2021. Market demand for cybersecurity products helps Devo raise $250M

Devo, a startup focused on log management and cybersecurity, announced this morning that it has closed a $250 million round of funding. In corporate-speak. Devo sells “cloud-native logging and security analytics.” In the simplest terms, Devo has built a service that compiles log files from customers into a central repository, storing 400 days’ worth of the data in a quickly retrievable fashion. From there, it offers two products that pull from those stored log files: one focused on cybersecurity and the other focused on IT support.

2020. Log management platform Logit improves its performance

Popular log management and analysis platform Logit have just announced that their improved NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) SSDs backed infrastructure is in place for all Elastic Stacks hosted on the platform. The team at Logit realised that many enterprise-level organisations have yet to reap the benefits of using NVMe for faster more efficient management & analysis of their log data so are pleased to be able to bring this improvement for all new and existing users. NVMe is one of the newest high-performance networking technologies changing the landscape of scalable infrastructure and assisting in decreasing infrastructure costs on a revolutionary scale. This is part of Logit’s continuous improvement of their platform & is offered free of charge to all users as of the end of June 2020.

2015. Server log monitoring tool Scalyr raises $2.1M

Scalyr, a log-monitoring service that gives developers more insight into how their applications are performing, has raised a $2.1 million seed round. The idea behind Scalyr, then, is to get all data from server logs, as well as various metrics, error reports and other performance data and run it through a single tool that you can get actionable data from. Services like Splunk and Loggly offer similar log management services, but those tools make it easy to see anecdotes and it’s hard to roll that up into an overview. Scalyr also doesn’t see New Relic as a competitor either because that company’s focus tends to be on performance, while Scalyr focuses more on errors. Log files can quickly grow very large, and analyzing them takes quite a bit of compute power. The team built a new data management engine for its service to handle all of this data.
