Back in 2010, a team of self-described “data nerds” founded Sumo Logic. The vision was to build a platform to deliver–as a cloud native service–machine data analytics for anybody.
It definitely turned out to be the right focus. Consider that today Sumo Logic analyzes 100+ petabytes of data on a daily basis (to put this into perspective, a petabyte consists of 1,000 terabytes or about five years of the Earth Observing System). The platform also performs 30+ million searches and handles a whopping 500+ trillion record queries every day.
