Our customers use Elasticsearch because the speed and relevance of search results are critical to meet business needs. But how does Elasticsearch perform to alternative search platforms in the market? Well we ran a series of head-to-head tests to compare Elasticsearch's performance to OpenSearch running in the cloud against key search parameters and the results were astonishing.

Validated by a third party, Elasticsearch outperforms Opensearch across the board while using less resources. Download the brief to get an overview of the findings.
