Elasticsearch Now Available on Microsoft Azure Marketplace
Elastic announced that its stack—including Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana—is now available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.Elastic, the company behind the popular Elasticsearch open source project and a hosted and managed Elasticsearch offering, has announced that the Elastic stack is now available on Microsoft Azure Marketplace. Elastic's addition to the Azure Marketplace means developers can use preconfigured templates to more easily and quickly deploy an Elasticsearch cluster on Azure. The company's Bring-Your-Own-License (BYOL) model gives users the option to add commercial enhancements like cluster and data security, cluster management, alerting, and automation through an Elastic subscription. This subscription also provides enterprise-class support for Elastic offerings on Azure. "We now have Elasticsearch, one of the most popular tools for real-time search, logging, and analytics, in the growing ecosystem of applications easily deployed through the Azure Marketplace," said Steve Guggenheimer, corporate vice president of Developer Experience & Evangelism at Microsoft. "With this relationship, our mutual customers will benefit from our open source development that optimizes Elasticsearch for Microsoft Azure shared storage." Elasticsearch is a search server based on Apache Lucene. It provides a distributed, multitenant-capable full-text search engine with a HTTP Web interface and schema-free JSON documents.
"We've had a wonderful relationship with Microsoft over the years, and Elasticsearch on the Azure Marketplace is just another step forward," said Shay Banon, Elastic's founder and CTO, in a statement. "With tighter integration, our customers will be able to more easily deploy Elasticsearch and our other products on Microsoft Azure at any scale across their mission critical applications."
