Send CF application logs to IBM Cloud Object Store directly

We are using a 3rd party logging and analysis tool to send our Dedicated CF application logs to.  This service is good for short term purposes but has a significant price tag for log term log data storage (which we need - in some cases our industry requires a 7 year storage).  

We would like to see something in the dedicated CF platform which will automatically send the application log data to IBM Cloud Object storage.

    • Customer is planning on using Splunk Cloud
    • They want ALL logs from their Dedicated environments to be sent to Splunk.
    • Splunk will only retain 90 days (number of days is not final but it is a short term) worth of log entries.  It is cost prohibitive to use Splunk for long term retention.
    • They need a cost effective solution for long term retention of logs.  They require long term (many years) retention for regulatory and compliance reasons.
    • They are considering COS for long term retention.
    • They need a way to store ALL logs from their Dedicated environments to a customer provisioned COS.
    • They will access the provisioned COS using the S3 APIs and pull the data into other systems for analytics and other purposes.
    • So they need ALL application logs sent at the same time to Splunk and to COS.
