That's a wrap! Looking back on the Elastic and AWS collaboration in 2023


What a fantastic week at Amazon Web Services (AWS) re:Invent 2023! As a Diamond sponsor, we thoroughly enjoyed supporting our partner AWS at this flagship event and conversing with so many individuals from around the world who are interested in Elastic®.

On the heels of the event and with the holiday season upon us, we thought now would be a great time to share a blog post covering our highlights at AWS re:Invent and our extensive collaboration with AWS over the past year.

Elastic at AWS re:Invent 2023

How do you capture the energy of such a monumental event? Well, we can at least share a few of our favorite moments!

Announcing Strategic Collaboration Agreement and SaaS Quick Launch

Let’s start off with two important announcements:

Sponsoring AWS Jam Challenge on generative AI

Our sponsored AWS Jam Challenge on generative AI was packed with nearly 300 developers. Attendees got hands-on with Elasticsearch® as part of the gamification and gained some new skills in the following areas:

  • How to use a retrieval augmented generation (RAG) application running on Amazon EC2 Streamlit
  • Integrating AWS SageMaker hosting an open source LLM from Hugging Face with private data stored in Elastic Cloud

It was a blast and the winners walked away with some cool Elastic prizes.

Presenting innovations at breakout sessions

We held two Breakout Sessions covering pioneering technologies.

  • Elastic Distinguished Architect Michael Heldebrant alongside Fahd Siddiqui, director of Engineering at Adobe, and Ayan Ray, senior partner solutions architect at AWS, presented on semantic search and RAG. Watch the recording to see what they shared.
