Sumo Logic announced Sumo Logic Flex Licensing, a log analytics pricing plan that offers free, unlimited log data ingest so developer, security and operations teams can capture and analyze critical data across their enterprise.

The new pricing model removes a common cost barrier for analytics, allowing customers to take full advantage of their ever-growing volumes of data to make data-driven decisions and accelerate innovation without gaps in visibility.

Sumo Logic’s unified, scalable and high-performance log analytics platform centralizes, stores and analyzes business-critical data in one place so organizations can reduce data overload and eliminate silos between development, security and operations. By removing the cost of data ingest into the Sumo Logic platform, companies can harness the full power of enterprise-wide data for business insights without cost limitations and leverage a single source of truth for DevSecOps initiatives.

“As data continues to grow exponentially, many log management vendors are adjusting their pricing models to adapt to this growth. The problem is that these models are still based on the same limiting parameters of data ingest or compute restriction. Sumo Logic is the first to introduce a disruptive approach by associating cost with the actual value of the platform - the analytics,” said Joe Kim, President and CEO for Sumo Logic. “We believe that log analytics can be a powerful single source of truth across Dev, Sec and Ops, and organizations shouldn’t have to pick and choose which business-critical data to ingest. Our new Flex Licensing model removes the cost barriers, allowing organizations to finally centralize, store and analyze all application, infrastructure and security data in one place to drive collaboration and provide the visibility required to make rapid decisions and accelerate innovation.”

Sumo Logic’s new Flex Licensing plan aligns cost to business value to overcome today’s ever-growing data challenge by only charging customers for data storage and analytics executed. This revolutionary new consumption model provides customers with a scalable and efficient log analytics architecture that grows to manage enterprise-wide and cloud-scale log ingestion without the risk of runaway costs.

Additionally, by delivering the new financial model for log management that encourages customers to ingest all of their log data, Sumo Logic is enabling businesses to centralize all of their observability and security analytics data in one place to simplify and accelerate meantime to resolution for availability, performance, and security incidents.

As part of Flex Licensing, organizations get full access to Sumo Logic’s SaaS Log Analytics Platform with complete visibility into their applications and systems.

Key benefits of Flex Licensing and the platform include:

- No charge for log ingest: Removes cost limitations associated with pricing models that charge based on data ingest and require Dev, Sec and Ops teams to pick and choose tools and which data to share. Instead, value is directly tied to analytics.

- Straightforward pricing and platform: Simple, transparent pricing model that only charges for data storage and analytics. There are no hidden monthly charges, feature restrictions, performance tradeoffs or user limitations.

- Deeper insights through ML/AI - Flex Licensing enables powerful ML/AI capabilities out-of-the-box to solve some of the hardest operational and security challenges, including surfacing high-fidelity insights and establishing a single source of truth for developers, operations, and security teams on a scalable and high-performance platform that aligns investment and cost with business insights.

- Unified log analytics for DevSecOps: Dev, Sec and Ops teams can ingest all structured, semi-structured and unstructured data and run analytics at unmatched performance with Sumo Logic’s AI-driven log analytics platform. With one place for monitoring and securing applications, teams can break down silos, consolidate tools and expand DevSecOps transformations.

Flex Licensing is available immediately to new Sumo Logic customers and will be made available to existing customers later this year.
