their first SaaS offering to market. We are pleased to help Sumo Logic grow its business on AWS."
