If you google “DevOps tools,” you’ll see a dizzying litany of software applications, all promising to simplify your life as a DevOps engineer. This can be an intimidating experience — not only because there are so many DevOps solutions available that it can be difficult to know which ones are the best for your needs, but also because the idea of having to learn and “carry around” so many tools is itself unnerving.

One of the unintended side-effects of the public cloud is the enablement of a platform-agnostic cloud architecture. This means that it’s now easier than ever to mix offerings from multiple vendors (cloud vendors in this case) to form a single application or service-based solution.

Your software stack likely consists of web servers, search engines, queues, databases, etc. Each part of your stack emits its own metrics and logs. Depending on the size of your team and structure, different team members might have permissions to look at one set of data, but not the other. Some data is needed for troubleshooting and can be discarded after just a few days, while more important data might need to be kept for months for legal or capacity planning purposes.
