Searching for better ways to manage Elasticsearch

CoreView has been using Elasticsearch for several years. Though they engaged with Elastic support to maintain their deployments, they grew frustrated with the “break-fix” mindset.

“Whenever we had an issue, we had to turn to Elastic’s support team and wait a really long time for them to respond,” said Alessandro Lombardi, Senior System Architect at CoreView. “When they did answer, they didn’t always know how to solve the problem.”

The CoreView team was experiencing several challenges with their Elasticsearch deployment, including slow searches, slow indexing and more. They began looking for better solutions to manage their operations.

“We found Opster’s free tools and decided to give it a go,” said Lombardi. “We uploaded a JSON of our infrastructure and were so impressed with the insights we got. We knew it was time to contact the Opster team to learn more. Opster was our first choice for managing Elasticsearch once we started experiencing issues in our system.”

Together the teams optimized performance, improved configurations, increased resource utilization for the correct scale and set up all needed notifications and automations. 

“Our new reality is that we don’t discover issues once they’re already issues,” said Lombardi. “We use AutoOps to check our metrics and we actually get pinged proactively by the Opster team, who simply take care of everything.”

“The Opster team is just incredible,” Lombardi continued. “They always give us more value than we think we’ll get. If it’s a new feature we need, an analysis of our system’s performance which helps us track our progress, or just answering questions so we can make sure we understand what’s going on.”

Thanks to Opster’s products and support, the CoreView team has complete peace of mind with Elasticsearch. “Honestly, the best part is the response time. Whenever we need something form the Opster team, we just write to them on Microsoft Teams and they answer us within a few minutes,” said Lombardi. “They are always available, always ready to help.”
