We updated the Elastic Cloud brand to encompass all cloud-based offerings from Elastic. If it’s a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering from us, it now falls under the Elastic Cloud umbrella.
Here’s the difference:
- Elastic Cloud = Hosted Elasticsearch + Kibana
- Elastic Cloud = Elasticsearch Service + Elastic App Search Service + Elastic Site Search Service
The documentation you are currently reading has been updated to refer to the Elasticsearch Service in line with this branding change. To learn more about the different products that fall under the Elastic Cloud umbrella, see Elastic Cloud: Hosted Elasticsearch, Hosted Search.
