Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose receives logs from services such as Amazon CloudWatch, Amazon API Gateway, AWS Lambda, and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) in one place, and routes them to third-party tools and systems.

● Real-time visibility with Live Tail and dynamic indexing based on easy-to-create filters with Datadog’s Logging without Limits.
● Automatic parsing and enrichment with additional metadata.
