June 7, 2021
LogStream 3.0 is the latest version of the company's flagship solution for
making multi-system observability a reality for any organization. The company is
also announcing the general availability of LogStream Cloud, the
software-as-a-service consumption option first announced at the end of last
"LogStream 3.0 and Cloud are a watershed moment for the industry. Standing up an
observability pipeline requires careful infrastructure planning. Observability
data comes in thousands of shapes and sizes, and in today's world customers are
left copy and pasting configuration snippets found in obscure repos to try to
best shape, enrich, and reduce their data sets," said Clint Sharp, co-founder &
CEO of Cribl. "With the launch of LogStream 3.0 and Cloud, customers can get
value in minutes and then share all their hard-won knowledge easily with the
broader Cribl community."
With data growing at the astronomical rate of over 25% YoY in the past several
years and IDC is predicting that by 2025, enterprises will be managing 250% more
data than in 2020, the goal of capturing more data while spending less requires
a fundamental shift in data collection, reduction, routing, and optimization.
Global organizations including TransUnion, Autodesk, and Shutterfly are solving
this problem with Cribl LogStream.
LogStream is a next generation log router that collects and optimizes data
streams from existing installed and known agent(s), then shapes and routes data
to analytics systems in real-time while maintaining high-fidelity data in
low-cost storage. In this release, Cribl introduces LogStream Packs, a powerful
framework for rapidly accelerating deployments, and formally releases LogStream
Cloud, a SaaS-based deployment model for LogStream. LogStream Packs framework
allows organizations and communities of data engineers to scale their expertise
by building and sharing LogStream configuration models that can be rapidly
deployed without the need to reconfigure common use cases.

business decisions.," stated Gov Gopal, Principal Technologist and SRE, MIAX
Exchange Group. "With the introduction of Packs in LogStream 3.0, I anticipate
