Machine data holds hidden secrets that deliver true insights about the operational health of your AWS infrastructure. This machine data can be overwhelming, but with the right analytics solution, a prescriptive approach, and a little bit of curiosity you can reduce your management overhead and make your cloud infrastructure efficient and secure. When migrating to, or operating an AWS infrastructure, operational visibility of the service that's running your business is critical. Every AWS service you use, resource you create and object you store generates machine data somewhere. To manage and monitor an AWS cloud environment efficiently and to fully maximize investments, it’s essential to uncover the insights hidden away.
