All Cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and Oracle Cloud offer Object Storage solutions to economically store large volumes of data and retrieve it on demand. It’s far cheaper to store one petabyte of data in object storage than in block storage. As AWS S3 has become the standard, many on-premise storage appliance vendors have incorporated S3 APIs to store and retrieve data. Oracle wisely continued that trend to OCI (Oracle Cloud Infrastructure).

In the last few years, many organizations I worked with have significantly increased their cloud footprint. I’ve also seen a large percentage of newly launched companies go with cloud services almost exclusively, limiting their on-premises infrastructure to what cannot be done in the cloud — things like WiFi access points in offices or point of sale (POS) hardware for physical stores.

Health data is notoriously difficult to collect, route, and transform. I will demonstrate how to leverage the LogStream Observability Pipeline to solve these problems and help users search their Apple Health data.

Preventing data loss for data in motion is a challenge that LogStream Persistent Queues (PQ) can help prevent when the downstream Destination is unreachable. In this blog post, we’ll talk about how to configure and calculate PQ sizing to avoid disruption while the Destination is unreachable for few minutes or a few hours. The example follows a real-world architecture, in which we have.

It is commonly believed that once data is collected and ingested into a system of analysis, the most difficult part of obtaining the data is complete. However, in many cases, this is just the first step for the infrastructure and security operations teams expected to derive insights.

Shortly before the December holidays, a vulnerability in the ubiquitous Log4J library arrived like the Grinch, Scrooge, and Krampus rolled into one monstrous bundle of Christmas misery. Log4J maintainers went to work patching the exploit, and security teams scrambled to protect millions of exposed applications before they got owned. At Cribl, we put together multiple resources to help security teams detect and prevent the Log4J vulnerability using LogStream.

Here at Cribl, we have a cloud offering of our LogStream product. In building and supporting our cloud product, we have a service-based architecture. And we want to be able to gather metrics from our services, in order to monitor those services and make sure we meet our SLAs.

While I write this blog post, I reflect on the years of being a system administrator and the task of ensuring that no sensitive data made its way past me. What a daunting task right? The idea that sensitive data can make its way through our systems and other tools and reports is terrifying! Not to mention the potential financial/contractual problems this can cause.

Over the last year, we’ve seen tremendous growth in both demand and usage for LogStream Cloud. It is exciting to be able to speed up time to value, reduce the total cost of ownership, and deliver LogStream to customers in a way that best fits their organizational needs. We here at Cribl have been working with our cloud customers to better understand how to optimize LogStream Cloud pricing to provide the best possible ROI.

We see unfriendly customer practices all around in the SIEM space. For example, some major SIEM vendors use an Events Per Second (EPS) license model to monetize access to their tools. Typically, these vendors will drop data above the EPS license or stop data ingestion to incentive license compliance if you run over your EPS license. These license controls disrupt operations and risk enterprise security posture, which can cause chaos.

Cloud Data Warehouses (CDW) were designed to support business intelligence use cases focused on historical data analysis, but less so on “what is happening now?” class of queries. We think operational analytics are the next big focus and we want to discuss the space and how enterprises will connect their operational data to these new tools to get results right now instead of next week.

How do you get the data out of your infrastructure and applications in order to properly observe, monitor, and secure their running states while minimizing overlap, wasted resources, and cost? Many business folks need a broad category of tools in all their environments to solve challenges such as up and down monitoring, metrics, a time series database (TSDB), log analytics, event streaming, security information and event management (SIEM), user behavior analytics (UBA), and data lakes. The answer to the proposed question to solve these hurdles is using an observability pipeline.

Traditional security tools struggle to adapt to the new world of cyber threats. To keep up with the growing number of daily threats, understaffed security teams need new cloud-delivered solutions and tactics focused on generating attack resolutions, consistently and repeatedly. Enter Exabeam. Exabeam powers security teams with analytics-driven insights to uncover, investigate, and resolve threats legacy tools may miss.

Route observability data where it has the most value. Slash costs, improve performance, and get the right data to the right destinations, in the right formats, at the right time.

Cribl is a company built to solve customer challenges and enable customer choice. Its solutions deliver innovative and customizable controls to route security and machine data where it has the most value. We call this an observability pipeline, and it helps slash costs, improve performance, and get the right data, to the right destinations, in the right formats, at the right time.

LogStream Gives You The Simplicity, Flexibility, and Control...

  • To Route Your Data: Send data to the most effective destinations including low-cost storage locations like S3 for long-term retention. Route data to the best tool for the job – or all the tools for the job – by translating and formatting data into any tooling schema you require. Let different departments choose different analytics environments without having to deploy new agents or forwarders.
  • To Reduce Your Data: Reduce as much as 50% of ingested log volume to control costs and improve system performance. Eliminate duplicate fields, null values, and any elements that provide little analytical value. Filter and screen events for dynamic sampling, or aggregate log data into metrics for massive volume reduction. Do all of this without worry: You can keep a full-fidelity copy in a low-cost destination and replay it back if needed.
  • To Collect More Data: LogStream is the best way to get multiple data formats into your analytics tools. Use the LogStream universal receiver to collect from any observability data source – and even to schedule batch collection from multiple APIs. In addition, recall data from low-cost storage to replay logs to analytics tools for later investigations with ad-hoc data collection.
  • To Shape Your Data: Shape all of the data you need to drive decisions about your environment. Translate and transform data from all of your sources to the tools you choose. Get a more complete picture of your data by enriching logs with third-party data. LogStream collects data from all of your sources and shapes it into actionable logs and metrics for analysis.

Cribl’s mission is to unlock the value of all your observability data, regardless of source or destination.
