Look inside

You’re an enterprise architect for Padre Inc., which has acquired Tiddler Inc., an insurance analytics startup, for its SaaS platform. Since your company runs its cloud operations on AWS and the startup uses Google Cloud Platform, your task is to manage multi-cloud operations. As part of that effort, you’ll implement centralized logging to simplify log analysis across multiple applications. After exploring centralized logging using the ELK stack, you’ll create a centralized logging instance in Google Cloud Platform and stream the logs from AWS to Google Cloud. To signal the need for corrective actions, you’ll use Kibana to run queries against the log data and create an alert based on log events. When you’re done, you’ll have created a centralized logging flow that improves site reliability.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
