Logs, Clouds and Open Source, Oh My!

Open source could be a key in bringing log management to the clouds

Why can't I have logs with my Amazon Cloud? So asked Misha Govshteyn, CTO of Alert Logic on Secure Cloud Review in response to an article on logs and clouds by Andreas M. Antonopolous in Network World. Why can't Misha have logs with his Amazon?

I have assembled an all star cast of log experts to discuss this issue.   The answer may be that you will soon and it may be open standards, open APIs and open source that will make it possible.

So listen in as Andreas M Antonopolous, SVP and co-founder of Nemertes Research, Misha Govshteyn, CTO and co-founder of Alert Logic, Raffael Marty, co-founder of Loggly, a Log as a Service provider and Dr. Anton Chuvakin, Security Warrior and former CTO of Log Logic join me to discuss logs in a cloudy world. Enjoy!

Note, this was recorded as one of my Security.Exe podcasts, but because the conversation turned to open source in the clouds, I thought you might find it interesting. It is a long conversation running about 40 minutes, but very informative I think.
