Elastic, the company behind Elasticsearch and the Elastic Stack, is expanding its partnership with Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, to provide global access to Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch.

The service announced in October 2017, was previously only available in China. With the expanded footprint, customers outside China will now have access to the real-time search, ingestion, analytical capabilities and commercial features of the Elastic Stack within Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch service.

The announcement means that the Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch service will allow customers around the world to have access to both Elastic's open source products, Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats and Logstash, as well as Elastic's proprietary features, such as security, monitoring, alerting, and machine learning to enhance their deployments for their search, logging, security, or analytics use cases.

Since the launch of the partnership last October, there has been a high degree of collaboration between the Elastic and Alibaba Cloud engineering teams to ensure that Alibaba Cloud's customers can deploy the full breadth of Elasticsearch features, both open source and commercial (X-Pack). Users can run the latest version and use the most advanced features of Elastic's products for their mission critical deployments ranging from real-time search, log analysis, and security analytics; support multi-language analyzer plugins; and get the highest level of support from Alibaba Cloud's support and engineering teams whom are supported by Elastic's global team of technical support engineers, including a China-based team. The success of this working relationship has enabled joint customers to adopt the Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch service by organizations of all sizes across China, and now has established a foundation for Alibaba Cloud and Elastic to expand upon the partnership to new markets.
