          I use Kibana because it ships with the ELK stack. I don't find it as powerful as Splunk however it is light years above grepping through log files. We previously used Grafana but found it to be annoying to maintain a separate tool outside of the ELK stack. We were able to get everything we needed from Kibana.

              Our whole DevOps stack consists of the following tools:

              • GitHub (incl. GitHub Pages/Markdown for Documentation, GettingStarted and HowTo's) for collaborative review and code management tool
              • Respectively Git as revision control system
              • SourceTree as Git GUI
              • Visual Studio Code as IDE
              • CircleCI for continuous integration (automatize development process)
              • Prettier / TSLint / ESLint as code linter
              • SonarQube as quality gate
              • Docker as container management (incl. Docker Compose for multi-container application management)
              • VirtualBox for operating system simulation tests
              • Kubernetes as cluster management for docker containers
              • Heroku for deploying in test environments
              • nginx as web server (preferably used as facade server in production environment)
              • SSLMate (using OpenSSL) for certificate management
              • Amazon EC2 (incl. Amazon S3) for deploying in stage (production-like) and production environments
              • PostgreSQL as preferred database system
              • Redis as preferred in-memory database/store (great for caching)

              The main reason we have chosen Kubernetes over Docker Swarm is related to the following artifacts:

              • Key features: Easy and flexible installation, Clear dashboard, Great scaling operations, Monitoring is an integral part, Great load balancing concepts, Monitors the condition and ensures compensation in the event of failure.
              • Applications: An application can be deployed using a combination of pods, deployments, and services (or micro-services).
              • Functionality: Kubernetes as a complex installation and setup process, but it not as limited as Docker Swarm.
              • Monitoring: It supports multiple versions of logging and monitoring when the services are deployed within the cluster (Elasticsearch/Kibana (ELK), Heapster/Grafana, Sysdig cloud integration).
              • Scalability: All-in-one framework for distributed systems.
              • Other Benefits: Kubernetes is backed by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), huge community among container orchestration tools, it is an open source and modular tool that works with any OS.
