Sumo Logic has entered into an agreement to acquire open source monitoring company Sensu for an undisclosed sum. 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.

Sensu was founded as an open source initiative focused on solving monitoring challenges associated with the dynamic nature of cloud computing. Today, Sensu is a robust turn-key Observability Pipeline that delivers monitoring as code for everything from bare metal on-premises infrastructure to cloud native microservices and applications.

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.

“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,” said Caleb Hailey, co-founder and CEO of Sensu.

The transaction is likely to close in the second quarter of fiscal 2022.
