Hi, fairly new here [just 2 weeks]. We [my agile team mates] are working on setting up a Kubernetes cluster for a development of some sort of a financial application. For that we need to setup various nodes and stuffs like that. We have chosen a cloud hosting provider called Kamatera which has a Kubernetes image for us to use. I went through the documentation of Fluentd and it seems like its use case is restricted only to Google Cloud platforms. I wanted to seek clarification if I can use Fluentd for keeping log of nodes/clusters in Kubernetes hosted in Kamatera. Thank you
Great question - Fluentd is part of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) the same foundation that Kubernetes is a part of and thus has a very strict policy on being vendor neutral and compatible with many different platforms. While examples might include Google Cloud, Fluentd / Fluent Bit are also used with AWS EKS, Azure Kubernetes Service, Oracle Cloud Kubernetes Service, Red Hat OpenShift, and more. I’ve included links below which may be helpful.
