What is Elasticsearch?

Elasticsearch is a distributed, RESTful search and analytics engine capable of storing data and searching it in near real time. Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats and Logstash are the Elastic Stack (sometimes called the ELK Stack).

What is Amazon CloudSearch?

Amazon CloudSearch enables you to search large collections of data such as web pages, document files, forum posts, or product information. With a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, you can create a search domain, upload the data you want to make searchable to Amazon CloudSearch, and the search service automatically provisions the required technology resources and deploys a highly tuned search index.

What is Qbox.io?

Qbox is supported, dedicated, hosted Elasticsearch - the bleeding edge of full-text search and analytics. We provide an intuitive interface to provision, secure, and monitor ES clusters in Amazon EC2 and Rackspace datacenters everywhere.
