LOS ALTOS, CA and AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/14 -- Elasticsearch, Inc., the company on a mission to make data useful to businesses by delivering the world's most advanced search and analytics engine, today announced the 2.0 release of its Hadoop connector, Elasticsearch for Apache Hadoop, along with certification on Cloudera Enterprise 5. With Cloudera certification, Elasticsearch is now compatible across all Apache-based Hadoop distributions, including HortonWorks and MapR, helping businesses extract immediate insights regardless of where their hundreds of terabytes or even petabytes of data are stored.
Elasticsearch is the search and analytics engine behind the ELK stack, which also utilizes Logstash, a log management tool, and Kibana's powerful data visualization capabilities to help businesses pull vital information from their data stores. When used in conjunction with Hadoop, organizations no longer need to run a batch process and wait hours to analyze their data -- Elasticsearch for Apache Hadoop can pipe data to Elasticsearch for indexing as it's being generated, making it available for search and analysis in a matter of seconds. Kibana can also be used to explore massive amounts of data in Elasticsearch through easy-to-generate pie charts, bar graphs, scatter plots, histograms, and more.
How Businesses Leverage Elasticsearch and Hadoop
Elasticsearch is becoming the critical piece of pulling data from any environment and getting it into the hands of developers, engineering leads, CTOs, and CIOs who need insight into moving parts of their business at the rate they are happening. Customer examples include:
- Klout, which stores petabytes of its 400 million+ users' data in a Hadoop Distributed File System and connects it to Elasticsearch. Klout query results, used to build targeted marketing campaigns, are delivered in seconds rather than minutes.
- MutualMind, which enables customers like AT&T, Kraft, Nestle, and Starbucks to monitor their brands on social networks. After its Hadoop batches started taking 15+ minutes, MutualMind moved to Elasticsearch to power its real-time analytics, while utilizing Hadoop for statistical analysis.
- An international financial services firm that uses Elasticsearch to analyze its access logs in just minutes instead of having to wait hours to run MapReduce jobs. Because Elasticsearch provided insights so quickly on the firm's large amounts of data, they've been able to increase the window of data they can analyze from one hour to a full week.
Key Features of Elasticsearch for Apache Hadoop
- The ability to read and write data between Hadoop and Elasticsearch: Lets businesses get immediate, actionable insights by writing their data to Elasticsearch for real-time search and analysis. Complex jobs that would normally take minutes or hours to run in Hadoop can be handled quickly in Elasticsearch and read right back to Hadoop.
- Native integration and support for popular Hadoop libraries: Lets users run queries natively on Hadoop through MapReduce, Hive, Pig, or Cascading APIs.
- Snapshot/Restore: Makes it easy to take a snapshot of data within Elasticsearch -- perhaps a year's worth -- and archive it in Hadoop. At any time, the snapshot can be restored back to Elasticsearch for additional analysis.
Supporting Quotes from Cloudera, Elasticsearch, and Klout
Steven Schuurman, co-founder and CEO, Elasticsearch
"Hadoop was created to store and archive data at a massive scale, but businesses need to be able to ask, iterate, and extract actionable insights from this data -- which is what we designed our products for. With today's certification from Cloudera, Elasticsearch now works with all Apache-based Hadoop distributions, and with it, solves the last mile of big data Hadoop deployments by getting big insights, fast."
Tim Stevens, vice president of Business and Corporate Development at Cloudera
"Part of our mission at Cloudera is to support and promote an open architecture and allow customers to leverage their technology investments. Together, Cloudera and Elasticsearch provide businesses with a solution that allows them to get insight out of massive amounts of data."
Felipe Oliveria, director of Engineering, Backend for Klout
"Elasticsearch has a very good integration with Hadoop. It allows us to export a Hive table to an index on Elasticsearch very easily. HBase is a great data store, and it allows random access to the data, which Elasticsearch is perfect for. Elasticsearch fits very nicely into our data pipeline."
Because Elasticsearch works across distributed, diverse environments, engineers can search, extract, clean up and analyze data whether it comes from log events, social media activity, support tickets, website analytics or product interactions. Thousands of businesses worldwide continue to adopt Elasticsearch to store, search and analyze any type of data in real time, including Bloomberg, Comcast, eBay, Facebook, GitHub, Mayo Clinic, McGraw-Hill, Netflix, The New York Times, Target, Verizon, WordPress and Yelp.
Upcoming webinar: Real-time Analytics and Anomaly Detection using Elasticsearch and Apache Hadoop
On Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at 9:00am PT/12:00pm ET, Elasticsearch will host a webinar that goes over the features and benefits of Elasticsearch for Apache Hadoop, including a demonstration of how to use it as a platform to perform search and analytics, such as anomaly detection.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
