  • Multi-tenant aware Using the auth proxy to ensure Application Developers have access only to their own logs.
  • Ubiquitous Query Language Log Store uses PromQL-style label selector query for filtering logs.

Log Store offers multi-node deployments, data replication, and load balancing in a highly-available configuration.
