Built on an open source foundation, the Elastic Stack lets you reliably and securely take data from any source, in any format, and search, analyze, and visualize it in real time.
- Kibana — Visualize your data. Navigate the Elastic Stack.
Kibana gives shape to your data and is the extensible user interface for configuring and managing all aspects of the Elastic Stack.
- Elasticsearch — Search, analyze, and store your data.
Elasticsearch is a distributed, JSON-based search and analytics engine designed for horizontal scalability, maximum reliability, and easy management.
Ingest any data, from any source, in any format.
- Beats — Beats is a platform for lightweight shippers that send data from edge machines to Logstash and Elasticsearch.
- Logstash — Logstash is a dynamic data collection pipeline with an extensible plugin ecosystem and strong Elasticsearch synergy.
Tailing a log file, knowing which IP addresses to block, or indexing a million documents for real-time search are just a few of the many ways the Elastic Stack can solve problems and add concrete value to your use case.
The coming together of Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash into the Elastic Stack started with a single goal: to be there for our users and make their lives simpler. We’ve made the Elastic Stack easy to use and easy to scale. Move quickly from download to prototype and onto developing full-scale solutions — from a single use case to managing multiple use cases, all from a single console. The addition of Beats makes it simple to ship metrics from a variety of sources and monitor them to discover hidden trends. Ingest data into your indices and visualize it all using Kibana’s default dashboards, or create your own. Can’t find the right plugin out of the box? Easily plug into APIs and third-party solutions to connect all of your resources in a unified location. The Elastic Stack also makes it simple to secure your deployment and add authentication and role-based access to ensure your data is always safe.
The Elastic Stack is highly adaptable to a variety of use cases, including:
- Threat hunting
- Real-time situational awareness
- Search at scale
- IT modernization
- Geospatial analytics
- Data security
