Elastic on Azure

Use the Elastic Stack (Elastic, Logstash, and Kibana) from the creators to search, analyze, and visualize in real time.

Search, analyze, monitor, and secure your apps and IT on Azure

Elastic is, at its heart, a search tool, but it has been expanding beyond website, application, and enterprise search to other use cases requiring speed, scale, and relevance. Petabyte scale and real time matters for application performance management (APM), log and metrics management, security analytics, and security endpoint protection.

Frequently asked questions about Elastic on Azure

  • By running Elastic Stack on Azure, you can take data from any source reliably and securely, in any format, then search, analyze, and visualize it in real time. Elastic can deliver sub-second response times when working at tera and petabyte scale on Azure.

    With deployment models to meet your unique use case, you can quickly and easily gain speed, scale, and relevance. You benefit from frictionless integration that delivers faster time to market.

  • Open-source users must self-manage Elastic software and licensing. They have no access to Elasticsearch Service managed service features, or services like consultative tech support, training, and consulting services.

    With Elastic Cloud (Elasticsearch managed service), you can use your Azure commitment to get the most out of your data and technology. Elastic covers the maintenance and upkeep so you can focus on innovation.

  • Developer teams looking to embed search for apps and websites, logging, metrics, APM, uptime, infrastructure alerting, machine learning, rich BI and security analytics into their custom developed applications.

    Operations teams that must hit the SLA and require an observable system. These teams often manage both applications and infrastructure, whether on or off the cloud.

    Security teams monitoring for threats, gathering evidence on an interactive timeline, pinning and annotating relevant events, and forwarding potential incidents for further action.

    Business analysts looking for insights with KPIs, metrics, and goals in one place with the Elastic Stack. Create and share reports with real-time data.

    • Search: You can ingest and transform data, deploy site crawlers, embed search in applications, and connect data silos for enterprise search.
    • Create observable systems by unifying logs, metrics, APM events, and traces. Our users threat hunt and respond with SIEM and endpoint security.
    • Create location enabled applications that understand GeoJSON.
  • Of course. Create an Azure free account to learn how Azure works, try products and cloud services, and view tutorials on how to deploy your first solution in 10 minutes or less. Get started.
  • Elastic Cloud delivers powerful solutions for observability, enterprise search, and security with the added benefit of reduced operational complexity. With real-time updates, default security best practices, and maintenance handled by the creators of Elasticsearch this offering delivers more time to develop, analyze, and provide business value. Elastic Cloud typically had fewer configuration steps, shorter deployment requirements, and is eligible for Azure spend commitment.

    If you're looking for the Elastic products you know and love with manual options for cluster management, self-managed Elastic Stack may be right for you.
