Setup the Snowplow collector

The Snowplow collector receives data from Snowplow trackers and logs that data to S3 for storage and further processing. Setting up a collector is the first step in the Snowplow setup process.

Historically Snowplow has offered three collectors available. However, we have deprecated two of them, and urge all new users to setup and use the fully featured Scala Stream Collector.
