So, what is the ELK Stack? “ELK” is the acronym for three open source projects: Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. Elasticsearch is a search and analytics engine. Logstash is a server side data processing pipeline that ingests data from multiple sources simultaneously, transforms it, and then sends it to a “stash” like Elasticsearch. Kibana lets users visualize data with charts and graphs in Elasticsearch.

The Elastic Stack is the next evolution of the ELK Stack.

Interactive Analytics on Your Hadoop Data
Hadoop shines as a batch processing system, but serving real-time results can be challenging. For truly interactive data discovery, ES-Hadoop lets you index Hadoop data into the Elastic Stack to take full advantage of the speedy Elasticsearch engine and beautiful Kibana visualizations.

With ES-Hadoop, you can easily build dynamic, embedded search applications to serve your Hadoop data or perform deep, low-latency analytics using full-text, geospatial queries and aggregations. From product recommendations to genomic sequencing, ES-Hadoop opens up a new world of broad applications.

Seamlessly Move Data Between Elasticsearch and Hadoop

Live decision making only happens with lightning fast data movement. With dynamic extensions to existing Hadoop APIs, ES-Hadoop lets you easily move data bi-directionally between Elasticsearch and Hadoop while exposing HDFS as a repository for long-term archival. Partition awareness, failure handling, type conversions, and co-location are all done transparently.
Natively Interface with Spark and Friends
ES-Hadoop offers full support for Spark, Spark Streaming, and SparkSQL. Additionally, whether you are using Hive, Pig, Storm, Cascading, or standard MapReduce, ES-Hadoop offers a native interface allowing you to index to and query from Elasticsearch. No matter what you use, the absolute power of Elasticsearch is at your disposal.

Advantages of ELK stack with Hadoop:

  • Proper full text search
  • Custom scoring
  • Geo locations
  • Aggregations
  • Classifiers (significant terms etc)
  • Unified query source for Hadoop analytics
  • Immediate insight on metrics and logs

ELK Stack Support and Implementation Services
24×7 Monitoring, Support, and Hosting for Custom ELK Stack Applications


More and more enterprise search and big data analytics applications today can benefit tremendously from the open source ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana), given its scalability, affordability, and powerful functionalities.
Specific application expertise is often required for custom applications built on the ELK stack. Thus, relying on an experienced partner for ELK stack support and implementation can help free your internal team from maintenance tasks, allowing you to have predictable application cost structure and maximize ROI.
