Cribl has added a new way to deploy and manage Stream in the cloud with Cribl Stream Cloud Enterprise, giving admins even better options to lower management overhead and improve ease of use. With Stream Cloud Enterprise, the cloud Stream leader node is now fully hybrid capable. This separates the data plane from the control plane and provides top-notch high availability (HA) architecture. This new architecture enables you to securely manage Stream workers on-premises and in the cloud from one easy-to-use console.
Cribl Stream Cloud Enterprise gives you flexible hybrid worker management and leader HA.
Cribl offers 2 options for Strseam Cloud:
Stream Cloud Standard offers a leader and Cribl managed workers only in the Stream Cloud environment. This is a great way to interface with Cloud SaaS options such as Cloudflare or Proofpoint and then ship that data back to your enterprise be it Splunk or Elastic. It does not offer you control over hybrid workers in your on-prem or cloud enterprise. Your span of control is limited to Cribl Stream Cloud-managed workers only.
Stream Cloud Enterprise offers you the features of Standard and includes the ability to manage workers anywhere they can be installed, including your on-prem data centers and cloud properties. You can fully control your data, managing your enterprise data plane from one easy-to-use console. You can also combine workflows across the enterprise, like interfacing with a cloud SaaS platform like Cloudflare. With a few minutes of work, you can quickly route data to your SRE team’s Elastic instance in AWS and then clone the data flow, giving you the ability to send the same data to your enterprise SIEM platform on-premises. Cribl Stream Cloud Enterprise helps you tackle complex use cases fast.
With the release of Stream Cloud Enterprise, Cribl brings hybrid worker management and high-quality HA to Stream Cloud. Enterprises get more options to manage their data plane with the visibility, flexibility, and control they have come to expect from Cribl Stream.
