Why we believe diversity, equity, and inclusion is good for Cribl and our customers

Cribl was born of an age where diversity and inclusion were top of mind for our founders from the beginning. From the onboarding of our first employees, we wanted diversity, equity, and inclusion to be one of the essential values in our culture. We believe that this helps drive innovation, and that’s ultimately good for our customers. This aligns with our core value of customers first, always.

LogStream: Automated Upgrades for Distributed Deployments

On distributed LogStream deployments that can span hundreds of nodes, it becomes a critical feature to be able to upgrade all the nodes to the latest version in an automated fashion – without having to upgrade each node one by one, or leverage bash scripts to automate the upgrades. Here, we discuss how we leveraged our internal jobs framework to automate worker node upgrades.

Cribl.Cloud – Observability meets Simplicity

Since the inception of Cribl LogStream, we’ve had a freely accessible product. LogStream has always been available as a download or a Docker container. Since we launched version 2.0, I’ve often said LogStream is the easiest distributed system to setup I’ve ever encountered. Set up a leader node , set up one or more worker nodes, point them at the leader, and you’re good to go. If you’re running Kubernetes, we provide easy-to-use Helm charts for getting up and running quickly.
