With the ever-increasing popularity of streaming content, the need to enable users to collect, store, capture, and process large amounts of data from their distributed streams is crucial. By using Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, you can capture massive amounts of live video data from millions of sources, and then make them available to consumers in a data-efficient and cost-effective format.
Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose lets you quickly load streaming data into data stores, data lakes, and analytics services. You can use it to capture, transform, and deliver streaming data to a range of Amazon services, including Amazon Redshift, Amazon S3, Amazon Elasticsearch Service. You can also use Kinesis to connect to generic HTTP endpoints and service providers such as New Relic, MongoDB, Datadog, and Splunk.
Firehose is a fully managed service that automatically scales to match your data throughput. You can also use it to compress, transform, and encrypt your data streams. This feature minimizes the amount of storage required for your streaming data and increases security.
Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose integrates with Amazon CloudWatch metrics so you can collect and analyze your data streaming metrics. For example, you could monitor the IncomingBytes and IncomingRecords metrics to track data ingested into Kinesis Data Firehose from your data producers. You can use Kinesis Analytics to analyze and process your data streams using standard SQL. It also comes with pre-built stream processing templates to help you manage your data analytics.
By integrating Amazon CloudWatch with the MetricFire platform, you can display your streaming metrics on aesthetically pleasing dashboards. MetricFire's advanced filtering lets you choose only the data views you want to see and discard the rest. You can also set up simple rules to discard data you no longer need, plus receive alerts via email or Slack when your data streaming is doing something it shouldn't.
Amazon Elastic Load Balancing is a tool that automatically distributes incoming application traffic across multiple targets, including Amazon EC2 instances, containers, virtual appliances, Lambda functions, and IP addresses. Your application traffic can be handled by a single availability zone or across multiple zones.
There are four types of load balancers available with Amazon Elastic Load Balancing:
Amazon Elastic Load Balancing monitors your applications' health and performance in real-time with Amazon CloudWatch metrics, logging, and request tracing. These monitoring tools help you analyze your applications' behavior, uncover issues, and identify performance bottlenecks in your application stack. By using Elastic Load Balancing, you can also ensure compliance with application Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
With Metricfire, you can turbocharge your Amazon Elastic Load Balancing monitoring services. By integrating Amazon CloudWatch with the Metricfire platform, you can display your metrics on aesthetically pleasing dashboards. MetricFire's advanced filtering lets you choose only the data views you want to see and discard the rest. You can also set up simple rules to discard data you no longer keep, plus receive alerts via email or Slack when your load balancing is doing something it shouldn't.
MetricFire is a full-scale platform that offers infrastructure, system, and application monitoring using a suite of open-source monitoring tools. The platform allows you to use Hosted Graphite and Dashboards-as-a-Service to visualise your metrics on aesthetic dashboards.
MetricFire offers its users a complete ecosystem of end-to-end infrastructure monitoring, which is made up of popular open-source monitoring software services: Graphite, and Grafana. As well, plugins for a number of other open-source projects are preconfigured, such as StatsD, collectd, and Kubernetes. You get all these within a hosted environment as a single product. Not only does MetricFire fit well into the infrastructure monitoring use-case, such as network monitoring and server monitoring, but we also do application monitoring and business intelligence.
Through this hosted environment, MetricFire works to boost the unique features of open-source projects to give you more functionality than the original products. Below are some of the MetricFire features at a glance:
The key thing to remember is that Hosted Graphite by MetricFire is more than just Graphite. Our Hosted Graphite product actually adds data dimensionality and better data storage.
