The observability data platform, LogDNA, today announced general availability for multiple platform capabilities that aim to enable companies to get more out of log data while also keeping costs in check. 

With this, enterprise users can now access Variable Retention and Enterprise Organizations, while all users gain new log control features such as, Log Data Restoration, Usage Quotas, and Index Rate Alerting.

According to the company, these new features work to make it easier for users to access the value of log data within key workflows without having to deal with storage challenges and unpredictable costs.

With Variable Retention, enterprise users have the flexibility to save logs in the LogDNA UI only for the time that they are relevant. Rules for this can be set up by specifying a LogDNA search syntax to match relevant logs with the desired retention length. 

Additionally, Enterprise Organizations offers enterprise users more granularity in how they organize their accounts. This allows users with large deployment scenarios to fine-tune account setups with different levels of access and SSO management.

Next, all users now have access to Log Data Restoration, allowing them to restore log data into LogDNA so they can view and search logs; Usage Quotas, to provide users with flexibility when controlling their log retention time; and Index Rate Alerting, which allows for the monitoring of index rate of logs and receiving of alerts for activity spikes. 

“From the largest enterprises to hypergrowth startups, companies need tools that enable them to continue growing their businesses without being burdened by things like runaway logging bills or data being trapped in storage,” said Tucker Callaway, CEO of LogDNA. “LogDNA’s new features provide a level of control for both data and resources, which in turn opens up more use cases that help unlock the power of log data.”
