Elasticsearch has generated a lot of interest over the past year and a half with its open-source search solution that's purpose-built for big data.
In what it's dubbed the "most advanced search and analytics engine" on the plant, Elasticsearch's platform is designed to quickly help users search through massive amounts of data, "scrub" that data clean, and then visualize that data through a number of analytics tools.
Elasticsearch says it's seeing massive growth in the market. In June, when the company closed a $70 million funding round, Elasticsearch said the adoption of its three core products -- Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana -- has grown three-fold, climbing to more than 8 million total downloads.
