Cribl Stream for AWS PrivateLink

Private connectivity to Cribl Stream from other AWS accounts and VPCs

This Partner Solution deploys Cribl Stream for Amazon Web Services (AWS) PrivateLink to the AWS Cloud. It's for users that want a Cribl Stream deployment accessible from other AWS accounts and virtual private clouds (VPCs) through a PrivateLink VPC endpoint.

Cribl Stream is a vendor-neutral observability pipeline to route and enrich your machine data. Stream organizes your data and can route it to one or more supported destinations for storage and analytics. For example, it can write a full-fidelity retention copy of your data to object storage like Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and replay the data. Or, if the data is security-related, Stream can map it against a threat list before routing it to an analytics tool. For more information, refer to

This Partner Solution was developed by Cribl in collaboration with AWS. Cribl is an AWS Partner.

  •  What you'll build
  • This Partner Solution sets up the following:

    • A highly available architecture that spans two Availability Zones in your VPC.
    • An Application Load Balancer to route user web traffic to Cribl Stream instances.
    • A PrivateLink VPC endpoint for private access to the Partner Solution VPC from other AWS accounts.
    • A Network Load Balancer to route traffic from the PrivateLink VPC endpoint to Cribl Stream worker nodes in the public subnets.
    • In the public subnets, a Cribl Stream leader node and two worker nodes in Auto Scaling groups. Each node is deployed to an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance.*
    • AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) for a role and policy for the Cribl Stream instances.

    * By default, to give users a better experience when getting started with Cribl Stream, this Partner Solution deploys in a public subnet. If you're deploying this Partner Solution to a production environment, consider using a private subnet.
