The Business and Engineering Case to Replace ELK Stack

The central unifying idea behind many technology trends today is acknowledging that every company is becoming a software company. As organizations modernize their infrastructure and applications with cloud and microservices-based architecture, they routinely generate terabytes of log data per day. Businesses urgently need an affordable log analytics solution that provides real-time analytics and scales to their needs.

The Elastic Stack (also known as the ELK stack) is one of the popular solutions for log data analytics. Many organizations find the ELK stack attractive because it is open source, has an extensive feature set, is simple to get started, and is seemingly cost-effective.
