Building the Future of Data for IT and Security

Officially Worldwide: Cribl.Cloud and Cribl Search are now available in EMEA!

November 8, 2023

At Cribl, we give the people what they want. And what they want is to keep their data close to their sources and destinations. The less data has to travel, the better — lower latency and fewer security risks. This commitment to data locality is even more pronounced among our valued customers in the EMEA region, who are enthusiastically embracing cloud-first strategies.

This excitement drives our latest milestone: the launch of our inaugural international cloud region, AWS EU-central-1, located in Frankfurt, Germany. We’re also thrilled to announce the availability of Cribl Search to our EMEA users, a powerful tool to help search data in place without having to collect and store that data first.

Cribl is committed to forging strong EMEA partnerships, capitalizing on local expertise, and further establishing ourselves as a trusted and reliable provider to give customers around the globe what they want — greater choice & control over their data.

New Cloud Region in Frankfurt

EMEA-based users, as well as global companies that have users in EMEA, now have more options when it comes to deploying Cribl products. When creating a new Cribl.Cloud organization, they can select from the following available AWS regions:

    • US-West – 2 (Oregon)
    • US-East – 1 (N. Virginia)
    • EU-Central – 1 (Frankfurt)

With more regions to come in the near future!

Cribl.Cloud Regions


If your data sources and destinations are primarily in EMEA, then choosing a cloud region based in the EU offers several advantages:

  1. Faster performance. Supporting low latency architecture and keeping data close to sources, destinations, and users helps minimize the time it takes for data to travel and for actions to be taken. Systems can provide faster response times and real-time processing of data, enhancing overall experiences.
  2. Save on data transfer costs. For companies headquartered in or near EMEA, having their Org in Germany can lead to significant cost savings. This is because data doesn’t have to travel long distances, reducing data transfer expenses.
  3. Enhance data security and safeguard sensitive data. Cribl.Cloud gives you control over who has permission to access Cribl products, capabilities, and resources, providing field-level encryption at rest and in transit, as well as authorization support. This decreases the risks of unauthorized access, data breaches, and non-compliance penalties.

Search Search Baby!

One of the most exciting aspects of this announcement is that EMEA users now have access to Cribl Search. Cribl Search performs federated “search-in-place” queries on any data in any format at any location, increasing the scope of analysis without requiring the cost or complexity of first shipping, ingesting, and storing the data.

With Search, you can sift through data in major object stores like Amazon S3, Amazon Security Lake, Azure Blob, and Google Cloud Storage, and enrich your insights by querying dozens of live API endpoints from various SaaS providers. The power of Cribl Search lies in its strategic approach of searching data-in-place: then forward only critical data to your systems of analysis, thus avoiding the expense of having to ingest all your raw data.

Cribl’s Investment in EMEA

We’re not stopping at simply expanding our product suite and availability. Cribl recognizes the abundant talent pool in EMEA and is dedicated to cultivating a strong international team. We’re actively recruiting and have established teams in the UK, DACH, Nordic countries, the Netherlands, and the Middle East. We’re gaining significant momentum across all Go-To-Market (GTM) functions, encompassing expansions and new hires within sales, sales engineering, customer success, customer support, and marketing.

We’re also broadening our partner ecosystem and are focused on cultivating EMEA partnerships, with the aim to diversify our partners’ portfolio offerings to help them better support customers on their cloud journeys. We’re thrilled to welcome a growing number of EU-based resellers and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to our Cribl Partner community. This expansion allows us to reach a wider base and better cater to the increasing demand for Cribl products and services.

In terms of operations, we’re excited to share the recent establishment of entities in both the UK and the Netherlands, further solidifying our commitment to serving the region.

“It’s great to see Cribl’s ongoing commitment to EMEA customers and partners, with investments in top-tier talent and our EU-hosted cloud infrastructure. Our mission is to empower organisations in EMEA with the choice and control they need over their data. This continued investment enables us to provide innovative solutions that enable our customers to harness the full potential of their IT and Security data while maintaining compliance and sovereignty within the European market. We are immensely proud of the customer and partner footprint we have in the region to date, and this will continue to scale with increased velocity.”

-Charlie Howe, Vice President of EMEA, Cribl
