Los Altos, Calif. and Amsterdam, The Netherlands – January 28, 2014
Elasticsearch, the company making massive amounts of data useful for thousands of organizations worldwide, today announced the Elasticsearch ELK stack, an unparalleled end-to-end data analytics solution. At the same time, the company is introducing its first commercial product, Marvel, which will monitor Elasticsearch deployments in real-time, giving system operators complete transparency into the state of their deployments.
The Elasticsearch ELK stack consists of Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana – three world-class open source projects developed by the engineers of Elasticsearch. The ELK combination has evolved into one of the world's most popular open source stacks to process data.
Thousands of organizations worldwide including Netflix, Yelp, Verizon, Foursquare, GitHub, Associated Press, SoundCloud, Facebook, and McGraw-Hill use Elasticsearch and the ELK stack for an endless variety of business-critical functions. From providing the fastest end-user search experience for various music and video websites to powering the entire backend of mobile apps, the Elasticsearch ELK stack is infinitely versatile.
"With the Elasticsearch ELK stack we have brought together three of the most popular open source products and have created an end-to-end solution," said founder Shay Banon. "Now businesses can get actionable insights instantly without struggling to stitch together solutions from many different vendors. Behind the scenes, it's incredibly complex, but we've done the work to make it simple for our users."
The launch of Marvel comes on the heels of Elasticsearch announcing revenue growth in 2013 of over 400% and reaching six million downloads, at a pace of more than 450,000 downloads per month. Elasticsearch also brought in Jen Grant, formerly with Box, as its first CMO.
"Being real-time is critical in the world of customer support," said David Taylor, Senior Operations Engineer at Desk.com, "It is essential that our users' issues are searchable immediately which is why Elasticsearch is such a critical component of our infrastructure. Marvel gives us a way to monitor our Elasticsearch servers in real time so we can stay in control and our users always have a great experience."
Marvel is Elasticsearch's first commercial product, and picks up every operating metric Elasticsearch exposes through its APIs visualizing them instantly. Put simply, Marvel lets engineers see their Elasticsearch deployments in action, allows instant checkups, and provides historical data in context. Potential systems issues can be spotted and resolved before they become problems, and troubleshooting is faster and easier than ever before.
