The problem is not the database I store stuff in, it's getting stuff to the database in the first place.  The final data store will almost certainly be postgres, I see no reason to use anything else.

I don't want to use any kind of remote syslog as something then has to parse potentially quite a lot of unstructured data and then be idempotent if fed the same log again for some reason.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I shall take a look at each.
