Sumo Logic inks definitive agreement for the acquisition of Sensu

Continuous intelligence pioneer, Sumo Logic, has entered into a definitive agreement for the acquisition of open source monitoring leader, Sensu, Inc. The deal will advance the observability strategy of Sumo Logic by offering clients with an extensible, affordable, and scalable end-to-end solution for application monitoring and infrastructure.

Additionally, the transaction will strengthen the commitment of Sumo Logic towards open source for driving deeper engagement with DevOps communities and the developer.

According to Ramin Sayar, the President and CEO of Sumo Logic, in the present day software centric enterprises, modern applications are deployed, developed, monitored, and managed by DevOps, developers, as well as site reliability teams.

Sayar added that the Sensu solution helps businesses in the automation of workflow monitoring, thereby escalating velocity while enhancing maintainability, repeatability, and reliability.

Sayar further stated that, together, companies would be capable of providing clients with a more cloud-agnostic and cost-effective Observability Pipeline, in addition to an all-inclusive analytics-based observability platform for application monitoring and infrastructure.

The company looks ahead towards welcoming the complete Sensu team, maintaining the identity of the firm, and focus of the Sensu community, affirmed the CEO.

For the uninitiated, Sumo Logic has been active in the open source community for several years. The company has been helping to propel digital transformation of businesses as they commence the modernization of their architectures. The firm deploys open source in the development of its own service with OpenTelemetry via its distributed tracing capacities as part of its Observability Suite.

As per Sensu’s Co-founder and CEO, Caleb Hailey, anyone designing and deploying applications in the modern era is required to incorporate monitoring in the same manner that they are defining and deploying infrastructure.

Hailey also highlighted the company’s belief that Sensu will be a perfect addition to Sumo Logic’s portfolio. This is because the integrated solution will be eliminating data silos by filling gaps in observability for the purpose of bringing logging, metrics, and tracing together by means of a unified pipeline and data platform.
