Published On: January 22, 2018Categories: Buzz, Uncategorized

SolarWinds, an Austin, Texas-based IT management software vendor, announced that it has completed the acquisition of Loggly, Inc., which has developed a SaaS-based, unified log monitoring and log analytics product that aggregates, structures, and summarizes log data to enable extensive analysis by users.

The acquisition advances SolarWinds’ strategy to deliver comprehensive, simple, and affordable full-stack monitoring solutions built upon a common, seamlessly integrated, SaaS-based platform.

“Rapidly visualizing vast amounts of data through log analytics is absolutely critical to solving many problems in today’s diverse, complex cloud-application and microservices environments,” said Christoph Pfister, executive vice president of products at SolarWinds. “Adding Loggly to our industry-leading portfolio will empower customers to accelerate their time-to-insight and solve problems faster, with our usual, disruptive affordability.”

With the acquisition, SolarWinds also will deepen its cloud-software engineering and analytics expertise. 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 to Solar Winds as part of the transaction.
