Centralized logging for kubernetes with fluentd and elasticsearch

I had to setup a centralized monitoring for our production and staging applications. In my company, we saw a need to have an alternative solution (introduction of pricing, etc.) to the google stackdrive logger in place.

Having some bad experience with running Logstash, I decided to go with EFK (elasticsearch, fluentd, and kibana). Plus. I could reuse the existing fluentd deployment definition in the kubernetes github repo, so it was easy to get something running in short time.
