Elastic’s Search Upgrades Ruffle Competition

Grafana Labs is known for its open and customizable monitoring and observability platform that has been built around Grafana, the open-source technology for dashboards and visualization. The company has more than 1,000 customers and 650,000 active installations. The plugin will be available for free to the customers of both Grafana Labs and Elastic.

Elastic also recently announced a series of new products and upgrades. It recently released Kibana, a new way for customers to create, manage, and monitor alerts and notifications throughout Elastic Stack and external systems. The Kibana framework provides users with the ability to create notifications that drive awareness and actions. It is integrated with other platforms such as PagerDuty, Jira, ServiceNow, and Microsoft teams to provide customers with the ability to spot, react, and resolve issues.

It released a new web crawler for Elastic App Search that now offers a faster and more powerful way for users to ingest content directly from publicly accessible websites and make that content easily searchable in their App Search engines. The introduction of the web crawler for App Search will help simplify Elastic deployments and enable new use cases for enterprise customers.

Elastic Enterprise Search now offers support for Box as a content source inside Elastic Workplace Search, thus allowing teams to easily access important files. The prebuilt connector also includes document-level permissions to limit user access to sensitive or private content. The addition of Box deepens an already robust portfolio of content sources available in Workplace Search, including Google Drive, Dropbox, Salesforce, Slack, ServiceNow, and Sharepoint.

Other search advancements include the general availability of searchable snapshots and the beta of schema on read with runtime fields to maximize data insights and cost efficiency across its Elastic Enterprise Search, Observability, and Security solutions. Searchable snapshots will allow customers to retain and search data on low-cost object stores such as AWS S3, Microsoft Azure Storage, and Google Cloud Storage to balance storage costs. The beta of runtime fields will allow users to define the schema for their index at query time, create fluid data structures with schema on read, and reduce the time to first insight and optimizing cost.
