Founded in 2012, Elastic offered an open-source search engine, Elasticsearch, which was based on Apache Lucene. Today its offering includes the Elastic Stack (Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash) and Elastic Cloud (Elasticsearch Service, App Search Service, Site Search Service) which are widely used in search, logging, metrics, security, and analytics use cases. Elastic succeeded in optimizing the search experience with different product combinations guiding users to analyze and index structured and unstructured data. To date, Elastic has had their products downloaded over 350 million times, has developed a community of more than 100,000 meetup members in over 100 countries, and has more than 5,500 subscription customers. Considering Taiwan’s burgeoning market potential, and its geographical location in Southeast Asia, Elastic decided to collaborate with CloudMile, a Cloud service provider specializing in AI, in its aim to expand into the Asian-Pacific market with customized services. Built on an open source foundation, the Elastic Stack lets customers reliably and securely take data from any source, in any format, and search, analyze, and visualize it in real time.
