Cribl, an observability pipeline company, announced the industry’s first cloud-managed edge architecture for observability pipelines with the release of LogStream Cloud Enterprise Edition.
Starting October 18, LogStream Cloud customers with globally distributed organizations can scale their observability infrastructure to secure, manage and process nearly an infinite amount of event data in real time from a single cloud interface regardless of where the data is generated.
The surge in remote work, increasing frequency and complexity of security attacks, and heightened privacy and compliance requirements are causing a massive proliferation of machine-generated data. Companies are tasked with trying to collect and process as much of this data as possible without racking up huge costs or increasing complexity, all while optimizing tool usage. Some vendors have introduced cloud-based solutions to try and solve this issue, but they often lack flexibility, don’t scale, and contain hidden transit costs and security concerns.
LogStream Cloud creates a cloud-managed observability infrastructure by implementing an architecture that separates the configuration, management, control and policy enforcement from the processing of local data and only exchanges control information with local processing nodes through cryptographically secured, zero-trust tunnels. Processing nodes operate on data locally, preventing private data from ever leaving the control and premises of the data owner.
Cribl’s release also introduces a new capability called LogStream QuickConnect, a point-and-click configuration tool that allows users to connect any data source to multiple destinations, including popular tools such as Syslog, Elastic, and Splunk, as well as emerging standards like OpenTelemetry. QuickConnect is available with LogStream and LogStream Cloud.
The LogStream Cloud enhancements will be available October 18 and LogStream QuickConnect within the next 30 days. For additional information, visit the Cribl blog.
