High Availability Central Logging in AWS

As part of another work project I needed to install some central logging to run in AWS. Simple you may say, create an instance and use Puppet to install ELK server stack on there, or go back to basics and create a rsyslog server. Normally this would be well and good, however I needed to ensure that all parts solution were highly available and fully redundant, this meant that I would have engineer a lot of HA into my ELK or rsyslog servers....
