Logentries, the leading log management and analytics service built for the cloud, today announced its unlimited log management and analytics service. By allowing users to centralize all of their log data – from any source and in any format – at a fraction of the cost of traditional providers, the Logentries log management service now offers users an easy, affordable option to access and analyze unlimited volumes of log data in real-time, on an as-needed basis.

“With billions of important application and system transactions occurring daily, we want to capture all of our machine data from every source in one location,” said Andronikos Nedos, CTO, FieldAware. “With Logentries unlimited approach to collecting, storing and analyzing our log data, we can easily isolate specific log events from any source, over any time period, and get answers to our questions more quickly and cost-effectively than ever before.”

Unlike traditional log management and analytics services that require users to predetermine what information to log and charge costly fees to capture that data, Logentries lets users log everything without incurring significant upfront costs, while also enabling users to analyze any of their log data on-demand. By extending its proprietary pre-processing and real-time analytics engine, Logentries’ Unlimited Data Technology dynamically routes log data from devices in real time for immediate analysis, or directs it to unlimited storage for future analysis. The on-demand ingestion technology gives users comprehensive access to all important log data events so IT and Dev Ops always have the option to immediately retrieve their data from storage and answer tough questions about application performance, system behavior, user experience and business trends over extended periods of time.

Offering both unlimited data storage and on-demand analytics, Logentries provides users:

  • Unlimited log centralization and re-ingestion from long-term storage and immediate access to logs on-demand.
  • All-inclusive support for any type of log, from any device, database, operating system or custom log format.
  • Real-time visibility and monitoring of machine log data across the entire software stack for deep correlation across all components of the infrastructure rather than limiting it to application metrics.

“Our customers continue to tell us about the importance of capturing and analyzing all of their log data to improve their operational decision making. The traditional model where users were forced to predetermine what log data they should capture, while also being charged on a variable, pay-for-everything model limits customer flexibility and leads to excessive cost,” said Andrew Burton, CEO of Logentries.  “Our new unlimited, on-demand service enables virtually any IT and DevOps team to take full advantage of their log data, combining the benefits of real-time monitoring with the option to maintain all log data for on-demand forensics and analytics.”

The Logentries Unlimited, On-Demand Log Management service starts at $359/month and includes logging unlimited data from up to 40 hosts. Users can customize and adjust the number of hosts, the size of their real-time Log Cache, and which data is analyzed in real-time or logged for on-demand analytics. With custom tagging and filtering, users can correlate security and performance issues with broader infrastructure activity including application usage, server metrics, and user behavior.
