Sumo Logic Signs Definitive Agreement to Acquire Sensu

Sumo Logic, a pioneer in continuous intelligence, it has entered into an agreement to acquire Sensu, a provider of source monitoring software. The acquisition will accelerate Sumo Logic's observability strategy by providing customers with an affordable, extensible, and scalable end-to-end solution for infrastructure and application monitoring. In addition, the acquisition will reinforce Sumo Logic’s commitment to open source to drive deeper engagement with the developer and DevOps communities.

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is anticipated to close in the second quarter of fiscal 2022.

“In today’s software centric businesses, modern applications are developed, deployed, managed, and monitored by developers, DevOps and site reliability teams. The Sensu solution helps them automate monitoring workflows thereby increasing velocity while improving repeatability, reliability, and maintainability,” said Ramin Sayar, president and CEO of Sumo Logic. “Together, we will be able to provide customers with a more cost-effective, cloud agnostic Observability Pipeline, coupled with a comprehensive analytics-based observability platform for infrastructure and application monitoring. We look forward to welcoming the entire Sensu team, maintaining the Sensu community focus and company identity.”

Sensu was founded as an open source initiative focused on solving monitoring challenges associated with the dynamic nature of cloud computing. Today, Sensu delivers monitoring as code for everything from bare metal on-prem infrastructure to cloud-native microservices and applications. Sensu provides broad support for all developer programming languages to help companies transition from traditional to cloud; support for various cloud, data, web and automation platforms; integrations for over 250 third-party applications and services; and compatibility with vast number of OSS monitoring tools, plug-ins and collectors, while consolidating and reducing data silos. Sensu's Observability Pipeline and the vast number of third-party data and community developed plug-ins will become available through a one-click integration with the Sumo Logic SaaS-based Observability Suite to provide instant visualization, analytics and comprehensive support for metrics, events, logs and tracing.

“Anyone building and deploying applications in the modern era needs to incorporate monitoring the same way they’re defining and deploying infrastructure—as code. We believe Sensu will be a perfect addition to the Sumo Logic portfolio as the combined solution will eliminate data silos by filling gaps in observability to bring metrics, logging, and tracing together via a unified pipeline and data platform,” said Caleb Hailey, co-founder and CEO of Sensu. “Built by operators, for operators, open source is at the heart of everything Sensu does. We’re looking forward to joining our active, thriving community of more than 3,000 contributors with the Sumo Logic community and together shape the future of open source observability.”

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is anticipated to close in the second quarter of fiscal 2022.
