|7. About CloudThat
CloudTrail Lake is a full-featured, self-contained, managed feature, independent of a traditional AWS CloudTrail service that collects CloudTrail activity logs, processes them in immutable, secure, long-term storage, and allows SQL queries to be executed on them. The journey started back in 2013 when AWS launched CloudTrail. Right now, AWS provides CloudTrail free of cost for 90 days, where you can see all your API activity for audit and security purposes. But if you want to store CloudTrail activity logs for more than 90 days, users must move them to the S3 bucket, and from there, you can do log analysis.
AWS CloudTrail Lake allows you to
Earlier users having CloudTrail service had to use third-party applications to analyze CloudTrail activity logs stored in the S3 bucket. In many cases, there was a need to build data analysis solutions for efficient analysis of CloudTrail logs. But now, with the help of CloudTrail Lake, a consolidated solution for log analysis and log management is achieved.
Let’s set up CloudTrail lake with a few simple steps
From our discussion on CloudTrail Lake, we can conclude that it simplified the CloudTrail implementation since it integrates collection, storage, processing, and optimization for analysis and query in one product. As a result, CloudTrail data can be queried and analyzed without implementing your data pipeline.
