Sumo Logic announced its expansion of the Sumo Logic business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia-Pacific (APAC) to meet growing international demand for cloud-native machine data analytics.

Specifically, the company accelerated its global investment in three key areas, including expanding its international sales team and two regional research and development (R&D) centers, deepening its partner ecosystem, and launching an Amazon Web Services (AWS) instance in Frankfurt, Germany to provide the infrastructure that gives customers a holistic view of global data.

Sumo Logic is expanding its global footprint in three key investment areas:

- International Teams and R&D Centers: Sumo Logic doubled its international headcount over the past year with teams in Europe, Australia, Asia and India. In addition, the company has invested heavily in technology innovation with two R&D centers in Poland and India. These R&D centers are home to a growing team of engineers who are working on projects that will further enhance and extend the breadth and depth of Sumo Logic’s machine data analytics platform.

- Strong Global Partner Ecosystem: Sumo Logic is significantly expanding its global partner presence with AWS and others to help organizations get real-time operational and security insights into their modern applications, while delivering the continuous intelligence needed to tackle their toughest challenges, including public cloud migration, the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) deadline, Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance regulations and more. New partners include Ackcent Cybersecurity, Nordcloud, Cloud Technology Partners, GlobalDots, Opensky/TUV, Olindata, Sec-1/Claranet and Beeso IT, CMD Solutions, Datacom, RedBear IT and Vibrato.

- New AWS Frankfurt Data Center: Sumo Logic recently launched a fully operational AWS deployment in Frankfurt, Germany to provide new and existing customers access to a state-of-the-art, highly-available AWS data center to support provisioning accounts from both sumologic.com and the AWS Marketplace. Global enterprises who operate in Germany must comply with data sovereignty rules and keep certain data sets within German national boundaries. Sumo Logic’s newly launched Frankfurt footprint is another major step forward in providing global enterprises with a consistent, state-of-the-art, global view of their business while supporting country-specific data privacy and sovereignty rules such as Germany Privacy Rules and European Union (EU) regulations, such as the EU GDPR.
