Sumo Logic Announced Support for Docker Enterprise at DockerCon 2019

Sumo Logic announced at DockerCon 2019 support for Docker Enterprise to provide joint customers with improved application performance monitoring across the complete application lifecycle. Building on existing Docker capabilities, the new integration provides joint Docker and Sumo Logic customers with improved 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. This ensures not only the health of a customer's applications running on the Docker platform, but also the health of the Docker platform itself for complete visibility into the modern application stack.

As enterprises continue to adopt cloud infrastructures they are also investing in modern tools and processes such as containerization, orchestration and serverless computing to empower them to better build, run and secure their modern application stack. The continued use of the leading containerized platform, Docker, is validated by customer data from Sumo Logic's third annual ‘State of Modern Applications and DevSecOps in the Cloud' report, which shows the usage of Docker among Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers grew from 18 percent (2016) to 28 percent (2018).

As a Sumo Logic customer, Docker can efficiently and effectively monitor and troubleshoot Docker Hub infrastructure to deliver faster release cycles, and to quickly address anomalies and remediate any potential issues for end users downloading images. Docker Hub is the world's largest library of container images for the open source and enterprise community.

"Docker is built on the foundations of agility, collaboration and the desire to push the boundaries of technological innovation," said Kal De, CTO and EVP of product development, Docker. "Sumo Logic shares these same values and so our decision to use Sumo Logic internally was a natural fit. Our customers rely on us to give them the freedom to build, manage and secure applications without the fear of technology or infrastructure lock in, and Sumo Logic provides us with the continuous intelligence and data insights we need to ensure our container platform lives up to that promise."

Furthermore, with the Sumo Logic platform, 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 customizable dashboards from Sumo Logic make it easy for teams to quickly identify issues and push code to production faster while increasing code quality for customers.

"In today's digital economy, the pressure is on organizations now more than ever to invest in technologies that improve speed to market and deliver the best customer experiences," said Christian Beedgen, co-founder and CTO, Sumo Logic. "Containers provide more benefits than traditional virtualization by enabling organizations 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 their machine data analytics platform reinforces the value of machine data for today's digital business and demonstrates our joint commitment to supporting the growing container platform ecosystem."
