Amazon OpenSearch Service is a fully managed service that makes it easy to deploy, operate, and scale OpenSearch (now supporting Apache Lucene 9) clusters securely and cost-effectively in the AWS Cloud. Amazon OpenSearch Service offers direct access to the Elasticsearch and OpenSearch APIs, which makes your existing code and applications using Elasticsearch work seamlessly with the service.

This fully-managed service provisions all of the resources for your OpenSearch cluster and launches it in any region of your choice within minutes. It automatically detects and replaces failed OpenSearch nodes, which reduces the overhead associated with self-managed infrastructures. You can scale your cluster horizontally or vertically--up to 3 PB of data--with zero downtime through a single API call or a few clicks on the AWS Management Console. With this flexibility, OpenSearch Service can support any workload from single-node development clusters to production-scale, multi-node clusters.

OpenSearch Service also provides a robust set of visualization tools and capabilities with support for OpenSearch Dashboards and Kibana (for Elasticsearch versions up to 7.10), without any additional fees. (OpenSearch Dashboards and Amazon Managed Grafana are both forks of Kibana).

This fully-managed solution includes features like fine-grained access control, alerting, index state management, and SQL support—among others. The OpenSearch Service feature set originates from the needs of customers such as yourself and through open-source community initiatives such as OpenSearch.

You need to factor several considerations into your decision to move to a managed service, including out-of-the-box capabilities for operational stability, security, and performance of your search and analytics infrastructure.

Support for multiple workloads, including search, log analytics, distributed trace analytics and observability, security intelligence and event monitoring (SIEM), and more

  • Storage tiering with UltraWarm
  • Fully-compliant OpenSearch at no extra charge
  • Large-scale OpenSearch operational expertise
  • Built in plugins that provide fine-grained access, vector-based similarity algorithms, or alerting and monitoring with the ability to automate incident response
