The ELK Stack is popular because it fulfills a need in the log analytics space.Splunk’s enterprise software has long been the market leader, but its numerous functionalities are increasingly not worth the expensive price — especially for smaller companies such as Sas S products and tech startups.

The performance of virtual machines in the cloud can greatly fluctuate based on the specific loads, infrastructure servers, environments, and number of active users.

As a result, reliability and node failures can become significant problems.

We offer a method to use ELK as a service in a way that is highly available, infinitely scalable, and takes only five minutes to set up.

Plus, we have added our own enterprise features including alerts, ELK-centric applications, and multi-user support with defined levels of role-based access.

After all, what is being called “big data analytics” is increasingly important for a number of reasons — particularly when it comes to the cloud.

Kibana is a visualization layer that works on top of Elasticsearch.

Together, these three different open source products are most commonly used in log analysis in IT environments (though there are many more use cases for the ELK Stack starting including business intelligence, security and compliance, and web analytics).

You can also start a free trial of the predictive, cloud-based log management platform that is built on top of the open-source ELK Stack and can be used for functions including log analysis, application and infrastructure monitoring, security and compliance, and business intelligence.
