Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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.
The most valuable aspects of the solution are its ease of use and its ease of implementation.
People are very pleased with the implementation.
The features I find most valuable is the querying and alerting capabilities.
This solution makes it a lot easier to figure out trends within very different data sources, which makes it easy to see why something is misbehaving.
This solution allows me to have true visibility for any metrics when it comes to my cloud, and private.
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.
They could make it more easy to plug-in data so that a nontechnical person will be able to use it, like accountants or finance people. That way they don't have to ask us.
The implementation is a long process that should be improved.
In the new version, I would love to see more prediction capabilities. It would be great if one could see the alerts get a little more enriched with information and become more human-friendly instead of the technical stuff that they put in there. I think those would be really awesome outcomes to get.
I would like to see more out-of-the-box dashboards for in-depth application monitoring of standard products that are out there.
I would like to see integration with Kubernetes cluster and APIs so that you can manage the entire stack.
Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
Educational pricing is available for this solution.
We were given a year's worth of service. It was included within our ELA. We were trying to do a proof of concept, which is almost over now.
