Managed and Hosted Elasticsearch Service

Instaclustr provides a fully managed and hosted service for open source Elasticsearch—SOC 2 certified and hosted on your cloud platform of choice like Amazon Web Services, Azure, or Google Cloud.

We customize and optimize the configuration of your Elasticsearch cluster (soon OpenSearch) so you can focus on your applications rather than on your data layer.

Managed Elasticsearch Features

Instaclustr’s fully managed and hosted Elasticsearch service comes with 24×7 expert support—making it easy to deploy, secure, manage, operate, and scale your open source Elasticsearch cluster to search, analyze, and visualize your data in real time.

Our service is based on Open Distro for Elasticsearch, providing you with full visibility into the code base when you use Elasticsearch for data logging, search, analytics, and other popular use cases.

Eventually OpenSearch will be a part of Instaclustr’s managed service, taking the place of Open Distro.

We have flexible hosting options so you can run your Elasticsearch cluster in your own cloud provider account or in ours.

Get Elasticsearch fully managed and hosted on all major clouds, in our cloud account or yours.

Our comprehensive management includes deployment, configuration, ongoing maintenance, upgrades, monitoring, and support. All you need to do is use Elasticsearch.

Receive prompt and definitive technical support and advice from our technical operations and support staff in the USA and Australia who are available to you at all times.

Instaclustr has Elasticsearch and Kibana experts and consultants on staff capable of solving any issue.

We offer a 99.99% availability SLA for enterprise Elasticsearch clusters.

Instaclustr’s solutions and processes are independently audited and certified against the Service Organisation Control – Type 2 (SOC 2) standards.

These regular audits assure the security, confidentiality, integrity, privacy, and availability of your data.

We make data security simple by scheduling hourly backups of all your Elasticsearch data.

We collect and monitor hundreds of different metrics from every node we manage, so we can proactively oversee your cluster and you get easy access to the Elasticsearch metrics needed to effectively maintain your application.

The Instaclustr Managed Platform includes a Terraform Provider for our managed services. It provides a flexible set of resources for provisioning and managing Instaclustr based clusters via the use of Terraform.

If you’d like to know more you can read about the Terraform Provider on our blog, or you can dive right into the examples on GitHub.

Easily add a Kibana node to your cluster in our console.

Kibana enables you to visualize Elasticsearch data and navigate the Elastic data. This provides you with the freedom to select the way you want to present the data, including histograms, pie charts, line graphs, etc. Kibana can also help you visualize across a variety of formats including geospatial, graph exploration, and time series.

We’ve helped build an open source Elasticsearch connector for Kafka Connect.

Bundled with our Managed Kafka Connect, it enables you to create event-driven architectures with Elasticsearch.

At Instaclustr you are never locked-in because everything we do is open source. Our Elasticsearch and Kibana are licensed under the Apache 2.0 license.

We support both Run In Your Own Account (RIYOA) and Run In Instaclustr’s Account (RIIA) for our Managed Elasticsearch and Managed Kibana.

On our managed platform, Elasticsearch and Kibana can be provisioned on AWS, GCP, and Azure and is bundled up with a host of additional features ready for enterprise deployment.

Benefits of Fully Managed Elasticsearch

We have built our managed Elasticsearch service with the same customer-oriented focus as our Cassandra and Kafka offerings for the data layer.

Our Managed Elasticsearch offering is SOC 2 certified, ensuring that we meet the highest security standards of the enterprise to protect the data in your cluster.

Our best-in-class SLAs ensure you have reliability at scale. We also provide easy-to-use monitoring and provisioning APIs for your Elasticsearch cluster to integrate with your DevOps and security processes.

With true open source Elasticsearch (soon OpenSearch) from Instaclustr, you are free from vendor lock-in and licensing costs.

Elasticsearch is a highly performant search engine that can perform sophisticated text search and scale, as a cluster, to meet analytics use cases.

Elasticsearch provides high-performance search. Internally, it is built with optimized algorithms and data structures to suit any type of data you choose to store and index in it.

Open Distro for Elasticsearch provides enterprise security features like Authentication, Role-based access controls, LDAP, Kerberos, and encryption between nodes.

With Elasticsearch there is no need for upfront schema definition. Elasticsearch can be treated as a document-oriented database to store, retrieve, and manage document-oriented or semi-structured data.

Built around the Apache Lucene search engine Elasticsearch is capable of indexing newly written data almost instantaneously. Your search and analytics applications can get the latest data in real-time.

Elasticsearch provides the ability to expand your cluster while automatically balancing search and indexing. Search and analyse terabytes of data.

Elasticsearch’s built-in clustering support enables you to scale your application to meet any challenge.

The Open Distro for Elasticsearch is open source under the Apache 2.0 license and developed under an open model.

This gives customers a clear roadmap and access to a community of no lock-in vendors, experts and training materials.

Benefits of Kibana

If you’re exploring the benefits of ELK stack, you’ll need Kibana in addition to Elasticsearch. Kibana provides powerful analytics and visualization capabilities in real time. You can add a Managed Kibana node to your Elasticsearch cluster in our console to get started with ELK stack.

Kibana provides a powerful interface to Elasticsearch enabling you to explore your data with aggregations, filters and graphs.

Create powerful dashboards and visualizations of your data to facilitate observability and analytics.

Kibana provides an interface to manage role based security so different teams can get the most out of your deployment while your data stays secure.

Kibana is open source under the Apache 2.0 license.

This gives customers a clear roadmap and access to a community of no lock-in vendors, experts and training materials.

A Comprehensive Guide to OpenSearch and Elasticsearch Architecture

Both Elasticsearch and OpenSearch are great tools that can be utilized to solve your organization’s search and analytics data needs. Both can handle massive amounts of data, are highly scalable, and can support millisecond response times. Architected to handle node and data center failures, they provide high availability and reliability for your production workload.
