Bit Ninja

AWS Advanced Technology Partner, Logz.io, an SOC-2 compliant, enterprise-grade, cloud-based log analytics platform that is built on top of the open-source ELK Stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana) and runs completely on Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud), has announced that EU customers can now use the system to comply with EU regulations and receive enhanced data security.

According to European Union regulations, companies must store their data in data centers located in countries where their member organizations have their residency. Logz.io customers can now choose to have their log data stored in the AWS data center in Frankfurt, Germany. Logz.io plans to support three additional cloud regions by the end of the year.

The announcement from Logz.io comes alongside the company’s forthcoming Silver sponsorship of the AWS London Summit on July 7-8 at Booth S7. The event will consist of both the Enterprise Summit on July 6 and the AWS Summit on July 7. AWS estimates that 5,000 people will attend.

aws cloudAWS chose Logz.io to become a partner in April 2016 after the company complied with AWS’ strict integration, scalability, and customer adoption policies. Logz.io services hundreds of AWS customers by helping them to track down operational and security issues that affect their production environments.

AWS Integration

Logz.io’s AWS apps and integration are purposely built for AWS customers and allows users to easily integrate all AWS components including ELB, Cloudtrail, VPC flow logs, S3 Access logs, and RDS.

Through its open ELK Apps collection of pre-configured dashboards, Logz.io provides visualizations and alerts for many use cases including IT operations, compliance and security, and business intelligence — all of which are based on data coming from AWS Cloud components.

Logz.io would simplify log analytics by using predictive analytics and machine-learning algorithms to find and predict critical events in the volumes of information that is now constantly generated in IT environments by servers, applications, and network devices.
