Sumo Logic is a service for managing and analyzing large quantities of data in the cloud. It uses machine learning algorithms to help extract insights from big data, even in cases where the users don't know what they're looking for. Sumo Logic collects, stores, centralizes, and backs up log data while maintaining both its security and its availability to the owner. Logs are indexed for increased searchability, and users can set alerts to be sent out when certain conditions are met or new patterns appear.
The Sumo Logic API allows users to access resources and log data programmatically, exposing it to other applications and systems via JSON-formatted REST calls.
