Frequently Asked Questions

Can I try Elastic Cloud for free?

Yes, you can sign up for a 14-day free trial. The trial starts the moment you create a cluster.

During the free trial period, you get access to provision a cluster with 1GB memory, 24GB storage, and high availability (HA) across two zones, at no cost. Your free trial also includes Shield, security for Elasticsearch, which provides basic authentication, encryption, and role-based access control. You also get a chance to explore Watcher (alerting), Marvel (monitoring), reporting, and Graph.

If you have any technical questions, hop on our Elastic Cloud forum and get answers from the experts in the community, including people from Elastic.

If I need to change the size of my Elasticsearch cluster at a later time, what do I do then?

You can scale your clusters both up and down from the user console, whenever you like. The resizing of the cluster is transparently done in the background, without any downtime. Beware, however, that if you scale your cluster down, you must ensure that the downsized cluster can handle your Elasticsearch memory requirements. Read more about sizing and memory in our articles Sizing Elasticsearch and Elasticsearch in Production.

Do you offer support subscriptions?

Yes, Elastic Cloud Gold and Platinum includes a support subscription. In addition to all the features you get with our standard Elastic Cloud offering, you get access to support from the very creators of Elasticsearch and our commercial plugins for security, alerting, and monitoring. For a price quote, please contact us.

Where are Elastic Cloud's Elasticsearch clusters hosted and located?

We host our Elasticsearch clusters on Amazon EC2. We have data centers in these regions: US East (N. Virginia), US West-1 (N. California), US West-2 (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), and South America East (Sao Paulo).

Can I use Elastic Cloud from outside of AWS?

Yes, you can connect to an Elastic Cloud cluster from other cloud providers like GCP, Azure and also from on-premise environments.

What is the difference between Elastic Cloud and the Amazon Elasticsearch Service?

Elastic Cloud is the only hosted and managed Elasticsearch service built, managed, and supported by the company behind Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, and Beats. We work hard to provide you with the latest versions of the software. Our service is built on best practices and years of experience hosting and managing thousands of Elasticsearch clusters in the cloud and on premise. We support custom scripts and dictionaries, and our Elastic Cloud Gold and Platinum customers can upload and run custom plugins with the service. We are the only Elasticsearch as a service offering where you get access to our commercial features and plugins.

Please note that there is no formal partnership between Elastic and Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Elastic does not provide any support on the AWS Elasticsearch Service.

Do you offer Elastic's commercial products?

Yes, all Elastic Cloud customers get access to basic authentication, encryption and role-based access control, in addition to monitoring capability.

Elastic Cloud Gold and Platinum customers get complete access to all the capabilities in Elastic's commercial products available on Elastic Cloud:

  • Shield: Security for Elasticsearch
  • Watcher: Alerting for Elasticsearch
  • Marvel: Monitoring for Elasticsearch
  • Reporting: Export Reports
  • Graph: Analyze Relationships

Contact us to learn more.

As a special gesture to startups and small businesses running Elastic Cloud, Shield, Watcher, Marvel, reporting, and Graph are available at no additional cost to customers running clusters up to 64GB memory. (Please note that the number of clusters and data centers add to the total amount of memory.)

Is my Elastic Cloud cluster protected by Shield?

Yes, Shield provides the protection needed to securely manage your Elastic Cloud cluster. Shield on Elastic Cloud offers basic authentication, encryption, and role-based access control.

Is there a limit on the number of documents or indexes I can have in my cluster?

No. We do not enforce any artificial limit on the number of indexes or documents you can store in your cluster.

That said, there is a limit to how many indexes Elasticsearch can cope with. Every shard of every index is a separate Lucene index, which in turn comprises several files. A process cannot have an unlimited number of open files. Also, every shard has its associated control structures in memory. So, while we will let you make as many indexes as you want, there are limiting factors. Our larger plans provide your processes with more dedicated memory and CPU-shares, so they are capable of handling more indexes. The number of indexes or documents you can fit in a given plan therefore depends on their structure and use.
