Bad search is bad business.
Search is about finding content, finding documents, and most importantly about finding answers.
Most modern organisations are drowning in information. It is inefficient and unproductive to have staff wasting their time looking for answers or recreating content that already exists. If everyone can find the answers they need — when they need it — it frees them up to be more productive.
Elasticsearch is a distributed, RESTful search and analytics engine capable of solving a growing number of use cases. As the heart of the Elastic Stack, it centrally stores your data so you can discover the expected and uncover the unexpected.
This software-based search solution was designed to scale and excels with high volume data sources.
Benefits of Elasticsearch
Elasticsearch lets you perform and combine many types of searches — structured, unstructured, geo, metric — any way you want. Start simple with one question and see where it takes you.
It’s one thing to find the 10 best documents to match your query. But how do you make sense of, say, a billion log lines? Elasticsearch aggregations let you zoom out to explore trends and patterns in your data.
Features of Elasticsearch
Elasticsearch Is Fast. Really, Really Fast.
When you get answers instantly, your relationship with your data changes. You can afford to iterate and cover more ground.
Run It on Your Laptop, or hundreds of servers.
Go from prototype to production seamlessly. You talk to Elasticsearch running on a single node the same way you would in a 300-node cluster.
It scales horizontally, while automatically managing how indices and queries are distributed across the cluster for smooth operations.
Elasticsearch detects failures to keep your cluster (and your data) safe and available.
Elasticsearch operates in a distributed environment designed from the ground up for perpetual peace of mind.
Numbers, text, geo, structured, unstructured. All data types are welcome.
Application search, security analytics, and logging only scratch the surface of how companies around the world are relying on Elasticsearch to solve a variety of challenges.
Supports single sign-on technologies including LDAP and SAML 2.0.
