Upgrade Your Account

How to upgrade depends on your current account type

If your organization currently has a Sumo Logic Free or Sumo Logic Trial account, or if you've already upgraded to a Sumo Logic Professional plan, you can upgrade to a more robust plan at any time. Sumo Logic Professional accounts allow up to 20GB of data volume. All Professional accounts include 20 users, 30 days of data retention, and data forwarding.

Upgrades are processed immediately—meaning that your organization can take advantage of having a higher data volume right away.

Upgrades to Sumo Logic Enterprise accounts are handled through a Sumo Logic sales representative. Not sure who to contact? Send an email to

Who can upgrade my organization's account?

It depends on your current account type:

  • If your organization currently has a Sumo Logic Free account, any admin can perform the upgrade. That admin is then known as the account owner, meaning that he or she is the only person in the account that can view and change the credit card information billed by Sumo Logic. 
  • If your organization already has a Sumo Logic Professional account, only the existing Account Owner can perform upgrades.
  • Sumo Logic Enterprise accounts do not have account owners, as all upgrades are handled by a Sumo Logic salesperson.

Can I upgrade more than once?

Yes. An admin can upgrade from Sumo Logic Free to Sumo Logic Professional. Or, an account owner can upgrade a Sumo Logic Professional account to a higher level of data volume, up to 20 GB. If you need additional data volume, you can simply request to be upgraded to a Sumo Logic Enterprise account by contacting
