What is Cloud Logging?

In the recent years, outsourcing common features like authentication, payment and logging have gained a lot of traction. With Software as a Service (SaaS) and Cloud hosting like Azure, more and more companies trust Cloud providers to implement features previously handled inside the company.

Cloud Logging is the practice of sending out log statements to the Cloud. Setting up a SQL Server or similar may sound like a small task, but handling large amounts of data and making them searchable definitely is not. To help companies overcome the challenges of storing log data, a lot of startups have seen the light of day.

When evaluating Cloud Logging providers, it's important to understand the difference between the various options. While some providers focus on storing and indexing massive amounts of log messages, others (like us) implement features on top of the data, providing systems generating dashboards, allowing error management and more.

  • Outsource hosting to someone else
  • Use the Cloud to scale
  • Combine log messages from many sources
  • Fast indexing and searching logs
  • Don't need to implement error management features yourself and Cloud Logging
