The Elastic Stack — that's Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana, and Beats — are open source projects that help you take data from any source, any format and search, analyze, and visualize it in real time. Products like Shield (security), Watcher (alerting), and Marvel (monitoring) extend what's possible with the Stack. And you can deploy it all as a service or on premise using Elastic Cloud.

Make sure to check out the grand developments on the horizon for version 5.0.

  • Elasticsearch

    Elasticsearch is a distributed, open source search and analytics engine, designed for horizontal scalability, reliability, and easy management.
