Cloud computing

Sumo Logic (Nasdaq: SUMO), the pioneer in continuous intelligence, and IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced the availability of Sumo Logic’s Continuous Intelligence Platform™ on Red Hat Marketplace, the open cloud marketplace for enterprise customers that offers a simpler way to buy and deploy certified container-based software. Sumo Logic will offer its cloud-native security and observability solutions for companies running on the Red Hat OpenShift platform, helping them to deploy faster and achieve insights into their cloud and hybrid infrastructures, applications, and services.

Ramin Sayar, President and CEO at Sumo Logic said: “Companies want to streamline the procurement, deployment, and management of their container applications. Sumo’s Logic’s Continuous Intelligence Platform allows them to get all their data into one place for observability, security, and business intelligence and to reduce administrative labor. We are excited about our collaboration with IBM to offer our Continuous Intelligence Platform with Red Hat OpenShift on Red Hat Marketplace, making it easier for customers to take advantage of our DevSecOps platform as they modernize and or migrate their applications across hybrid cloud environments.”

Sumo Logic achieved Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification status based on the support of the Continuous Intelligence Platform’s cloud-native and hybrid cloud environments, and compatibility with Red Hat OpenShift. As part of the certification, Sumo Logic will extend the company’s existing Kubernetes collection agents to Red Hat’s OpenShift Operator model, designed to make it easier to deploy and manage data from customers’ OpenShift Kubernetes clusters. An IDC study[1] sponsored by Red Hat revealed that partners can achieve an average of 49% higher revenue for software products that have been certified by Red Hat, as customers increasingly either require or prefer certified solutions.

“As an industry leader, we are constantly evolving our digital presence to enhance the customer and employee experience,” said Rajesh Gajula, Director IT Devops and Cloud Engineering, for Tailored Brands, Inc. “Our OpenShift-backed architecture has accelerated our cloud migration efforts and enables a new operating model for our technology platform. Connecting Sumo Logic’s Continuous Intelligence Platform with our clusters in Red Hat OpenShift has enabled us to drive greater operational visibility and application reliability as part of our digital transformation.”

For companies building cloud-native infrastructure and applications, Red Hat Marketplace is an essential destination for unlocking the value of cloud investments, designed to minimize the barriers facing global organizations as they accelerate innovation.

Bob Lord, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Ecosystems at IBM said: “Red Hat Marketplace is a one stop shop for enterprises to seamlessly deploy and manage software across hybrid cloud environments, spanning multiple clouds and on-premises. Sumo Logic’s certification for Red Hat OpenShift, along with their availability on Red Hat Marketplace, can help deliver innovation and value for clients via containerized workloads and the simplified deployment and management of data. We’re pleased to welcome them to the Marketplace.”

“We believe Red Hat Marketplace is an essential destination to unlock the value of cloud investments,” said Lars Herrmann, vice president, Partner Ecosystems, Product & Technologies, Red Hat. “Our goal with the marketplace, is to make it faster and easier for companies to implement the tools and technologies that can help them succeed in this hybrid multicloud world. We’ve simplified the steps to find and purchase tools like Sumo Logic’s Continuous Intelligence Platform that are tested for, certified by and supported on Red Hat OpenShift, and we’ve removed operational barriers to deploying and managing these technologies on Kubernetes-native infrastructure.”
