Search, solve, and succeed with Elastic 8.4


Today, we are pleased to announce the latest iteration of the world’s leading platform for search-powered solutions with the general availability of Elastic 8.4.

Elastic 8.4 introduces a broad set of new capabilities to the Elastic Search Platform and its three built-in solutions — Elastic Enterprise Search, Elastic Observability, and Elastic Security.

What’s new?

Elastic Enterprise Search is the gold standard for implementing powerful, modern search and discovery experiences with Elasticsearch — enabling you to search everything, anywhere.

  • With Elastic 8.4, Elastic Enterprise Search delivers both increasingly flexible data ingestion options (thanks to a new generation of web crawlers and connectors) and includes enhancements to native vector search capabilities. The benefit: you always find exactly what you’re looking for, wherever it lives in the business.

Elastic Observability is the most widely deployed solution for transforming metrics, logs, and traces into actionable IT insights — enabling you to unify observability across your entire digital ecosystem.

  • With Elastic 8.4, Elastic Observability accelerates problem resolution with smarter alert and incident management for AIOps thanks to a new dedicated control plane for alert and incident management and collaboration.

Elastic Security unifies SIEM, endpoint security, and cloud security on a single platform, helping teams prevent, detect, and respond to threats quickly and at cloud scale.

  • With Elastic 8.4, Elastic Security accelerates response with a purpose-built automation interface, powerful new automation actions, and an ever-expanding ecosystem of security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) partnerships.

And, because each of Elastic’s search-powered solutions are built on one stack — the Elastic Stack — when you upgrade to Elastic 8.4, you will enjoy significant reductions of index size for machine generated data, automated explanations of spikes in log rates, and (even) deeper Kibana alerting capabilities for monitoring and management.
