Customers using container services including Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Services (EKS), or self-managed Kubernetes can now send their container logs to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) using the Fluent Bit log router. Fluent Bit allows customers to route container logs to various AWS and partner monitoring solutions including Amazon CloudWatch, Amazon Kinesis, Datadog, Splunk, and now Amazon S3.

Amazon ECS customers can use the FireLens interface in their task definition to configure Fluent Bit to send logs to Amazon S3. Once you deploy your task definition, it will automatically start routing logs. Customers using containers on Amazon EKS or self-managed Kubernetes clusters can now route container logs to Amazon S3 by installing Fluent Bit as a DaemonSet.

To get started see a FireLens example to route logs to Amazon S3 here, the Fluent Bit release notes here, and the Fluent Bit documentation here.
