SolarWinds Expands SaaS Offerings with Loggly Purchase

SolarWinds, a provider of IT management software, has acquired Loggly, Inc., a provider of cloud-based log monitoring and log analytics software. With the transaction, Solarwinds will also expand its cloud software engineering and analytics expertise.

Loggly provides a SaaS-based, unified log monitoring and log analytics product that aggregates, structures, and summarizes log data so users can analyze and visualize their data to answer key questions, spot trends, and deliver actionable reports.

The SolarWinds Cloud software as a service (SaaS) portfolio includes the Papertrail, AppOptics, and Pingdom products, and collectively gives customers visibility into traces, logs, metrics, and the digital experience.

Former Loggly executives Manoj Chaudhary, CTO and VP, Engineering, and Vito Salvaggio, VP, Product, will join SolarWinds as leaders in engineering and product, respectively. Members of the core development, operations, support, sales, and marketing teams will also transition as part of the transaction.

The Loggly acquisition advances SolarWinds’ strategy to deliver comprehensive, simple, and affordable full-stack monitoring solutions built upon a common, integrated, SaaS-based platform. It is the latest advancement toward the company’s vision of enabling a single view of infrastructure, applications, and digital experience management. Loggly will offer a compelling solution to address use cases where customers need log monitoring and log analytics with structured log data and aggregated events.

The ability to visualize large amounts of data through log analytics is critical to solving many problems in today’s diverse, complex cloud-application and microservices environments, according to Christoph Pfister, executive vice president of products, SolarWinds.  The addition of Loggly to Solarwinds’ portfolio will enable customers to accelerate their time-to-insight and solve problems faster and more affordability, he added.
