Spike Protection Helps Keep Data Spend Low

LogDNA unveiled Spike Protection to give companies more control over fluctuations in their data and spend. With these new capabilities, development and operations teams have the freedom to rapidly deploy applications with guardrails in place to know if their ingestion spikes as a result.

In cloud-native and microservices environments, developers have an increasingly difficult time managing the spikes of log data, which often leads to surprise overage costs. Legacy vendors present storage as the solution, but this requires a substantial investment and often increases complexity, creating additional cycles for debugging. LogDNA Spike Protection gives DevOps teams the necessary tools to understand and manage increases through Index Rate Alerting and Usage Quotas. This provides additional insight into anomalous data spikes, making it faster to pinpoint the root cause so that admins can choose to store or exclude contributing logs.

"LogDNA Spike Protection gives developers greater control over the flow of log data to ensure that teams get the insights they need, while also giving them the ability to better control spend," said Tucker Callaway, CEO, LogDNA. "Budget owners gain peace of mind knowing they are in control of their costs and developers maintain access to the data they need to accelerate release velocity and improve application reliability."
