Have you every spent time dreaming of a fully automated Elasticsearch environment? If so, stay tuned as this post will walk you through some of ObjectRocket's basic API features for our Elasticsearch product. Using the ObjectRocet API will allow you to create instances, users, acls, and more on demand.
A common question we're asked here at ObjectRocket is: "How do you compare to X?". This is a very good question, as you should always look for the best performing option for your business! We're always looking for ways to make our platform better and show what we can do.
Last month we launched Elasticsearch and Kibana 5.0 as an early access option for new clusters on ObjectRocket for Elasticsearch. Since then, we've been continuing to improve the experience and are now ready to remove the early access label and declare Elasticsearch 5.0 general availability on the ObjectRocket platform.
From day one at ObjectRocket, our mission has been to provide databases close to your application, no matter where it lives. Moving data is never fun, so we're always looking for ways to keep the service snappy regardless of which cloud our users use for their app tier, whether it's Rackspace, AWS, or any other cloud. However, another part of our mission is to provide high performance with our dedicated hardware architecture. That's where we hit a particular challenge... How do we keep our databases close to customers with applications in AWS, while being able to manage and maintain our own gear? The answer is AWS Direct Connect.
The Elasticsearch community has reached a huge milestone with the release of Elastic Stack 5.0. We're ready to join the party and are now offering Elasticsearch and Kibana 5.0 as an Early Access option for new builds on the ObjectRocket platform. What this means for you is speed, new features, and peace of mind in knowing that you only need to remember one version number from now on, all on the dedicated and fully managed ObjectRocket hosting platform.
You've asked, and now it's here... Encryption at rest is now available as an option on ObjectRocket for Elasticsearch with Kibana. As of today, encrypted instances can be created in the ObjectRocket control panel and existing instances can also be converted to encrypted instances with our always-free migration services.
As of version 3.2 MongoDB supports partial Indexes. A partial index only indexes the documents that meet a specified filter expression, before 3.2 the closest index type to partial was the sparse index. A sparse index only indexes documents where the index field(s) is not equal to null. The sparse index is a great tool to create smaller and higher performing indexes. Partial indexes bring more flexibility to the equation.
