Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I choose Opster instead of a managed service?

Managed services have several benefits and are great for small scale or non-mission critical use cases. However, they only provide support for the infrastructure level of Elasticsearch management and you’re left to handle the application and data layers on your own.

Beyond handling your infrastructure level, Opster’s platform fixes issues in your data layer, optimizes performance and automates operations. Opster covers: data structure, security & backup, incident prevention & resolution, search and index optimization, capacity planning, scaling and more.
