No-code Elastic Stack Platform on Kubernetes in EKS, AKS, GKE

What is Elastic Stack+ Platform

Elastic Stack+ Platform provides the ability to aggregate logs from all your systems and applications, analyze these logs, and create visualizations for application and infrastructure monitoring, faster troubleshooting, security analytics on the Kubernetes platform. Therefore, you can focus your business applications without managing Elastic Stack clusters.

snapblocs dashboard allows a user to manage the lifecycle of Elastic ELK Stack stack (start, update, terminate) and monitor the runtime behavior of the stack through build-in Observability features that measure how internal states of the components are healthy. Also, it allows you to perform overall administrative tasks like scaling up the cluster to increase its capacity.



Elastic Stack+ Platform includes the following software components:
  1. AWS EKS is used to provision stacks of Elastic Stack+ Platform using the customer's AWS account.
    Google GKE has used provision stacks of Elastic Stack+ Platform using the customer's Google account.
    snapblocs provisions Elastic Stack Platforms following the well-architecture guides (i.e., AWS Well-Architected for AWS, Google Cloud Architecture Framework, etc.) for provisioning and configuring production-grade Kubernetes clusters and deploying workloads into the clusters. It provides benefits from patterns that worked for many customers who have gone to production. Also, snapblocs make it easy to get started and easy to do the right thing. 
  2. Elastic Stack is the acronym for three open source projects: Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. Elasticsearch is a search and analytics engine. Logstash is a server‑side data processing pipeline that ingests data from multiple sources simultaneously, transforms it, and then sends it to a "stash" like Elasticsearch. Kibana lets users visualize data with charts and graphs in Elasticsearch.
  3. Elastic Observability is used to provide observability (monitoring, alerting, APM) for answering questions about what's happening inside the system just by observing the outside of the system.
  4. Grafana is open-source visualization and analytics software. It allows you to query, visualize, and explore your metrics. It also allows you to set an alert for quickly identifying problems in your system moments so that you can minimize disruption to your services.
