Implement sys log server

We are looking into moving event logs from Windows server to syslog.  What component do I need to send logs from Windows server to syslog?

I suggest you look at Splunk as it can act as a syslog.  Splunk has light forwarder that you install on Windows server and it will forward it to a central Splunk server.  Unlike syslog which utilizes UDP, Splunk utilizes TCP which means that in an event of connectivity failure, you will not lose any events that occurred during the outage.  Also note that Splunk does great Windows log management natively.

Kiwi Syslog has the feature "...Log Forwarder for Windows converts Windows Event Logs into syslog messages...".
There's a free version too.

You could use Splunk, SDEE-collector, IEV, CS-MARS, Sawmill, Q1 Labs ..etc
Splunk is excellent. I did splunk for syslog, data correlation and log management, I would also check splunkstorm (splunk in the cloud), As said  will do the job too, see
