Elastic provides a growing platform of open source projects and commercial products designed to search, analyze, and visualize your data, allowing you to get actionable insight in real time. Our products are architected to seamlessly work together as a standalone solution or easily integrate into your existing infrastructure.

At the heart of it all are Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana, three open source projects that, when combined, are known as the ELK stack. Our commercial products, Shield and Marvel, add even more value to our open source solutions, offering a growing list of capabilities, including security and monitoring.

  • Elasticsearch

    Elasticsearch is a distributed, open source search and analytics engine, designed for horizontal scalability, reliability, and easy management. It combines the speed of search with the power of analytics via a sophisticated, developer-friendly query language covering structured, unstructured, and time-series data.

  • Logstash

    Logstash is a flexible, open source data collection, parsing, and enrichment pipeline. With connectors to common infrastructure for easy integration, Logstash is designed to efficiently process a growing list of log, event, and unstructured data sources for distribution into a variety of outputs, including Elasticsearch.

  • Kibana

    Kibana is an open source data visualization platform that allows you to interact with your data through stunning, powerful graphics. From histograms to geomaps, Kibana brings your data to life with visuals that can be combined into custom dashboards that help you share insights from your data far and wide.
