Amazon OpenSearch Service is not Elasticsearch

The Amazon OpenSearch Service (formerly Amazon Elasticsearch Service) is not Elasticsearch and is not a partnership with Elastic, the company behind Elasticsearch. Amazon’s OpenSearch Service is based on an older, forked version of Elasticsearch and offers a fraction of the functionality, choice, and support available directly from Elastic.

Choose the Elasticsearch service, the official offering from Elastic. It delivers Elasticsearch, Kibana, and the complete Elastic experience, within AWS. Rest easy knowing that Elastic’s search expertise is backing your deployments with security updates, solutions, and support.

Search-powered solutions

Adopt ready-to-use solutions for your search, observability, and security needs.

  • Elastic Enterprise Search

    Elastic Enterprise Search

    Build applications using flexible tools, robust APIs, and the trusted power of Elasticsearch. Use pre-built search solutions for enterprise needs like workplace search, application search, and customer support.

  • Elastic Observability

    Elastic Observability

    Apply search and visualization to logs, metrics, APM traces, and uptime statistics for unified end-to-end visibility into your technology ecosystem.

  • Elastic Security

    Elastic Security

    Address your security needs for SIEM, SOAR, threat intelligence, XDR, endpoint security, and cloud security, so your analysts can use the power of search and visualization to prevent, detect, and respond to threats.

Savings, deployment flexibility, and search innovations

Deployment, subscription, and purchasing options, so you get what you want.

  • Cost effective storage options with data tiers

    Elastic gives you the ability to classify and store your data in a way that delivers a balance between performance and cost savings. Save money with data tiers and searchable snapshots.

    Leverage hot, warm, and cold, and frozen data tiers, and searchable snapshots to search for data inside Elasticsearch, as well as data residing in cloud-based object storage.

  • A unified search experience across locations

    Unify search experiences with capabilities like cross-cluster search and cross-cluster replication. Both of these capabilities allow federated search and analytics across clusters, cloud providers, and regions, while retaining parts of the data on-premises, or in a specific preferred cloud provider, or region.

  • Flexible and open ML capabilities

    Use the Elastic Search Platform to natively run ML-powered models (like running Google’s BERT model for natural language processing), and as an environment to import and run custom models (like models published on Hugging Face). Easily experiment with purpose-built or third-party ML models, as you incorporate AI/ML powered capabilities into your data analytics use cases.

  • Commercially supported self-managed offering

    Elastic gives you the flexibility to create and run deployments where and how you need them to meet your business objectives — whether public cloud, private cloud, multi-cloud, hybrid, or on-premises.

    Elastic gives you the flexibility to purchase and manage your own search implementation, which is useful for use cases with specific regulatory and data residency requirements.

  • Tiered subscription levels

    Get access to the features you want, and the level of technical support that meets the needs of your business. Easily switch between Standard, Gold, Platinum, and Enterprise subscription levels without having to contact sales.

  • Flexible purchasing options

    Purchase from us, or through your preferred cloud marketplace (AWS, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure). Marketplace purchases benefit from any discounts you may have negotiated with your cloud provider, and usage accrues toward your cloud spending commitment.
