Our comprehensive set of Beats Services include the following services

  • Beats is lightweight

    Beats is lightweight written in go. The best part about beats is the libbeat framework, which allows developers to create customized “beats” for any data they would like to send to Elasticsearch.

  • The Beats comes with a lot of data shippers

    The beats have a lot of shippers, from Filebeat, which is a lightweight shipper for logs and other data, to Metricbeat, which is a lightweight shipper for metric data, to Function Best, a serverless shipper explicitly built for cloud data. Not only this, but using Libbeat, you can also create your beat.

  • Collecting logs from applications that don’t support Syslog

    Beats is a lightweight shipper agent used in the ELK stack to collect logs from applications that do not implement Syslog or forward logs directly to Syslog. There are many ways of collecting records, and the ELK stack is one of them. It is widespread and used by many companies.

  • Works with multiple cloud services

    The Beats flawlessly works with multiple cloud services, including Amazon’s CloudWatch, Google’s Stackdriver, and Azure’s metrics. Multiple Cloud Services makes it easier to write monitoring logic across numerous cloud environments. This way, you can have all your cloud monitoring and logs in one place.
