Need a simple logging solution and want to give our Elastic Cloud a try? Or perhaps you want to start with Elasticsearch and Kibana to search and visualize your data, and add machine learning when you’re ready? With our deployments running the Elastic Stack, you can. The same goes for deploying a hot-warm architecture with automatic index curation for more complex logging use cases and many other deployments. We know that use cases come in all shapes and sizes. The purpose of Elastic Cloud is to work for yours.

To get started:

  • Sign Up for a Trial - Sign up, see what your free trial includes and when we require a credit card.
  • Create Your Deployment - Get up and running with the Elastic Stack in just a few clicks. Your deployment pre-configures Elasticsearch, Kibana, and other products of the Elastic Stack for you. Everything works together, everything runs on hardware that is optimized for your use case.
  • Connect to Your Deployment - Index your data into Elasticsearch and start visualizing with Kibana, our open-source visualization tool.
  • Next Steps - Enable more features, such as monitoring, sending data from Beats and Logstash, and more.
