Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
It's fully scalable. There is no limit. Of course, the license limits per day the number of terabytes. In my opinion, it's very flexible.
The most valuable feature is the ability to write rules and triggers for network communication, and then being able to investigate based on that.
The most valuable features are its ingestion of logs and raising of alerts based on those logs.
Their technical support responds quickly and are knowledgable.
The most valuable feature is the correlation. It can report in real-time and monitor the management.
It gives the ability to investigate into network traffic in the Net and the organization what we couldn't do before.
We are able to diagnose problems before our customers.
It helps a lot because we can troubleshoot issues pretty easily.
We have used it many times to find a root cause of a live issue, then fix the problem in the applications.
Support has been excellent. Sumo Logic's support staff is really good, both their account management staff and direct support.
It provides easy visibility. I also like the shareable queries because we share a lot across groups.
For many of our services, we use Sumo Logic to track errors and send notifications to our Slack channel, if there are issues. Then, we have our support people monitoring this, and they can react quickly.
Scalability has been good for our needs. We haven't run into any scaling issues in regards to size so far.
I have no concerns about the stability of the product. I feel it handles the stress we put on it very well.
They should implement algorithms to digest that data and produce additional, more advanced reporting, alerting and support of internal security teams.
The system looks like it is a mix of a bunch of different systems, and nothing looked like it was quite together.
I'd like to see improvement in its ease of use. It's basically unusable. It's overly complex.
The initial setup was complex because it takes a lot of time to complete the implementation.
The implementation needs assistance.
We have encountered issues with unresolved crashes.
There are some API gaps that are missing.
We would like to have some type of predefined setup for the logs, making the setup easier by default.
We would like the ability to drill down into a dashboard and get into deeper levels.
There needs to be improvement on imported data which can be used within Sumo Logic to do more advanced queries.
I would like better UI-driven functionality to create alerts and reports. Now, we have to understand the syntax, so it is a little difficult for someone to pick it up without using the manuals. If there was more of a graphical user interface, it would be beneficial.
It would be nice to have an improved ability to scroll through logs within a time frame. Right now, we can search for specific errors. However, if we want to look for "before and after" within a specific time frame, it's not easy using the tool. This would be an improvement.
It took a bit of trial and error to get it set up correctly based on everything we had to do. In the end, we had to send everything over HTTP, which was sort of a stop-gap.
If you want to up your subscription through the AWS Marketplace, it can be difficult. You can't just go back to the AWS Marketplace, and say, "I want a bigger one now." You have to contact the sales team, then they do it on the back-end. This could definitely be improved.
Pricing and Cost Advice
We have a perpetual license, so the total cost of ownership is not very expensive. It's a good investment.
This is a pricey solution; it's not cheap.
The licenses are good but the cost is very expensive.
It is cheap.
The AWS Marketplace pricing is borderline. Every annual renewal, we always contemplate if we are getting what we think we could out of it or could we do it cheaper with some other product.
The pricing is a little high, but for the features that we receive from Sumo Logic, it suits the price. For some small organizations, the price might be a little high.
I don't pay the bill. I've heard the AWS Marketplace pricing is high, but I like the value.
Pricing has been cheaper than some of the competing tools, like Splunk.
If we went to ELK Stack, which is open source, it would have been less costly, but it would have required more development from our side.
The only limit to the scalability of the product for us is how much we are willing to pay.
The price scaling comes in a bit expensive.
Purchasing the solution through the AWS Marketplace is very easy.
