Elasticsearch, the company behind the popular open-source search and analytics software, and StackSearch, Inc., the Arkansas-based hosted search firm, announced today a partnership to jointly promote and expand the adoption of Elasticsearch within the growing international community of developers with big data search problems.
StackSearch Co-founder and CEO, Mark Brandon, said "This systems integration partnership enables us to further empower our customers and developers to get the most out of their Elasticsearch deployments by offering dedicated instances, professional support, and professional services. We are honored to partner with this forward-thinking company, and we look forward to supporting and promoting Elasticsearch adoption to our customers around the world."
"We are pleased to partner with StackSearch to further expand the Elasticsearch ecosystem," said Steven Schuurman, CEO of Elasticsearch. "By providing a hosted solution, StackSearch is lowering the barrier to entry for Elasticsearch with a professionally managed, hassle-free solution. We look forward to supporting their success as they accelerate the adoption of Elasticsearch."
With hundreds of thousands of downloads every month, Elasticsearch is rapidly becoming one of the world's most popular open-source projects. Global production of data is exploding, and the necessity for retrieving, storing, analyzing, and making searchable all types of structured and unstructured data has promoted fast, filterable, and facetable search to mission critical status for all enterprises.
StackSearch, Inc. was founded in 2012 and is based in Fayetteville, Arkansas. It provides hosted Elasticsearch via a tier of subscriptions on its solid-state-powered, scaled, and managed clusters in the U.S. and in the UK, with Asian clusters slated for Q4. StackSearch's foundational service, qbox.io, accelerates the development of search applications by alleviating the need for developers to install, patch, scale, and manage search infrastructure. A 2012 winner of the Global Accelerator Network program The Ark Challenge, StackSearch is backed by a consortium of investors that includes The Arkansas Economic Development Commission and Governor Mike Beebe's office.
