Amazon OpenSearch Service (formerly ElasticSearch)


Update: Amazon ElasticSearch Service has been rebranded as Amazon OpenSearch Service.

OpenSearch is a family of software consisting of a search engine (also named OpenSearch), and OpenSearch Dashboards, a data visualization dashboard for that search engine.

Amazon OpenSearch Service is a managed service that makes it easy to deploy, operate, and scale OpenSearch, a popular open-source search and analytics engine. OpenSearch Service also offers security options, high availability, data durability, and direct access to the OpenSearch API.

The software started in 2021 as a fork of Elasticsearch and Kibana, with development led by Amazon Web Services.
