What is your experience regarding pricing and costs for ELK Kibana?

Hi,

We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

We're looking into costs now, and because we're dealing with basically government type programs, there's different pricing, so they're putting a report together for me.

I have not set it up or studied licensing.

Hi community, Grafana observability has Grafana for visualization and analytics, Loki for logs, Tempo for traces and Prometheus for metrics while ELK stack has tools like Elasticsearch for search, Logistash for logs and Kibana for visualization.  Which of these 2 platforms would you choose and why? Thank you.

Hi @Faustine Chisasa,  I will go with ELK + Grafana. Elasticsearch is highly distributed, scalable and fast. You got power of storage. Logstash is highly pluggable and rich in plugins. You can use any buffer or streaming platform in Logstash pipeline example: RabbitMQ, Kafka, redis, etc. ELK has watchers alerts. S3 searchable snapshot is the best thing in the latest version of ELK which gives you long retention capabilities and search directly from S3 without restore to Elasticsearch.  Grafana can be used to connect to Elasticsearch and you can use all dashboard templates for monitoring. Metricbeat gives you metrics from On-premise, EC2, Pivotal, cloudfoundry, cloudwatch.  Functionbeat gives you cloudwatch logs.  Grafana needs a separate license and native agents. So all in all, a premium ELK license with open-source Grafana is the best stack for observability.  Cheers, Sunil.

If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering ELK Kibana, what would you say? How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

It's important to do your homework with this solution. I think overall it's a fine product, but you really need to assess what your current needs are, what your future needs are, and see if there's any other competing products out there that might be suitable. My interest at this point is not to replace Elasticsearch. My interest is to either replace or supplement what we have with a different visualization tool. I'd rate this solution an eight out of 10. There's definitely room for improvement.
