Before deploying, consider using our new offering, Databases for Elasticsearch. Elasticsearch combines the power of a full text search engine with the indexing strengths of a JSON document database to create a powerful tool for rich data analysis on large volumes of data. Pricing is based on underlying disk usage. CPU & I/O resources scale with the underlying disk usage. IBM Compose for Elasticsearch makes Elasticsearch even better by managing it for you. Features include auto-scaling deployments, high availability, and automated no-stop backups.
