So what exactly is Log Management?

Log management comprises an approach to dealing with large volumes of computer-generated log messages. Log Management generally covers: Log collection Centralized log aggregation Long-term log storage and retention Log rotation Log analysis Log search and reporting.

  • LogDNA saw tremendous growth in 2018 with over 2,000 customers using their solution and increasing revenue 5x from the previous year.
  • Also, recently the company also announced a new self-hosted product for those companies that prefer to maintain all of the software on their own servers, instead of or in conjunction with the cloud service.

LogDNA is a leading provider of Log Management applications that provide deep insight into development and production environments.  LogDNA’s flexible deployment options enable teams to ingest, aggregate and view all of their log data regardless of data residency and infrastructure.  Their Multi-Cloud solution provides DevOps teams with the ability to effortlessly control cost and manage their data volumes. With customers like IBM, Instacart, and Lime, LogDNA is currently enabling over 2,000 companies with their modern log management platform.

Logging can produce technical information usable for the maintenance of applications or websites. It can serve:

  • to define whether a reported bug is actually a bug
  • to help analyze, reproduce and solve bugs
  • to help test new features in a development stage

Designed for streamlined implementation, LogDNA’s self-hosted logging alternative is a cost-effective, intuitive, compliant, and scalable solution for enterprise-wide integration. It allows companies to achieve the benefits of having a fully cloud-based solution meeting all on-premise logging requirements. The self-hosted solution exceeds the capabilities of all competitors and DIY open-source options in terms of efficiency, cost, connectivity, and speed.

Note, the primary drivers for log management implementations are concerns about security,[2] system and network operations (such as system or network administration) and regulatory compliance.

“As businesses’ application and cloud environments grow, they shouldn’t have to sacrifice service availability while the IT team processes vast quantities of log data,” said LogDNA co-founder and CTO Lee Liu. “IBM Cloud customers will now be able to find, debug and fix production issues in their applications faster than ever before so there’s no lag in service for the end users.”

IBM Cloud developers will be able to set up and configure their log sources and retention plans directly within their IBM Cloud console. LogDNA’s fast, responsive, and intuitive interface will provide users with the ability to view and search through their logs to effectively find and isolate issues within the applications they build and run on the IBM Cloud.

LogDNA is easy to implement and use. Developers don’t need to learn any special query language to utilize the LogDNA platform. Google-like search syntax allows teams to search quickly using standard terms, drastically reducing the learning curve. Security and privacy are also key focuses of the self-hosted log management system: logging is HIPAA, SOC 2, PCI-DSS, and GDPR compliant (Privacy Shield certified).
