The next evolution of Elastic has landed.

Elastic has released version 5.0 of the Elastic Stack and it is available for your developers to download here. The aim of this major release is to unify all the products in the Elastic Stack, by aligning, testing and releasing them together as one version. This holistic approach of product release ensures a more integrated, better experience for Elastic product users.

The stack is comprised out of core open source Elastic components, featuring Kibana, Elasticsearch, Beats and LogStash. To compliment and enhance the functionality and quality of the open source stack, Elastic has released version 5.0 of X-Pack, which are a compilation of robust features that are built and maintained by Elastic engineers. The X-Pack pricing model is based on  subscription services and provides professional support and services to your Elastic implementation.

    • Elasticsearch: Lightning-fast search, logging and analytics engine that is easily scalable, reliable and easily managed
