Managed Elasticsearch

A fast, scalable, resilient and highly flexible distributed search and analytics engine on AWS

Real-Time Search and Analytics Made Possible

Instaclustr’s fully managed Elasticsearch comes with 24/7 expert support – making it easy to deploy, secure, manage, operate and scale a cluster to search, analyze and visualize your data. Our service is based on the Open Distro for Elasticsearch.

The Most Popular Open Source Search Engine

Elasticsearch is the world’s most popular open source search and analytics engine. It provides a scalable search solution and can be used extensively to search all kinds of documents and datasets. Elasticsearch uses the Apache Lucene Standard Analyzer for indexing, automatic-type guessing and high precision searches.

Our Expertise

We have built our managed Elasticsearch service with the same robust clustering principles as our other products. We even migrated our own internal Elassandra cluster (central logging solution) to Elasticsearch and are running it 24/7 to analyse logs from thousands of servers. Our team of Elasticsearch experts use the same operational discipline we have developed through our deep experience with Cassandra and Kafka.


Solution Details

The Advantages of Instaclustr Managed Elasticsearch

Critical Application Level Support and SLAs

Leveraging our deep experience running and supporting Apache Cassandra – the database used for many enterprises’ most demanding applications. We have extended the high quality, fast response support and SLAs we provide with Cassandra to our managed Elasticsearch service.

Run in Your Cloud Provider Account or Ours

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

Open Source (Apache Licensed) Elasticsearch

With over 60 million node hours and more than 6 petabytes of distributed data technology under management, we provide the most reliable way to provision Elasticsearch in the cloud.

SOC 2 Certification

Instaclustr Managed Elasticsearch SOC 2 certified, ensuring that your data integrity is always protected and meets the highest possible industry standards.

Daily Backup

We schedule off node backups of all data on a regular basis and these are available for restoration in the event of a significant disaster in your cluster.

Instaclustr Monitoring and Provisioning API Support

Instaclustr Managed Elasticsearch provides easy-to-use monitoring and provisioning APIs to integrate with your DevOps tools and processes. We collect and monitor over 1000 different metrics from every node we manage. By doing so, we know exactly what the availability and performance of your cluster is at any time.

Managed Kibana

Kibana enables you to visualize Elasticsearch data and navigate the Elastic data. This provides you 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.

Integrated with Open Source Solutions and Part of the Instaclustr Managed Platform

Instaclustr delivers reliability at scale through our managed data platform of open source technologies including Apache Cassandra®, Apache Kafka®, Apache Spark™ and Elasticsearch. This makes it easy to deploy and manage the most advanced open source data-related technologies. We combine the right infrastructure and cloud provider integrations, advanced security and a highly experienced support team.


You can create a classical ELK stack, with Logstash, on our offering but the flexibility of open source means you can swap in Fluentd or Graphana if they better suit your needs.

Elasticsearch Features

An Easy to Deploy, Open Source Distributed RESTful Search and Analytics Engine

Elasticsearch is distributed, which means that indices can be divided into shards and each shard can have zero or more replicas. The distributed nature of this enterprise search solution enables it to process large volumes of data in parallel, quickly finding the best matches for your queries.


A document-oriented database is designed to store, retrieve, and manage document-oriented or semi-structured data. This means there is no need for upfront schema definition.

Near Real-Time Search

Elasticsearch is capable of indexing newly written data almost instantly. This means your applications can get the latest data in a near real-time manner. This capability is helpful for use cases such as application monitoring and anomaly detection.

Horizontally Scaling

Elasticsearch provides the ability to expand your cluster while automatically balancing search and indexing

Built-in Clustering Support

Elasticsearch has built-in clustering support, which essentially means that within a single cluster you can run Elasticsearch across many servers and still perform an effective search.

High Performance

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.

Elasticsearch Use Case

Elasticsearch  Use Case

Elasticsearch makes it easy for developers to add powerful search functionality to their applications. It is most commonly used for:

  • Log analytics – Elasticsearch enables you to analyze unstructured or semi structured logs generated by websites, servers, sensor etc.
  • Full text search – With Elasticsearch you can provide personalized search experience to your applications users.
  • Security analytics – Elasticsearch lets you centralize and analyze events from throughout your enterprise to enhance incident response and monitor threats across all applications and system in real time.  
  • Click stream analytics- Understand the real-time content delivered to your users, as well as data interpretation and generated reports related to different areas of interest important to your business.


How Elasticsearch Works

Elasticsearch provides REST APIs making it easy to integrate with any development technology. This means that, no matter what application stack you have, as long as it can make REST API calls, it can easily integrate with Elasticsearch. The open-source community has built Elasticsearch clients for Java, Python, PHP, JavaScript, Node.js, Ruby, and many more, which you can leverage to speed up development.
