Found Elasticsearch vs Qbox.io: What are the differences?
Developers describe Found Elasticsearch as "Hosted Elasticsearch". Create your own fully managed and hosted Elasticsearch cluster. You get a dedicated cluster with reserved memory, giving you predictable performance. There are no arbitrary limits on how many indexes or documents you can store. Scale your clusters as and when needed, without any downtime. On the other hand, Qbox.io is detailed as "Dedicated cloud hosting for Elasticsearch on Amazon EC2, Rackspace, and SoftLayer". 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.
Found Elasticsearch and Qbox.io can be primarily classified as "Search as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by Found Elasticsearch are:
- Hosted and managed: You get your own fully hosted and managed Elasticsearch cluster. No need to host and maintain your own costly search infrastructure.
- Reserved Memory and storage: Your clusters get reserved memory and storage. No shared clusters and no arbitrary limits on how many indexes or documents you can store.
- Scalable and flexible: Start small, grow big. You can scale your cluster as and when needed, without any downtime. There are several Elasticsearch versions to choose from, and upgrading is easier than ever.
On the other hand, Qbox.io provides the following key features:
- Global availability
- 24x7 support
- Reserved cloud resources

We use found.no to host our elasticsearch index for ninya.io.
When we were looking for an elasticsearch provider we compared a couple of different services. One thing that we considered as a big advantage over other elasticsearch provider is the simple pricing. Most other elasticsearch provider use document limits whereas found.no uses storage quota which makes more sense to us.
found.no supports all elasticsearch features and has been very reliable for us. They also have an amazing customer support that helped us to resole issues (on our end) quickly when we didn't know how to help ourselves.
Getting started with found.no was a piece of cake. There's everything you need right at your dashboard. They even generate examples for exactly your account which is really helpful to get newcomers started.
For everything else there is great documentation right on there website. I'd also like to recommend their blog that is full of technical articles not necessarily scoped to their service but also elasticsearch in general.
