  • Zinc - A lightweight alternative to elasticsearch in Go
    I'm really enjoying playing with Zinc. We've been playing with it in house here with Meer (https://github.com/quadrantsec/meer) and ingesting several gigs of Suricata (https://suricata.io) and Sagan (https://github.com/quadrantsec/sagan) logs. Source: over 2 years ago
