In selecting a log management tool, we evaluated it based on the following three criteria: “the ability to centrally manage logs, including those for Office365,” “the ability to store logs for a long period of time,” and “support for English.
We felt that the log management function of Office365 was easy to use on its own, but considering the log storage period and the time and effort required to manage logs in individual systems, we thought that centralizing the logs was essential.
Long-term storage of logs is one of the most important issues in log management, and the company, which owns a large number of file servers including Windows and NetApp, has been struggling to store the large amount of event logs. However, with the introduction of ALog, this problem was solved. ALog analyzes, converts, and compresses event logs to reduce them to a few thousandths of their original size. This reduces the time and cost of log storage and backup processing.
