Improving operational efficiency by eliminating silos
By setting the scope of data access for each team, Weverse quickly provides the data and functions needed without building another cluster separate from the existing platform component.
Weverse previously used ELK (ElasticSearch, Logstash, Kibana) which couldn’t reliably manage large fluctuations in traffic volume. As soon as articles and comments written by artists publish on Weverse, a notification goes out to Weverse members, and log data, which is normally 20GB to 50GB per 10 minutes, explodes to 600GB. Weverse needed a solution to collect log data without loss, even during spontaneous peak load times.
With ELK, it was difficult to handle the explosive amount of data. To prevent log loss, Weverse operated based on the maximum amount of log data but paid Weverse reduces data management costs to drive innovation in fandom culture Toll-Free: 1.855.LOG.SUMO | Int’l: 1.650.810.8700 305 Main Street, Redwood City, CA 94603 www.sumologic.com CASE STUDY | Weverse ©️ Copyright 2022 Sumo Logic, Inc.

In addition, Weverse had to eliminate manual log management. Existing, non-automated solutions were expensive because cold log data, which was accessed less frequently, had to be tiered to a cloud object storage environment and then re-collected when necessary. Now, a single Sumo Logic solution supports segregated data storage tiers, so cold and warm logs are easily available whenever they’re needed.
Weverse leverages many convenient functions from Sumo Logic, capitalizing on its years of experience in log management. Weverse finds Sumo Logic to be engineering-friendly with helpful details, such as role-based access control (RBAC), log management by tier, and integration with cloud solutions such as Okta.
