We know you don’t have the time or patience for the long version. Here’s the short (TL:DR) version:
Running Elasticsearch can be extremely difficult. Companies don’t want to master the technology and prefer to focus on their core business. That’s why they often turn to managed services.
Managed services assist with: Elasticsearch orchestration, deploying clusters, scaling resources, configuring security, provisioning and more. In addition, they expand upon open source/code Elasticsearch with specific features that are often irrelevant to most use cases. Essentially, they provide you with great tools and support services for managing the infrastructure layer of Elasticsearch, but only that layer.
Everything beyond infrastructure, AKA everything related to your data layer, is not covered by managed services. This means that taking care of ingesting data, configuring and maintaining your data structure, optimizing shards, avoiding latency, preventing incidents and improving performance must all be handled independently.
Opster’s products and support services cover both the infrastructure layer and the data layer of managing Elasticsearch, with a focus on the data layer that users have always been left alone to handle.
