Last month we launched Elasticsearch and Kibana 5.0 as an early access option for new clusters on ObjectRocket for Elasticsearch. Since then, we've been continuing to improve the experience and are now ready to remove the early access label and declare Elasticsearch 5.0 general availability on the ObjectRocket platform.
From day one at ObjectRocket, our mission has been to provide databases close to your application, no matter where it lives. Moving data is never fun, so we're always looking for ways to keep the service snappy regardless of which cloud our users use for their app tier, whether it's Rackspace, AWS, or any other cloud. However, another part of our mission is to provide high performance with our dedicated hardware architecture. That's where we hit a particular challenge... How do we keep our databases close to customers with applications in AWS, while being able to manage and maintain our own gear? The answer is AWS Direct Connect.
The Elasticsearch community has reached a huge milestone with the release of Elastic Stack 5.0. We're ready to join the party and are now offering Elasticsearch and Kibana 5.0 as an Early Access option for new builds on the ObjectRocket platform. What this means for you is speed, new features, and peace of mind in knowing that you only need to remember one version number from now on, all on the dedicated and fully managed ObjectRocket hosting platform.
You've asked, and now it's here... Encryption at rest is now available as an option on ObjectRocket for Elasticsearch with Kibana. As of today, encrypted instances can be created in the ObjectRocket control panel and existing instances can also be converted to encrypted instances with our always-free migration services.
As of version 3.2 MongoDB supports partial Indexes. A partial index only indexes the documents that meet a specified filter expression, before 3.2 the closest index type to partial was the sparse index. A sparse index only indexes documents where the index field(s) is not equal to null. The sparse index is a great tool to create smaller and higher performing indexes. Partial indexes bring more flexibility to the equation.
The Twitter Connector is a fully managed real-time data feed which allows you to quickly begin indexing Tweets into your ObjectRocket Elastisearch instance with just a few easy steps. The Twitter Connector also adds a pre-defined Kibana dashboard for immediately seeing the results.
At ObjectRocket we believe you should have the ability to choose both the Redis version and the size of instance as per your current requirements, and then upgrade or scale when your needs change or Redis evolves. In a nutshell, we want you to be able to take advantage of the latest and greatest features of Redis when they are available at the scale you need.
