Sumo Logic cracks on with support for Docker Enterprise

Cloud-native machine data analytics platform company Sumo Logic has used its time in the ring at DockerCon 2019 to announce support for Docker Enterprise.

The company wants to provide joint customers with application performance monitoring and, building on existing Docker capabilities, the new integration provides joint users with monitoring and troubleshooting of the Docker infrastructure, as well as better correlation of issues between the Docker platform and the application for faster root cause analysis.

The intention is to provide not only a view of the health of a customer’s applications running on the Docker platform, but also the health of the Docker platform itself for more complete visibility.

The company says that as enterprises continue to adopt cloud infrastructures they are also investing in tools and processes including containerisation, orchestration and serverless computing in what is now shaping up to be the modern application stack.

As a Sumo Logic customer, Docker can monitor and troubleshoot Docker Hub infrastructure to deliver release cycles and to address anomalies and remediate potential issues for end users downloading images.

Kal De, CTO and EVP of product development at Docker reminds us that Docker Hub is the world’s largest library of container images for the open source and enterprise community.

“Containers provide more benefits than traditional virtualisation by enabling organisations to build more efficient applications that leverage microservices architecture and can be orchestrated across private and multi-cloud environments. Our goal is to empower the people who power modern business and to have Docker employ Sumo Logic as its machine data analytics platform reinforces the value of machine data,” said Christian Beedgen, co-founder and CTO, Sumo Logic.

With Sumo Logic, Docker quality engineering and customer support teams are given additional tools to improve the product release process and to reduce the time needed to solve customer issues.

Advanced analytics, real-time alerting and customisable dashboards from Sumo Logic are said to make it easy for teams to identify issues and push code to production faster while increasing code quality.
