Living Your Stream: Build Your Observability Data Pipeline with Cribl Stream Free

February 1, 2022

Our mission at Cribl is to unlock the value of all your observability and telemetry data, regardless of source or destination. We aim to give you choice and control over your data—because we know data has different value to different stakeholders at different times in the data lifecycle.

Users are just scratching the surface in terms of the ways they are finding value from Cribl Stream. But free customers from nearly every industry consistently find Stream valuable for:

  • Data coordination across assets and cloud environments
  • Fast and efficient delivery of observability service level objectives (SLOs) and
  • Reducing time spent onboarding data to easily and intuitively add new sources and destinations without adding agents and collectors
  • Improving time to insight and access to data across disparate tools and storage environments
  • Enabling IT transformation and innovation; cost control for licensing, infrastructure, and staff analyzing machine data
  • Getting a broader range of data sources into SIEM destinations–and masking and enriching it on the way-–so you’ve got the context you need [without the compliance risk] to effectively correlate, identify and remediate security incidents
  • And, our original use case, improving Splunk performance and reducing Splunk licensing costs

You can check out our full list of supported integrations purpose built to help you get logs, metrics, and traces from any source to your favorite destination.

What Do Customers Tell Us About Stream Free?

“A product like this is LIBERATING! It gives us choices in the future to allow us to un-tie our data and make real decisions on tools in the future.”
-Director of Cloud Engineering, Retail Organization

“Cribl is the only tool that helped us route the Microsoft Office365 logs to Microsoft Azure event hub in a crunch.”
-Director and head Enterprise Monitoring and Logging, Health Insurance Organization

“We were able to realize value with Stream through the sampling and dropping and routing capabilities. We wouldn’t be able to do this easily ourselves, and the outcome was so easy. But I have to say, the sense of security we have from being able to mask sensitive PII and redact contents of sensitive fields have enabled all of us to sleep better at night. The major warm and fuzzy for all of us is the power of masking PII in the product.”
-High Tech organization

“Cribl is so easy to configure–the pieces work together seemingly auto-magically. Cribl solved my problem in a very easy and tidy manner.”
-Security Analyst, Higher Education

“Cribl is a badass workflow engine in between something like Splunk and S3.”
-Application Analyst, Insurance Organization

“With Cribl we were able to optimize 45+ second Splunk searches and now they’re all running <2 seconds.”
-Splunk Architect, Healthcare Organization

You want choice and control over your data AND your Cribl experience, you got it. We are unifying our various free offerings (formerly One and Community) into one offering, simply called Stream Free to get you (and your data) where you (and it) need to go. Our Standard and Enterprise licenses remain the same.

Cribl Stream Free

Cribl Stream Free allows up to 1 terabyte a day (TB/Day). With this entitlement, LogStream Free is a far superior alternative to managing syslog-ng, Logstash, Fluentd, or Splunk’s heavy forwarder. Users can enjoy all our investment in ease of use, user experience, and distributed management to solve a real problem for their enterprises.
