Elastic said the collaboration will enable easier migration to Elastic Cloud through expanded competencies, as well as simplified onboarding and new joint go-to-market initiatives.
“Through our collaboration, customers can take advantage of simplified data collection from AWS services, and cloud-optimised features that optimise their Enterprise Search, Observability, and Security solutions with Elastic Cloud on AWS," explained Steve Kearns, vice president of Elastic Platform at Elastic.
"Elastic is committed to delivering a proven subscription experience for our Elasticsearch service through the AWS Marketplace, and we look forward to continuing to work with AWS to help organisations get the most value out of their deployment and focus on what is critical to their business.”
In terms of expanded competencies, Elastic has been certified as an AWS ISV Workload Migration Program (WMP) Partner to support the migration of customers to Elastic Cloud on AWS. The firm has also earned multiple new AWS validated technical qualifications.
Elastic said it is also aiming to simplify onboarding to Elastic Cloud on AWS and will focus on offering enhanced integration for account creation and setup – reducing the initial setup time “from hours to minutes".
In fact, the pair have already completed more than 20 integrations to streamline data ingestion into Elastic Cloud on AWS, including integrations with AWS FireLens, Amazon S3 Storage Lens, AWS WAF, and AWS Network Firewall, along with the Elastic serverless forwarder.
Additionally, the two companies have committed to investing in joint go-to-market initiatives, which include a free seven-day trial via the AWS Marketplace.
Stephen Orban, vice president of AWS Marketplace, Partner Engineering, and ISVs at AWS, said the companies’ relationship is “rooted in listening to customers".
“Enabling frictionless migration and operation of Elastic Cloud on AWS and a streamlined subscription experience is just the beginning,” he said. “Through our expanded efforts, we are ensuring our joint customers have easier access to Elastic Cloud on AWS so they can focus on solving their most complex challenges.”
