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 Route 53 is a cloud-based domain name system (DNS) web service that you can use to connect user requests to applications running in AWS, such as Amazon S3 buckets and Amazon EC2. Route 53 is highly scalable with high availability and can also be used to route users to infrastructures outside of AWS, such as a web server or a data aggregator like Splunk. It provides businesses and developers a cost-effective and reliable tool to route end users to internet applications by translating domain names into numeric IP addresses.
Route 53 comes with a simple set of APIs that you can use to create and manage DNS records for your domains. Route 53 organizes your DNS records into "hosted zones" that you configure with Route 53's API.
With Amazon Route 53 Traffic, you can manage traffic globally using various routing types, including Geo DNS, Geoproximity, Latency Based Routing and Weighted Round Robin. You can combine these routing types with DNS Failover to enable low-latency, fault-tolerant architectures. Using Amazon Route 53 Traffic Flow's simple visual editor, you can easily manage how you route your end-users to your application's endpoints.
You can use Amazon Route 53 to configure DNS health checks to route traffic to healthy endpoints or independently monitor your application's health and its endpoints. Monitoring DNS health checks is where MetricFire can help you manage your DNS routing using Amazon Route 53.

You can also set up simple rules to discard data you no longer keep, plus receive alerts via email or Slack when your DNS routing 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.
