Elastic is the world's leading software provider for making structured and unstructured data usable in real time for search, logging, security, and analytics use cases. Built on an open source foundation, the Elastic Stack lets you reliably and securely take data from any source, in any format, and search, analyze, and visualize it in real time.
The Elastic Stack:
- Kibana gives shape to your data and is the extensible user interface for configuring and managing all aspects of the Elastic Stack.
- Elasticsearch is a distributed, JSON-based search and analytics engine designed for horizontal scalability, maximum reliability, and easy management.
- Beats is a platform for lightweight shippers that send data from edge machines to Logstash and Elasticsearch.
- Logstash is a dynamic data collection pipeline with an extensible plugin ecosystem and strong Elasticsearch synergy.
Founded in 2012 by the people behind the Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash open source projects, Elastic's global community has more than 80,000 members across 45 countries. Since its initial release, Elastic's products have achieved more than 100 million cumulative downloads.
