Humio is modern log management, purpose-built for today ’s
complex systems. The platform is built with two key differentiators
making real time analytics possible at scale, delivering high com-
pression on storage and enabling the ability to ask anything and
get instant responses: data streaming and index-free architecture.
Humio has a strong ecosystem and is integrated with some of the
leading technologies. The company has a strong customer base
that spans across industries and companies of all sizes including
some of the largest brands globally.

Humio was the first to offer an uncompromised Unlimited Self-hosted Plan, available since 2018. Enterprises that adopt this plan are able to log everything without concern for reducing data or paying for additional ingest.
In 2020, Humio deepens its leadership in this new market category with the announcement of a new Unlimited Ingest for the Cloud Plan coming this year. This significantly changes the cost of scaling in a SaaS environment by providing customers similar benefits as Humio’s Unlimited Self-hosted Plan.
Humio’s Unlimited Plans enable enterprise organizations to understand the health and security of their environment. Humio ingests streaming logs, metrics, traces, and events, runs alerts and scripts, and updates visualizations in real time.
No matter how many terabytes of data you send to Humio, all the data is available to search immediately, allowing for a more thorough investigation, and faster time to recovery.
According to Gartner’s 2019 Hype Cycle for IT Performance Analysis,
“Observability tools have the potential to reduce both the number of service outages and their impact and severity. Their use by organizations can improve the quality of software because previously invisible (unknown) defects and anomalies are identified and corrected.” 2
With Humio’s Unlimited Plans, organizations are better prepared for the unknown. By logging everything, Humio can help customers uncover anomalies, threats, and problems as they happen, without worrying about filtering out data or fields in advance.
Humio makes it easy to search months or even years of data to get to the root of what happened. Because Humio is index-free, every part of every log is available for searching. Getting instant responses motivates users to ask more questions and derive more insights from their data.
Logging everything reduces mean-time-to-recovery (MTTR), and increases the likelihood of finding the root cause of an incident.
Gartner calls central log management
“an important, but often undervalued, tool for an organization’s threat management capabilities and compliance requirements.” They advise clients to “invest in central log management tools with efficient storage, fast search, and flexible visualization to enhance investigation/analysis of security incidents and support threat hunting.” 3
Humio is built from the ground up to leverage today’s modern hardware.
Humio not only eliminates the need for bulky index files, but it compresses data by 5-15x or more, making it more efficient to store, transfer, and compute.
Humio is designed for streaming data, and leverages Bucket Storage as primary storage to make deployments of Humio cheaper, faster, and easier to run. This enables infinite retention, and storage of huge volumes of live data at low costs.
Through 2024, Gartner predicts that 40% of enterprises will have reduced their storage and data protection costs by over 70% by implementing new storage technologies and deployment methods. 4
Collecting and analyzing ever-increasing volumes of log data adds business value to enterprises, especially to strengthen security, enhance operational efficiency, and increase customer satisfaction.
Humio removes the biggest single barrier to effective log management: the cost of collecting enough data to make the effort worthwhile. Humio's Unlimited Plans let you collect, search, and store terabytes of data without ingest limits.

How much does it cost to run a free open source stack? With hefty hardware requirements and support costs needed to set up and maintain the stack, it’s easy to spend many times more than the total cost of a modern, purpose-built tool like Humio.
