Elastic Enterprise Search Valuable Features

Kiran BM - PeerSpot reviewer

The Spaces feature in Kibana is really useful. I can ingest all data and then offer multi-tenancy on a single stack to various departments (internal) or customers (external). This feature isn't available in AWS Elasticsearch, and Machine Learning isn't available either.

Other useful features such as Canvas (used to create live infographics) and Lens (used to explore and create visualisations using a drag-and-drop feature) are available only in Elastic's ELK Elasticsearch.

In the last 18 months Elastic has really caught up and also gone way beyond AWS by putting together all the missing components that make ELK Elasticsearch the most comprehensive stack in the entire Big Data ecosystem. Comprehensive because one stack addresses all of the three essential technical components of an end-to-end system: collect, store and visualise terabytes (and even petabytes) of structured or semi-structured data at ease.

The most valuable feature is the out of the box Kibana. You plug it in and start the basic analysis on the data out of the box. This also gives a quick way to check the data and the models to figure out what fits the needs.

The most valuable aspect of the solution is the visualization with Kibana. What we have not yet started, yet, we plan to do, is to use machine learning.

The initial setup is very easy for small environments.

There is very little maintenance needed.

The solution is stable.

The scalability is good.

The solution offers good value for the price.

The most valuable features of Elastic Enterprise Search are it's cloud-ready and we do a lot of infrastructure as code. By using ELK, we're able to deploy the solution as part of our ISC deployment. 

The extensibility and configurability of the solution are great. Having the ability to mine for anything is useful. It's extensible and useful in terms of digesting any type of information. Since we do a lot of consulting, it means we are able to apply it to diverse environments without having to suffer the overhead of integration.

We consider all of the features to be valuable. With respect to 12B Kibana, all of the components fit in very well. Logsearch gives us certain log filtering capabilities and we can vet what we push into our database. This allows us only to log and ship limited items. Essentially, Logsearch plays a big role although not the most important one.

The flexibility and the support for diverse languages that it provides for searching the database are most valuable. We can use different languages to query the database.

A positive feature of ELK is that it directly interacts with Elasticsearch. The UI is very nice, and performance wise it's quite good too. A key feature is that this is a reasonably priced monitoring solution.

The most valuable feature of Elastic Enterprise Search is the Discovery option for the visualization of logs on a GPU instead of on the server.

I like how it allows us to connect to Kafka and get this data in a document format very easily. Elasticsearch is very fast when you do text-based searches of documents. That area is very good, and the search is very good.

Elasticsearch includes a graphical user interface (GUI) called Kibana. The GUI features are extremely beneficial to us.

Their anomaly detection engine is really good for example, compared to SolarWinds. You can ingest different pipelines. You have dashboards, it is visual, there are maps, you can create canvases. It's more visual than anything that I've ever used.
