Get startededit

To use Elastic Observability, you need Elasticsearch for storing and searching your data, and Kibana for visualizing and managing it.

Set up on Cloudedit

There’s no faster way to get started than with our hosted Elasticsearch Service on Elastic Cloud:

  1. Get a free trial.
  2. Log into Elastic Cloud.
  3. Click Create deployment.
  4. Give your deployment a name.
  5. Click Create deployment and download the password for the elastic user.

That’s it! Now that you are up and running, it’s time to get some data into Kibana. Kibana will open as soon as your deployment is ready.

Self manageedit

Alternatively, you can install and self manage Elasticsearch, Kibana, and APM server. First see the Elastic Support Matrix for information about supported operating systems and product compatibility. We recommend you use the same version of Elasticsearch, Kibana, and APM Server.
