Amazon Elasticsearch Service makes it easy to deploy, secure, operate, and scale Elasticsearch for log analytics, full text search, application monitoring, and more. Amazon Elasticsearch Service is a fully managed service that delivers Elasticsearch’s easy-to-use APIs and real-time analytics capabilities alongside the availability, scalability, and security that production workloads require. The service offers built-in integrations with Kibana, Logstash, and AWS services including Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), AWS Key Management Service (KMS), Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, AWS Lambda, Amazon Cognito and Amazon CloudWatch so that you can go from raw data to actionable insights quickly and securely.
It’s easy to get started with Amazon Elasticsearch Service. You can set up and configure petabyte-scale Amazon Elasticsearch Service domains in minutes from the AWS Management Console. Amazon Elasticsearch Service provisions all the resources for your domain and launches it. You can securely access the domain from your VPC or from a public endpoint. The service automatically detects and replaces failed Elasticsearch nodes, reducing the overhead associated with self-managed infrastructure and the Elasticsearch software. Amazon Elasticsearch Service allows you to easily scale your cluster to over a petabyte of data via a single API call or a few clicks in the console. With Amazon Elasticsearch Service, you get direct access to the Elasticsearch open-source API so the code and applications you’re already using with your existing Elasticsearch environments work seamlessly.
With Amazon Elasticsearch Service, you only pay for what you use. There is no minimum fee or usage requirement. If you choose Reserved Instances for a one- or three- year term, you can run Amazon Elasticsearch Service at significantly discounted prices.
Easy to Use
You can deploy a production-ready Elasticsearch cluster in minutes using Amazon Elasticsearch Service without having to worry about provisioning infrastructure or installing and maintaining Elasticsearch software. Amazon Elasticsearch Service is a fully managed service that simplifies time-consuming management tasks such as software patching, failure recovery, backups, and monitoring.
Supports Open-Source APIs and Tools
Amazon Elasticsearch Service gives you direct access to the Elasticsearch open-source API so you don’t have to learn new programming skills. Amazon Elasticsearch Service supports Logstash, an open-source data ingestion, transformation, and loading tool; and Kibana, an open-source visualization tool.
Amazon Elasticsearch Service provides multiple levels of security for your domain. It provides network isolation using Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), encryption of data at rest using keys you create and control through AWS Key Management Service (KMS), and authentication and access control using Amazon Cognito and AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies. Amazon Elasticsearch Service routinely applies security patches and keeps your domain up-to-date.
Amazon Elasticsearch Service is designed to be highly available using zone awareness, which replicates data between two Availability Zones in the same region. Amazon Elasticsearch Service monitors the health of your clusters and automatically replaces failed nodes.
Tightly Integrated with Other AWS Services
Amazon Elasticsearch Service offers built-in integrations with other AWS services including Kinesis Data Firehose, AWS IoT, and Amazon CloudWatch Logs for seamless data ingestion; AWS CloudTrail for auditing; Amazon VPC, AWS KMS, Amazon Cognito, and AWS IAM for security; and AWS CloudFormation for cloud orchestration.
Amazon Elasticsearch Service allows you to launch petabyte-scale clusters. The service enables you to monitor your cluster through Amazon CloudWatch metrics and resize your cluster up or down via a single API call or a few clicks in the AWS Management Console. You can configure your cluster to meet your performance requirements by selecting from a range of instance types and storage options including SSD-powered EBS volumes.
