Anything less than happy with your Elasticsearch deployment? Try Scalyr: better performance, lower cost, zero maintenance, and we will help your transition to Scalyr.

Scalyr ingests logs and events at hundreds of TB/day with zero loss, and make them ready for search within a second. Our search is simple, powerful, and blazing fast: 98% of queries are sub-second. Our event data architecture is optimized to deliver high performance at low cost - we pass the savings to our customers with industry-lowest per-unit pricing.

No more expensive storage, index management, sharding, updating, scaling and capacity planning: we bring it all for you as a reliable, performant, scalable SaaS.

The Scalyr Elasticsearch Connector

Scaling Elasticsearch for analytics workloads can be a problem that has no great solution. We understand that you might have a lot of users trained on Kibana and big investment in searches, dashboards, alerts, and reports. Or you may have custom applications into which you have embedded Elasticsearch for analytics.

That’s OK. The Scalyr Elasticsearch Connector acts as a remote Elasticsearch Cluster receiving Elasticsearch queries and proxying those to Scalyr. And since Scalyr supports ingestion from Kafka, LogStash and other popular log shippers, you can send your data directly to Scalyr using your existing pipeline. We can help make your migration to Scalyr seamless. And with Scalyr comes huge improvements in performance, scalability, and TCO!

The Connector appears to Elasticsearch as a remote cluster available to dispatch queries to Scalyr.

Lower COGS

Time after time in real world implementations, Scalyr lowers cost of goods sold for applications and services built on Elasticsearch -- sometimes by an order of magnitude. Scalyr’s Event Data Cloud is typically the same cost, or less, than the price of the infrastructure for your Elasticsearch cluster, plus includes maintenance, support, instant scaling to peak load, and more.

Better Experience

In head-to-head bake-offs, Scalyr will typically outperform Elasticsearch by 10-50x in ad hoc query performance on event data and real time use cases.

Keep Kibana

If you’ve already invested in LogStash and Kabana, that’s okay. Replace Elasticsearch with Scalyr’s Event Data Cloud and keep the rest. We provide an Elasticsearch connector to make it easy for you to migrate.

API-driven:

Everything in the event data cloud is delivered programmatically through APIs to allow you to build applications, services and dashboards on Scalyr’s event data cloud.
