The hidden challenges of logging with Elasticsearch
Are you evaluating open source log management systems like ELK (Elasticsearch – Logstash – Kibana)? Many organizations choose to self manage their logging infrastructure using the ELK Stack and deploy those systems within their existing cloud providers’ infrastructures. The software may be free, but there is always a cost to run any proprietary or open source software. It’s easy to identify the hard costs of an open source software project, such as Amazon EC2 and EBS and network transfer fees. However, you can’t ignore the human cost of deploying, managing and scaling Elasticsearch clusters. With our CHAOSSEARCH SaaS service,
Log search and analytics
The CHAOSSEARCH platform architecture is designed to leverage the low cost and high performance of Amazon S3 to offer unlimited storage of your log and event data. Customers can quickly index, search, and analyze months and years of log and event data stored within their own Amazon S3 infrastructure. Moreover, since your S3 account is the backing data store, there’s no need to worry about data replication, scaling, or availability. Customers can now quickly search and analyze months and years of log and event data to identify trends and patterns previously hidden to them, all at an extremely disruptive price.
Unlimited data retention
CHAOSSEARCH is a powerful new indexing technology that dramatically compresses data and stores all customer indexes in their own Amazon S3 account. Giving customers control over their data allows them to manage the security and lifecycle of their log data, retaining it as long as they wish in their Amazon account. Since CHAOSSEARCH fully indexes all fields in the log event and never returns to the source data after indexing, customers can archive the original data to Amazon Glacier for even more significant cost savings. No longer choose between data retention and your ever-growing Amazon storage costs.
