Scalyr was architected for speed, simplicity and shareability. Scalyr’s log management platform is made for engineers who are at the forefront of continuous software delivery, building and releasing code multiple times per day. Scalyr drastically enhances velocity by changing the speed at which users can troubleshoot issues and prevent problems.

According to the “Cool Vendor in Performance Analysis, AIOps Focus,” “By 2022, 40% of large enterprises will use artificial intelligence for IT operations (AIOps) tools to support or replace monitoring and service desk tasks, up from 5% today.”

Customers using Scalyr experience the following key benefits:

  • Fast. Scalyr ingests data rapidly, shows split-second data visualizations, and performs 96 percent of queries in less than a second, regardless of length or complexity. Customers visualize data, get real-time alerts, investigate minor problems before they grow, and troubleshoot issues in record time.
  • Simple. The Scalyr interface enables point-and-click queries, pivots, and filters. The platform is easy to install and set up for quick time-to-value. Teams get up and running quickly, query language expertise or not.
  • Shareable. Employees can self-serve without needing special training, and adding users doesn’t impact performance. Team members visualize data and troubleshoot their own issues. Customers move away from the log management “gatekeeper” model and empower whole teams without an additional cost per user.

“Scalyr is growing incredibly rapidly; we now have more than two hundred customers. The rate at which customers are adopting our platform validates engineers’ need for observability tools that are fast, simple, and shareable, especially when those engineers are monitoring revenue-generating software within rapidly-growing businesses,” said Steve Newman, chief executive officer of Scalyr. “Customers like Baidu, Business Insider, and Grab need to move quickly to maintain a high level of application performance. Scalyr is an essential component of their cloud stack.”

Scalyr features a purpose-built, streamlined database that doesn’t rely on an expensive keyword index. It applies the full compute power of its multi-tenant, massively parallel cluster to each and every query, filter, or visualization. Scalyr is a market leader in speed and performance, reaching query throughput of up to 1.5 TB per second and with more than 96% of searches completing in under one second.
