Elastic Cloud Enterprise, or ECE, is the same product that powers the Elastic Cloud hosted offering, available for installation on the hardware and in the environment you choose. Elastic Cloud Enterprise can be deployed on public or private clouds or even on bare metal hardware. Because all services are containerized, they support a wide range of configurations.
Elastic Cloud Enterprise might be a preferred choice if your enterprise data cannot be hosted on a public cloud, for example where regulated or sensitive data cannot leave your internal network. Elastic Cloud Enterprise also lets you reuse your existing investment in on-premise infrastructure.
If you need to manage multiple Elastic deployments across teams or geographies, you can leverage Elastic Cloud Enterprise to centralize cluster management for:
- Backup and restore
Centralizing the management of clusters with Elastic Cloud Enterprise enforces uniform versioning, data governance, backup, and user policies. Increased hardware utilization through better management can also reduce total cost.
