The new offering includes seamless integrations to various Azure services as well as built-in monitoring dashboards and crowdsourced machine learning capabilities.
Logz.io, an intelligent and scalable machine data analytics platform, has partnered with Microsoft to offer its ELK-as-a-service on Microsoft Azure.
This means Azure customers can now easily deploy, run and scale ELK through a managed offering.
The Logz.io ELK-as-a-Service provides Azure customers with access to one of the world’s most popular machine data diagnostics technology, ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana) with the added simplicity and intelligence of a fully managed service.
It provides engineers with the flexibility and transparency of open source along with additional enterprise management capabilities and powerful artificial intelligence.
According to Logz.io, its AI is based on crowdsourced machine learning capabilities to enable engineering teams to identify and remediate issues faster before they affect production. This allows engineers to focus more of their valuable time and energy on core engineering challenges that directly affect performance and reliability.
Julia Liuson, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft’s developer division, commented, “Our partnership with Logz.io will strengthen Microsoft Azure ties with the developer community, enabling teams to easily build and monitor their products using ELK.”
A Common Vision
The companies aim to empower engineers to work independently with the flexibility to build and run software on their own terms.
Logz.io on Azure provides a seamless integration with various Azure resources as well as built-in monitoring dashboards, enabling customers to easily analyze data within existing workflows with pay-as-you-go convenience.
Logz.io is currently offered across six Azure regions: Western Europe, Eastern US, Eastern US 2, Western US 2, Northern Europe, and Southeast Asia.
“ELK is the most popular log analytics engine in the world, and engineers need a seamless way to access and run this technology at scale. Our partnership with Microsoft enables this for engineers across the world,” said Tomer Levy, co-founder and CEO of Logz.io.
