Scalyr -- The Solution to Your Operational Diagnostics Woes

Don't be limited by the narrow capabilities of traditional tools. All of your operational data -- logs, metrics, and more -- in one place, where you can explore, filter, and analyze at interactive speeds. Enterprise-grade functionality with sane pricing and insane performance. View the feature list to learn more.
