Elastic, the company behind Elasticsearch, and the Elastic Stack, announced a new partnership with Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, to deliver a joint hosted Elasticsearch offering on Alibaba Cloud for the China market.

The new service , Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch, will allow Alibaba Cloud customers to deploy Elastic’s powerful real-time search, ingestion, and analytical features as a hosted and turnkey solution.

"As a leading global cloud provider, Alibaba Cloud always aims to offer our customers access to the most advanced products on our platform to give them a competitive edge and to spur innovation," said Yeming Wang, Deputy GM, Alibaba Cloud Global. "Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch will be a highly differentiated service as it uses Elastic's advanced search product and powerful X-Pack features across every tier of our service in a way that is easy to get started, consume, and manage."

Available immediately, Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch can be accessed as a simple add-on to cloud computing services used by a customer.

This new product will give developers a turnkey, hosted experience for embedding Elasticsearch's real-time search capabilities into their new and legacy applications, ingesting data into Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch using Logstash or Beats, visualizing the real-time and historical data in Kibana dashboards, and automatically comes with Elastic's X-Pack features, such as security, alerting, monitoring, reporting, Graph analytics, and machine learning. Alibaba Cloud and Elastic will also work together on technical enablement, keeping the Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch service up-to-date with the latest features, as well as making logging and other services available in the future.

"China is a growing market for us, and over the past few years, we've seen the Elasticsearch community organically expand to more than 5,000 developers," said Shay Banon, Elastic Founder and CEO. "By partnering with China's largest cloud provider, Alibaba Cloud, we will be able to jointly accelerate the pace of innovation for China's massive developer ecosystem to build, host, and manage their applications with Elasticsearch's real-time capabilities and our powerful X-Pack features like security, alerting, and machine learning."

Chief among these is the notion that user experience management (UEM) is purely a subset of application performance management (APM).

Risk is relative. The Peltzman Effect describes how humans change behavior when risk factors are reduced. They often act more recklessly and drive risk right back up. The phenomenon is recognized by many economists, its effects have been studied in the field of medicine, and I'd argue it is at the root of an interesting trend in IT — namely the increasing cost of downtime despite our more reliable virtualized environments ...
