Visualize Email Sending Events With Amazon Elasticsearch Service and Kibana

Elasticsearch is an open-source search and analytics engine for use cases such as log analytics and real-time application monitoring. Amazon Elasticsearch Service (Amazon ES) is an AWS service that enables you to deploy, operate, and scale Elasticsearch in the AWS cloud. You can use Amazon ES to analyze your Amazon SES email sending events.

In this tutorial, you publish Amazon SES email sending events to an Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose delivery stream that publishes the event data to Amazon ES.
