Elastic has been a pioneer in open source — until it closed sourced Elasticsearch and Kibana. Compare Elastic’s cloud service to Logz.io’s open source SaaS platform.
As Elastic closed-sourced Elasticsearch and Kibana, Logz.io partnered with AWS and other open source leaders to fork these projects, which are called OpenSearch and Opensearch Dashboards. They’ll be under the Apache-2 license forever.
“I believe that working together on providing Elasticsearch and Kibana open-sourced, under Apache 2, is the right thing to do for our customers. It is the right thing to do for anyone who relies on these open source projects.”
Elasticsearch and Kibana were designed for logs - not metrics or traces. That's why Logz.io provides the best monitoring tools — Elasticsearch/Kibana (soon to be OpenSearch) for logs, Prometheus for metrics, and Jaeger for traces — together on a scalable SaaS platform.
Here is a comparison of what Elastic vs Logz.io handles for you when setting up and operating your monitoring stack.
