Amazon OpenSearch Service securely unlocks real-time search, monitoring, and analysis of business and operational data for use cases like application monitoring, log analytics, observability, and website search. Amazon OpenSearch Service is a managed service that uses machine learning to detect anomalies early so you can identify a problem’s root cause. Amazon OpenSearch Service provides integrations with other AWS services and a choice of open source engines, including OpenSearch and ALv2 Elasticsearch. Scaling a solution with expanding data sizes—while controlling cost—provides near real-time results. To help visualize results and share data stories, the service includes OpenSearch Dashboards and Kibana (7.10 and earlier).
