The Hoot - Episode 17 - Humio Engineering: Christian Hvitved and Anders Jensen
An engineering-focused discussion about joins, bucket storage, and other new Humio features
February 25th, 2020
Christian and Anders introduce themselves, and share a bit about their background. They then describe in more detail a few of the features that were recently announced.
Humio now supports bucket storage designed for streaming data from major cloud providers. Christian and Anders explain the process behind prioritizing the feature, and how they worked with customers to make it seamless.
“Lately we’ve been running into customers that are logging two-digit terabytes per day, and who also may have a requirement to save their logs for a year. With traditional SSDs or spinning disks, that would be really hard and very expensive. But with bucket storage, it’s suddenly affordable.”

“Users in the system won’t see this. The data will just be stored. And if they search back in time that’s only available in bucket storage, they will just type in their search, and it will just work.”
