Logstash, Beats, Elastic Agent, Open Telemetry — what’s the right choice? (EN)

Back in the old days with the ELK Stack, ingesting logs (and other data) was straight forward: Logstash or maybe Fluend. Today you have a lot more options: Beats have been around for a long time, but Elastic Agent is the hot new thing. And then there is also Open Telemetry that’s growing in use-cases. What’s the right choice? This talk gives a quick overview of the current options and their tradeoffs including some common scenarios and how one or more of the tools can solve your problems.
