ELK Stack is the Open Source Alternative to Splunk
ELK Stack is an open-source centralized logging solution based on Elasticsearch for collecting, parsing, and storing logs. Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana when used together, form an end-to-end stack (ELK Stack) and real-time data analytics tool that provides actionable insights from almost any type of structured and unstructured data source. Managed ELK Stack removes the overhead of managing your own solution, while allowing you to retain control.
ELK Stack is set up according to best practices and designed by ELK Stack experts to enable a high degree of flexibility and scalability, in either open source or Windows environments. As a result, you are able to retain and improve the value of your unique Logging solution over time, including filters and dashboards.
Open source solutions are not “free.” The effort required to scope, develop and deploy an open source solution can sometimes be daunting. If you are considering developing your own logging solution with ELK Stack, Stratalux will save you valuable time and money, providing you with a hosted, fully-managed turnkey solution.
