CrowdStrike brings 'observability to everyone' with Humio release

By Catherine Knowles, Tue 19 Oct 2021

CrowdStrike has released its Humio Community Edition, with the intention of bringing Humio's streaming observability to everyone.

Available immediately, the new offering enables users to ingest 16 GB of data per day and retain the data up to seven days, while giving users ongoing access with no limited trial period.

Additionally, customers can ingest and use their Falcon Data Replicator (FDR) data within Humio Community Edition. This allows customers to stream data at scale and in real-time, helping teams to prevent, recover from and understand the root cause of incidents, the company states.

Built for the cloud, Humio Community Edition streams structured and unstructured data, and provides users instant access to data with index-free searching, real-time alerts and live dashboards.

This gives DevOps, ITOps and SecOps teams timely insights required to improve performance across distributed systems and explore threats and vulnerabilities.

Humio's live observability is designed to improve the quality and reliability of systems in real-time, and help operations teams both proactively prepare for the unknown and recover from incidents.

CrowdStrike chief executive officer and co-founder George Kurtz says, “I want everyone to experience the power of Humio. With Humio Community Edition, Humio provides the most powerful capabilities needed for modern observability.

"Humio is able to ingest any data, structured or unstructured, in streaming speeds and at scale, unlike any other solution currently available in the market.

"Humio’s log management platform is unmatched in speed, performance and storage abilities, and Humio Community Edition offers customers unprecedented access to best-in-class log management that you won’t see anywhere else for absolutely free. Humio Community Edition is a game changer.”

Key benefits include:

Ingestion and retention: Cloud users can ingest up to 16GB of structured and unstructured data per day and retain the logs for up to seven days.

User experience: Humio Community Edition offers users ongoing access to Humio's platform with no trial period or credit card requirements.

Sample CrowdStrike Falcon Data Replicator (FDR): FDR sample data is included into the Humio Community Edition for users to try. FDR can now also be ported into Humio to improve threat hunting capabilities and forensics at speed and at scale. Users can retain Falcon Data for longer, run live searches in real time and extend observability.

Full introduction to Humio: Humio Community Edition provides access to Humio's modern architecture and capabilities, including data streaming, index-free search and advanced compression technology, along with access to Humio's marketplace and CrowdStrike FDR.

CrowdStrike is also providing users access to Humio's marketplace and packages that extend Humio's functionality, as well as guides to develop and share new packages with the community.
