Elastic for POD – Build a better Big Data Cloud platform | SYNEXTRA

ELASTIC FOR POD

WHY USE POD FOR HOSTING ELASTIC SOLUTIONS?

Elastic launched their company in 2012 with one vision: to solve world data problems. They have achieved that goal by creating some of the world’s most popular—and open source—big data solutions: Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, Logstash and more.

However, working with big data requires a platform that can handle large amounts of operations in quick succession. It also requires a platform that has ultrafast connectivity between the servers and the array where the database is stored. That’s why POD gives you dedicated nodes and access to an ultrafast, all-flash, NetApp storage array: for guaranteed performance 24/7/365.

HOW POD IS GREAT FOR ELASTIC

Elastic help businesses of all sizes get a handle of the data they possess and convert it into something meaningful and powerful; from twitter streams to stock quotes, WordPress blogs, Apache logs and more. Elastic help connect the dots.

POD also connects the dots; bridging the gap between on-premise and Cloud-based platforms. POD gives you the guaranteed performance and total control of on-premise servers, with the economise-of-scale of Cloud. With Elastic solutions handling large volumes of data, you need a platform that delivers on performance at scale, whilst being flexible enough to only use the hardware and licenses as you use them. POD delivers on these requirements:

Guaranteed performance
With high-powered, dedicated nodes at your disposal, your users can perform data-intensive tasks without ever slowing down.
Ultrafast flash storage
With ultrafast, all-flash NetApp storage attached to your POD, you get a guaranteed 500 IOPS per TB, with the ability to burst up to 5 times over that at no additional cost.
500 IOPS per TB
When usage spikes, POD will burst up to 5x above the guaranteed IOPS to retain the high-definition user experience.
100% Network uptime guarantee
Our core network is built to High Availability (HA) targets. We do that with N+1 on core components and HA firewalls at every site, for complete solution resiliency.

ELASTIC-BASED SOLUTIONS

ELASTICSEARCH FOR POD

ElasticSearch is an open-source, enterprise-grade database management system that’s designed for superfast, incisive searches against large volumes of data. It’s speed comes from its design. Unlike traditional database management systems, ElasticSearch is designed for full-text searches and to perform well against loosely structured data that does not reside within a database. For comparison; queries that would take more than 10 seconds to return results, using a traditional SQL, are completed in under 10 milliseconds with ElasticSearch. On the same hardware.

That’s the power of built-for-purpose solutions, just like POD – which is built bespoke to each business and use-case.

KIBANA FOR POD

ElasticSearch allows you to search, analyse, and store your data. Kibana compliments ElasticSearch. It empowers you to visualise this data and navigate the ‘Elastic Stack.’ It’s also open-source and make visualising and understanding data really simple. The intuitive interface enables you to quickly create, populate and share dynamic dashboards, that simplify large volumes of data into quantifiable and actionable insights. And these dashboards update in real-time as the ElasticSearch queries collect and process new data. Kibana gives you complete transparency over your data, just like POD.

With POD, you have complete control over your VMs, as if they were on-premise. Plus, with SWIFT, you have a single pane-of-glass to manage every node in your POD.
