By on

According to a new press release, Sumo Logic has introduced its HELM Chart V4 feature, designed to fully unify data collection, as part of its commitment to OpenTelemetry (OTel). With this new feature, organizations can easily package, configure, and deploy applications and services on Kubernetes clusters, using OpenTelemetry as the default collection method. This approach simplifies the gathering of metrics, events, logs, and traces, streamlining the data collection process. HELM Chart V4 eliminates the need for third-party solutions like Fluentbit, Fluentd, and Prometheus, reducing the complexity and cost associated with data collection.

The primary benefits of Sumo Logic’s HELM Chart V4 include reducing the complexity and cost of data collection by fully unifying the collection of logs, metrics, and traces. This approach not only streamlines the deployment process but also minimizes required updates and potential security risks. Additionally, the use of OpenTelemetry for data collection results in improved performance with lower CPU consumption, leading to cost efficiencies for organizations.

Tej Redkar, chief product officer for Sumo Logic, emphasized the company’s commitment to OpenTelemetry data collection, which aims to provide customers and the community with a more efficient and unified data collection experience for Kubernetes. The goal is to enable faster troubleshooting, allowing DevOps teams to focus on deploying code and delivering better insights for digital businesses.

Sumo Logic’s HELM Chart V4 unifies the OpenTelemetry pipeline, providing real-time operational insights for digital businesses through unified collection, auto-instrumentation, and pre-canned configurations, ultimately enhancing the Kubernetes monitoring experience and driving adoption among developers and DevOps teams.
