The hidden costs of logging with the "free" Elastic Stack
Looking for open source log management tools? Many opt to self manage through Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana, basically building your own log management service in the process. Before implementing a custom solution like this, it’s important to consider the true costs, time constraints, and limited functionality that come with maintaining and managing your own ELK stack.
Your exact infrastructure requirement depends on things like your daily log volume, its growth and variability, and retention length, and can easily cost hundreds of thousands of dollars over a three-year period for a mid-sized stack.
An ELK stack requires extensive customization before and after deployment, and full-time employees (FTEs) to manage resource usage, queries, stack maintenance, failure response, scaling, upgrades, and other issues.
To manage a newly deployed ELK stack, many companies opt for paid professional support on a subscription basis. Support plans are priced per node, and increase exponentially as your organization scales.
Ongoing virtual and in-person training, in addition to certifications, add to the rising costs of managing an ELK stack. As your log volume increases, so do the number of FTEs requiring this training.
The job of managing the ELK stack starts to creep into the lives of all engineers, as onboarding and education requirements set in, taking time away from critical development time.
