Easy replacement for ELK
We have saved a significant amount of money each month compared to hosting our own ELK stack. CHAOSSEARCH has been much more stable than hosting ELK.
It is very quick to get setup, using data already in S3 you can have log insights in a few clicks.
We found a few edge cases where fields were counted differently than in ELK. These were very minor bugs and were fixed really quick, nothing to really complain about.
Most Impactful Data Decision We've Made
Their customer support and account management is fantastic. The team is very welcoming and ready to help with anything that comes up.
CHAOSSEARCH has completely changed the way that we look at data within our organization. Previously we were trying to pull insights from disparate data sources and attempting to share those insights with members on our team - it wasn't working. CHAOSSEARCH brought sanity and organization to our data pipelines while also being cost effective.
Any time I hear about a company struggling with data analysis or looking for a new solution I enthusiastically endorse CHAOSSEARCH - I couldn't be happier.
Honestly, can't really think of much. I have been incredibly pleased with CHAOSSEARCH and grateful to be a customer.
A great way to run ELK for way less $$$
Overall, we are solving a real-time security response use case with ChaosSearch and have been able to fully replace our internal ELK stack while maintaining the same feature set and cutting cost by ~40%. While the overall performance of the product may be a bit slower than raw elasticsearch, it's hard to beat the low cost and maintenance of the product
ChaosSearch was very easy to hit the ground running with, and the support and engineering teams were (and still are) very responsive to all of our needs and questions
The overall reliability and uptime of the product has greatly improved since we started using it, but will always be something our team has a close eye on since our use case for ChaosSearch is security-related
