Mountain View, Calif. and Amsterdam, The Netherlands - 20 May 2015
Elastic, the company behind the popular open source projects Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana with more than 20 million downloads, today introduced Watcher, a new product providing alerting and notification capabilities for Elasticsearch. Watcher will allow companies like Cisco, eBay, Goldman Sachs, Groupon, Netflix, and Yelp that use Elasticsearch for real-time search and analytics to set up alerts and notifications around changes, trends, or thresholds in their data, helping them automate which actions they need to take to drive their businesses forward.
As Elasticsearch has become a platform where data is centralized and used in mission critical systems across many use cases, the ability to automatically alert across constant flowing and ever-changing data has become a core requirement. Watcher provides capabilities to configure custom alerts and notifications called 'Watches' on any data indexed in Elasticsearch, including:
"It's really exciting to release Watcher as it applies to so many use cases across all of our customers," said Shay Banon, Elastic Founder and CTO. "As one of the most requested features to date, Watcher will allow our customers a simple way to proactively leverage their data to drive smarter business actions."
Founded in 2012 by the people behind the Elasticsearch and Apache Lucene open source projects, Elastic provides real-time insights and makes massive amounts of structured and unstructured data usable for developers and enterprises. By focusing on scalability, ease-of-use, and ease-of-integration, Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana power many of the world’s leading mobile, social, consumer and business applications. Since its initial release, the open source stack has achieved more than 25 million cumulative downloads.
Elastic is backed by Benchmark Capital, Index Ventures, and NEA with headquarters in Amsterdam and Mountain View, California, and offices and employees around the world. To learn more, visit www.elastic.co.
