Logentries Launches Free Logging for Docker Community

Logentries, the leading provider of scalable, real-time log management and analytics, today launched a free log management and analytics service available exclusively for the Docker Community. As a Docker Technology Partner, Logentries' newest offering will ease the transition many organizations are facing as they migrate to container environments. Logentries' elastic solution provides a free and flexible way to get up and running with Docker monitoring easily and cost-effectively. The Logentries service for Docker includes free logging for Docker deployments, automatically supporting up to 100 containers, and removing cost as an obstacle to building new services on the Docker technology. Docker users are provided with a complimentary, all-access 30-day Logentries premium trial (including advanced features and unlimited data), and a free perpetual account for easy log centralization, search and monitoring.

"The integration between Logentries and Docker is seamless," said Nick Andren, Developer, TrackIf. "Tying log data to the containers themselves and visualizing them through the Logentries dashboards have offered insight into the overall heath and behavior of our many testing systems, which is something that we can't get by monitoring within the hosted applications alone."

IT and Dev Ops teams running containers find a lack of deep visibility into container-level performance and activity to be one of the biggest obstacles to managing and optimizing a container environment efficiently. Managing these environments as they scale quickly, and generate unpredictable volumes of log data in varied formats, requires an elastic log collection and real-time monitoring service that easily expands and adapts to changing environments and log data quantities. Logentries' flexible offering is built to support fluctuating log volumes and adapt dynamically to varied data types, including container-level log data, Docker API events and host-level events. By offering free and scalable capacity for Docker logging, users are not restricted by cost or capacity, and can quickly understand activity, performance, and trends at the individual container level and across their environment.

"We are launching free logging for the Docker Community because we recognize the role Docker is playing in removing barriers for mass innovation, and believe that log management and analytics can help teams more easily move to a Docker environment," said Trevor Parsons, Chief Scientist, Logentries. "Using Logentries' elastic logging service provides a scalable and cost-effective approach to easily understanding and optimizing containers and the broader environments in which containers are running."

The Logentries free Docker Logging plan gives users a flexible, scalable service that can be beneficial for teams developing, testing and deploying Docker. Docker users can collect all of their Docker logs - from Gigabytes to Terabytes - in one place; centralize logs for efficient management and analysis; and search in real-time to pinpoint problems and troubleshoot quickly. To get started with the free Docker Logging offer, users can simply sign-up for a free Logentries account and start sending their Docker log data immediately. Free account users will have all-inclusive access to Logentries for the first 30 days - featuring Live Tail, Dashboards, real-time Tags and Alerts, Anomaly Detection, and more. After the 30-day trial, users can choose to continue using the full service, or switch to the free Docker Logging account that automatically supports up to 100 containers, subject to the Logentries Docker Acceptable Usage Policy, which is intended to prevent individual instances of bandwidth and data processing abuse.
