Solutions › By use case › Replay data from low-cost storage


Save data for a rainy day

Keep all the data you might need someday – affordably – for as long as you need it.
Replay it on demand.

The Challenge

Navigate the data deluge

The majority of observability data needs to be kept “just in case” – meeting compliance requirements, longer-term, unexpected investigations, or understanding different events’ impact on a customer experience. Keeping this “just in case” data can be very expensive, especially if it’s retained in your analytics tools. You need a way to retain more data, for a longer period of time, without blowing out your infrastructure budget.

The Solution

Gain total telemetry control with Cribl

Meeting complex compliance requirements, successful security breach forensics, and business scenario analysis all have something in common: they are easiest if you store as much data as possible for as long as possible. But keeping all data in “hot” or even “warm” storage is expensive, especially storage that backs SIEMs and UEBA tools. Route a full-fidelity copy of raw data to low-cost storage — and then, with a couple keystrokes, retrieve and “replay” it to analytics tools to answer questions you didn’t predict ahead of time. Knowing what data you might need ahead of time is impossible, but using Cribl means you don’t have to have a crystal ball–keep it all and replay it only what you need, when you find out you need it.
