Want to use a domain? No problem, you’ll learn how to create an alias in your DNS and then add the domain to Cloud Foundry.

Our third release of the day is Elastic Stack Essentials with Myles Young that will introduce you to the various services that make up the Elastic Stack. Once you’re familiar with the roles and important terms of each service, you’ll get to see the Elastic Stack in action as we use it to collect, ship, process, store, and visual web server access logs to gain insights about the log data and ask it ad-hoc questions.

Once you’ve seen what it can do, you can try it out yourself with a live environment where you can setup the stack and aggregate some logs of your own!
