Elastic released Elastic Cloud Enterprise (ECE) version 2.0.

ECE was designed to provide a centralized and easy way to provision, manage, monitor and scale multiple Elastic Stack deployments, giving organizations the ability to control all their deployments from a single place. ECE 2.0 elevates the control and administrative ease with many new features such as host tagging, customizable deployment templates including hot-warm architecture, automated index curation, and more.

"For Elastic customers who choose to adopt the Elastic Stack for new cases and larger deployments, ECE makes the complexity of managing multiple Elastic Stack environments simple," said Shay Banon, co-founder and CEO at Elastic. "ECE 2.0 introduces new features that will give our customers greater control and more scale as they utilize our technology to address newer and more advanced use cases.”

As an example, consider an Elastic customer starting with a single cluster servicing a single use case, such as centralized logging, and growing that use case over time. As the initial logging use case grows to multiple teams or divisions, ECE enables the customer to establish a centralized “logging as a service” for their entire organization. In addition, if the customer chooses to expand into new use cases like application or site search, APM, metrics, business analytics, and security analytics, ECE provides the foundation to manage all deployments, including multiple tenants, use cases, data sources and services with a single product aligned with the customer’s IT, security, backup, and compliance policies and procedures. ECE provides an Elastic Stack focused orchestration platform that lets the customer manage and control their entire fleet of deployments from a single place - via a simple user interface (UI) or a comprehensive application programming interface (API).

Some of the new features and benefits of ECE 2.0 include:

- Deployment Control and Optimization - New host tagging and tag filtering features help users control how deployments are mapped to their underlying hardware to optimize for both performance and cost

- Templated Architectures and Provisioning - ECE has new instance configuration and deployment templates for common architecture patterns to streamline and control how new clusters are structured and provisioned

- Hot-Warm Deployment Templates - ECE’s hot-warm deployment template and automated index curation make it easy to deploy and scale hot-warm clusters, a common topology for time-series use cases like logging and metrics

- Anomaly Detection and Forecasting - ECE now comes with new dedicated machine learning nodes to let users easily add anomaly detection and forecasting capabilities to their Elasticsearch clusters

- SAML Security Authentication - Users have the option to secure Elasticsearch clusters launched via ECE with SAML authentication using their own preferred SAML identity provider
