Distributed Logging and Monitoring at Volkswagen using the Elastic Stack

To be an independent cloud provider and enforce additional security guidelines, Volkswagen developed their internal central logging and monitoring solution. The solution is based on Microservices implemented in Java as a log endpoint, Kafka for the processing pipeline, Elasticsearch for log storage and Kibana for visualization. In this talk we’ll explain the rationale around the decision to build our own service, the architecture and describe our experiences with the platform.
