A growing number of log management solutions available on the market today are offered as cloud-only services. Although cloud logging has its benefits, many organizations have requirements that can only be fulfilled with self-hosted/on-premises log management systems. Self-hosting allows organizations to retain full control over their data, reduce their dependency on outside services, and keep operations within their private cloud servers and on-premise data centers. Despite the demand for on-premise solutions, very few options exist today.
In this white paper, we will explore the challenges that organizations face when evaluating on-premises log management solutions such as Splunk Enterprise and the Elastic Stack. By reading this white paper, you will gain an understanding of the challenges presented by each of these solutions to determine the best logging solution for your organization.
