To integrate Amazon Streams and Amazon EBS with your monitoring system, reach out to MetricFire. Book a demo with the MetricFire team to discuss integrating Amazon Streams and Amazon EBS and how that can support your monitoring system.
Amazon Kinesis Data Streams (KDS) is a data streaming service that is both scalable and durable and operates in real-time. It can capture gigabytes of data-per-second from hundreds of thousands of sources, including websites, databases, social media feeds, IT logs, financial transactions, and location-tracking events. Real-time analytics tools such as dashboards, anomaly detection, and dynamic pricing are updated in milliseconds.
KDS is based around a producer/consumer model. A producer loads data records into Amazon KDS. A consumer then processes the data records from the stream. For example, a producer could load web server log data to a Kinesis data stream, where a consumer can process and analyze the log data.
You can use Kinesis Data Streams to collect log and event data from servers, desktops, and mobile devices. You can then build Kinesis Applications to process your data continuously, generate metrics, populate dashboards, and aggregate data into stores such as Amazon S3.
You can create Kinesis Applications that run real-time analytics on high-frequency event data events. For example, you could write an application to analyze sensor data collected by Kinesis Data Streams to gain insights into your sensor data.
If you collect gaming data, Kinesis Data Streams can collect data about player-game interactions and feed the data back into your gaming platform. This strategy can help you design a game that provides engaging and dynamic experiences based on players' past actions and behaviors.
With Metricfire, you can turbocharge your data stream monitoring services. By integrating Amazon CloudWatch with the Metricfire platform, you can display your KDS 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 data streams are doing something they shouldn't.
Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) is a block-storage service designed for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). It is designed to scale for and support both throughput and transaction-intensive workloads. Amazon EBS is used to deploy a wide range of workloads, including relational and non-relational databases, enterprise applications, big data analytics engines, file systems, containerized applications, and media workflows.
Amazon EBS the perfect block-storage service for mission-critical systems and can easily scale to petabytes of data.
EBS volumes behave like raw, unformatted block devices that you can mount as devices. You can install a file system on top of your EBS volumes or use them in any way you would use any other block device. You can use EBS volumes as the primary storage for file systems, databases, or any applications requiring access to raw, unformatted, block-level storage. It's also useful for database-style applications that rely on random reads and writes.
Amazon EBS is a great tool for testing, allowing you to duplicate and test your development or production environments. Plus, you can copy Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) or EBS Snapshots to run applications in different AWS regions, allowing you to backup data across geographies and help you reduce data loss, and increase data recovery times.
Amazon Elastic Block Store sends data points to Amazon CloudWatch, including volume metrics and fast snapshot restore metrics, which is where a MetricFire integration comes to the fore.

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 either Prometheus- or Graphite-as-a-Service and have your metrics displayed on aesthetically-pleasing Grafana dashboards.
MetricFire offers its users a complete ecosystem of end-to-end infrastructure monitoring, which is made up of three of the most popular open-source monitoring software services: Prometheus, 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, we also do application monitoring and business intelligence.
Through this hosted environment, MetricFire works to boost the unique features of the open source projects to give you more functionality than the original products. Below are some of the MetricFire features at a glance:
Cloud and on Premise Monitoring
Whether to use Prometheus or Graphite is a great question. We’ve looked deeper into this decision in our blog article, Prometheus or Graphite. While Prometheus is a newer software that has a multidimensional data structure, Graphite is robust and sufficient. 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.
The benefits of MetricFire are:
