Splunk Cloud vs Sumo Logic: What are the differences?

Developers describe Splunk Cloud as "Easy and fast way to analyze valuable machine data with the convenience of software as a service (SaaS)". If you're looking for all the benefits of Splunk® Enterprise with all the benefits of software-as-a-service, then look no further. Splunk Cloud is backed by a 100% uptime SLA, scales to over 10TB/day, and offers a highly secure environment. On the other hand, Sumo Logic is detailed as "Cloud Log Management for Application Logs and IT Log Data". Cloud-based machine data analytics platform that enables companies to proactively identify availability and performance issues in their infrastructure, improve their security posture and enhance application rollouts. Companies using Sumo Logic reduce their mean-time-to-resolution by 50% and can save hundreds of thousands of dollars, annually. Customers include Netflix, Medallia, Orange, and GoGo Inflight.
