Transform your data into actionable insights

To effectively monitor and gain insights across your distributed systems, you need to have all your observability data in one stack. Break down silos by bringing together application, infrastructure, and user data into a unified solution for end-to-end observability and alerting.

Get the most out of your investment while innovating and solving problems faster

Combine limitless telemetry data collection and search-powered problem resolution in a unified solution for optimal operational and business results.

  • Collect any data, any source

    Converge data silos by ingesting all your telemetry data (metrics, logs, and traces) from any source in an open, extensible, and scalable platform.

  • Speed up problem resolution

    Accelerate problem resolution with automatic anomaly detection powered by machine learning and rich data analytics.

  • Accelerate innovation

    Empower DevOps teams to collaborate and drive increased developer productivity, improved digital experience, and faster time to market.

  • Pay only for resources you use

    Observability works best if you have a holistic picture. Don’t leave a log (or metric or trace) behind. Cut ties with ingest- and agent-based pricing, and scale transparently.

Observability built on a trusted foundation

Elastic Observability and all Elastic solutions are powered by the speed, scale, and flexibility of the Elastic Stack.
