Beware the hidden costs of Elasticsearch
Are you evaluating open source log management systems like ELK (Elasticsearch – Logstash – Kibana)? Many organizations choose to self manage their logging infrastructure. They opt for solutions like ELK Stack and deploy these systems within their existing cloud providers’ infrastructures. While the software may be free, 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, EBS, and network transfer fees. However, you can’t ignore the human cost of deploying, managing and scaling Elasticsearch clusters.
CHAOSSEARCH simplifies log management and eliminates Elasticsearch. Now, you can store and search your data directly from your Amazon S3, while freeing up engineers from the burdensome management of Elasticsearch. The result is a low-cost, low-complexity log search and analytics environment. Your engineering team will take back their days, currently dedicated to system management, and instead drive business value for your organization.
Dare to retain months and years of log data
Most businesses archive or delete log and event data after a few days or weeks because it’s too cost-prohibitive to retain with existing log management solutions like Elasticsearch and the ELK Stack. CHAOSSEARCH has extended the Elasticsearch API to run directly on your Amazon S3 account, allowing you to extend your hot Elasticsearch cluster onto Amazon S3 and turn it into a warm data store. Reduce the cost and complexity of your existing hot Elasticsearch ELK Stack and get access to unlimited retention of your log and event data on Amazon S3.
CHAOSSEARCH contains revolutionary new indexing technology that dramatically compresses data and stores all customer indexes in their own Amazon S3 account. Our solutions provides customers with full control over their data allowing 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 needs.
The new standard in log search and analytics
The CHAOSSEARCH platform takes advantage of the low cost and high performance of Amazon S3. The result is unlimited storage of your log and event data.
Now, you can quickly index, search, and analyze months and years of log and event data stored within your own Amazon S3 infrastructure. And, since your Amazon S3 account is the underlying data store, there’s no need to worry about data replication, scaling, or availability. Said another way, no data movement! You can quickly search and analyze months and years of log and event data to identify trends and patterns previously hidden – all at an extremely disruptive price.
The bottom line is that CHAOSSEARCH increases speed to resolution because all of the data you need to diagnose the problem is at your fingertips. No need to move data. No need to transform data. No need to index data. Just search and resolve.
