Elasticsearch

Create Intelligent Intranets and Intelligent Search Applications

Use Elasticsearch and BA Insight to create powerful enterprise-wide Cognitive Search solutions.

With Elasticsearch and BA Insight, you can provide a dedicated, cost-effective search service with powerful features as a turn-key solution, with adjustable scale, complete control of tuning, and minimal overhead and maintenance.   We support both on-prem Elasticsearch and Elastic Cloud (Hosted Elasticsearch).

Benefits of Elasticsearch

  • Sophisticated search capabilities: including real-time indexing, geosearch, pattern search, and search on machine data.
  • High Degree of Control: including direct control of relevance ranking, query processing, and indexing.
  • Open Source: provides assurance of future continuity as well as the ability to change or fix any aspect of the search engine as required.
  • Scale-up: no limits on size of documents or number of items indexed; pay as you grow. If you are hitting the limits of SharePoint Online search (such as files over 10 GB or large amounts of data outside of Office 365), you can use Elasticsearch to supplement your existing search and present users with a single unified result set through SmartHub .
  • Fast answers: Elasticsearch is noted for quick response times, and is notably faster than SharePoint search.
  • Managed Service (With Elastic Cloud): results in lower cost and less work – by eliminating the need to deal with servers, software updates, backups, etc.  Elastic Cloud runs on Amazon Web Services and will soon be available on the Google Cloud Platform as well.

About Elasticsearch

Elasticsearch is a distributed, open source search and analytics engine based on Lucene. Elasticsearch's mission is to make massive amounts of data usable for businesses everywhere by delivering the world’s most advanced search and analytics engine. The open source Elastic Stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana) is commercially supported by the company elastic (www.elastic.co).

Use Cases For Elasticsearch

There are many use cases for Elasticsearch. People all around the world from every industry are leveraging the power of Elastic products to do incredible work — from real-time search to log analysis to customizable data visualization.
