Question of the Week

[42:06] What’s the deal with the Elks? (Bonus: Whatever happened to Elasticsearch v.3 and 4?)

The Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana (ELK) Stack became standard in conversations about log aggregation, but it didn’t describe all that we do, esepcially as Elastic adds Beats and APM and SIEM… So we talk about The Elastic Stack to encompass everything. Bonus: Version synchronicity eases woes of compatibility and conversation, but it means we had to skip some numbers to true up.
