The True Cost
of the
Elastic Stack

Choosing a log management solution is crucial in allowing developers to deliver products faster. It also has big implications on an organization’s bottom line. This infographic demonstrates the expected costs to build, scale, and maintain the Elastic Stack over a three year period. This total cost of ownership analysis assumes a midsize Elastic Stack deployment on AWS, and accounts for moderate growth year-over-year.

Infrastructure Costs

Infrastructure is an all encompassing term, and must include considerations for both capacity and deployment. It's important to remember that you must have enough infrastructure to not only ingest log data in real time, but also index and store it.

Customization Costs

If your company has adopted a DevOps mindset or is taking steps towards improving how your development, operations, and security teams work together, you must choose tools that will reinforce this culture of collaboration.

Operational Costs

The Elastic Stack is not a "set it and forget it" solution. When log volume increases, issues such as slower queries and significantly increased resource usage will begin to emerge. Engineering staff must be available to respond to these issues.

Support Costs

The Elastic Stack offers paid professional support based on a subscription model with virtual, in-person, and official certification training. You're likely to spend an additional $2,000 per employee per year on training alone.

3-Year Deployment

We have seen how the Elastic Stack can grow from a free solution to a $1.7 million solution in just three years.
