As its infrastructure evolved, WePay’s previous logging solution struggled to keep up with these objectives. It was prone to failures, needed manual intervention, and prevented WePay engineers from focusing on adding value to the business. In addition, logging, metrics and trace data was distributed across different vendor solutions.
“We needed to consolidate our monitoring and compliance tools to streamline the log analytics and improve the performance of our infrastructure and applications,” says Kartik Deshpande, Staff Software Engineer, WePay.
WePay researched the market and decided to deploy Elastic Observability as a single solution for all logging across development, stage, pre-production and production environments managing 500TB of data.
Elastic Observability delivers the ability to break down silos and aggregate all telemetry including log data while delivering the choice to control data retention. Cross-cluster search is a key capability that allows the ability to search across multiple clusters enabling data from multiple sources to be visualized and analyzed via built-in Elastic dashboards for up-to-the-minute, comprehensive reporting.
