Elastic Launches Elasticsearch Service on AWS in London Region
We’re Excited to Bring the Official Elasticsearch Service Closer to Our Customers in the United Kingdom and Across Europe, the Middle East and Africa
Elastic N.V., the company behind Elasticsearch and the Elastic Stack, is excited to bring the official Elasticsearch Service to the London region on AWS.
“When procuring new or existing services, UK Public Sector organisations are encouraged to initially consider Software as a Service models, particularly for their enterprise IT and back-office functions. This approach is mandatory for central government and strongly recommended to the wider public sector.”
This will provide our growing set of customers in the United Kingdom and across Europe, the Middle East and Africa with the immediate ability to start a free trial and deploy our Elasticsearch Service on AWS in London with a few clicks, with features you can’t find anywhere else. The EU West 2 (London) region on AWS is Elastic’s 10th global AWS region for Elasticsearch Service, complementing the nine other regions supported globally on AWS and an additional four regions on GCP, two of which Belgium and Frankfurt are in Europe. Now you can create Elastic Stack deployments inside the United Kingdom, all at the click of a button.
“We see growing interest from companies to use our Elasticsearch Service across the UK public sector, but also in technology, media, retail, finance, and healthcare,” said Samantha Wessels, Vice President, Sales, EMEA at Elastic. “The cloud is becoming an important deployment vehicle for our users and customers deploying the Elastic Stack. In addition to the requirements for data locality, we’re seeing customers move to our Elasticsearch Service for features like our deployment templates, machine learning, and having technical support from the creators of Elasticsearch.”
All the features you love, now closer to you and your users
The Elasticsearch Service on Elastic Cloud is the only official hosted and managed Elasticsearch and Kibana service, created and supported by Elastic. With the Elasticsearch Service, you can spin up a fully loaded deployment in the AWS London region, activating powerful features such as security, monitoring, APM and machine learning (among others) that are only available from Elastic. Experience refreshingly headache-free, zero-downtime upgrades to the latest versions of our software. For minor version upgrades, it’s just a click of a button and you’ve upgraded to the latest security patches and bugfixes. Zero-downtime upgrades are possible across major versions as well, starting at 6.8+, using rolling upgrades.
“At Voxpopme, the Elasticsearch Service on Elastic Cloud is a critical component of our real-time video analytics products for market research and customer experience,” said Andy Barraclough, CTO at Voxpopme. “Latency matters to our customers and our brand. As we are a global tech company, the addition of another local AWS region helps to continue to reduce latency even further, which is great news for our customers.”
