Migrating Elasticsearch workloads to AWS? We can help.


Elastic is now a certified partner of the AWS ISV Workload Migration Program (WMP), which supports the migration of ISV workloads to AWS with onboarding guidance, migration resources, and AWS infrastructure credits and funding assistance.

Customers work with Elastic Cloud to leave behind the burden of costly-to-operate legacy systems, siloed data, and rigid on-premises data centers. They also recognize the benefits of cloud-based digital transformation and the ability to bring new products and services to market more quickly, allowing them to stay competitive.

Organizations can now access migration guidance to quickly leverage the benefits of a cloud environment.

Streamline migration with a best practices methodology

Once you’ve decided to migrate, the next step is working with an experienced migration partner that can help you along the way. By designating Elastic as a Workload Migration Partner, AWS has certified that our process and methodology to migrate self-managed on-premises Elasticsearch or ELK workloads to Elastic Cloud on AWS minimizes risk and delivers business value to customers.

Our methodology is directly aligned with migration guidance and best practices of AWS, including the Well-Architected Framework and AWS Migration Acceleration Program. What does that mean for you? You’ll get the benefit of both cloud expertise from AWS and search expertise from Elastic—bringing you the best-of-breed technical know-how, best practices, and safety guardrails along your migration journey.
