What is IBM Cloud® Databases for Elasticsearch?
IBM Cloud Databases for Elasticsearch combines the flexibility of a full-text search engine with the power of a JSON document database’s indexing. It comes together to create a powerful tool for rich data analysis of large volumes of data, ready-to-power catalogs, autocompletion, log analysis, monitoring, blockchain analysis and more.
