Do you know Elastic Stack can grow from a free solution to $1.9 million one in just three years? With LogDNA, the decisions that go into integrating a complete logging solution are already performed for you.

To demonstrate the expected costs to implement, we assume a midsize Elastic Stack deployment on AWS. We will calculate the costs over a three-year period with the requirements: 100 GB/day of log data ingested in the first year, increasing to 500 GB/day in the second year and 1TB/day in the third year.

Now we have seen how the true cost Elastic Stack can grow from a free solution to a $1.9 million solution in just three years. Over time, these expenses will only continue to increase. When you consider the cost of building, hosting, and maintaining such a significant project, the true cost of this “free” software quickly becomes apparent.

Open source solutions like the Elastic Stack leave you with a complex infrastructure, a large demand for engineering resources, and an expensive bill. As a result, commercial solutions such as LogDNA have adapted to provide similar functionality and benefits at a much lower overall TCO.

With LogDNA, the decisions that go into integrating a complete logging solution are already performed for you. Unlike the Elastic Stack, deploying LogDNA to production does not require extensive training or teams of dedicated full-time employees.

With options for on-premise or SaaS deployments, you can begin ingesting, analyzing, and viewing log data
from across your infrastructure in a matter of minutes. The result is accelerated troubleshooting, lower costs, and more time spent focusing on your core business.
