Hello. I need to setup a service showing logs from 10+ domains. I would like to filter the log data by a domain and the data range. It would be nice to setup user accounts (user A can access logs from a domain A', user B can access only the data from a domain B').
My team decided the best option is to use the ELK Stack.
So far, we accomplished the sending logs part. Now we are sending the data to central point (using Beats and Logstash). And this part is working well.
But now, my team claims it's the best option (faster and cheaper) to resign from ElasticSearch and do a custom solution for the log storage and presentation. They would like to send logs from Logstash to the relational DB. And then, they would like to build the presentation layer in React.
I am not a part of the IT team, that's why I ask you. Are they right? Is a custom solution more time and money savvy? Or should they reconsider using ElasticSearch and Kibana?
Thank you in advance for your help!
