A fully managed search service based on OpenSearch, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Search Service with OpenSearch provides industry-leading flexibility for any number of log analytics or application search use cases. The service enables customers to easily ingest, secure, search, aggregate, view, and analyze data. Most importantly, we handle all security, patching, updates, and backups, giving you time to analyze the data and not worry about the service health of the clusters.

Have you heard of OpenSearch?

OpenSearch is community-driven, open source software for a suite of search and analytics use cases, derived from Apache 2.0 licensed Elasticsearch and Kibana v7.10.2. It consists of a search engine, OpenSearch, and a visualization layer, OpenSearch Dashboards. OCI for OpenSearch supports open source APIs, OpenSearch OpenDashboards (formerly Kibana), and is fully FIPS-compliant. 

Key benefits

  • No compute shape constraints: The service uses flex shapes, allowing you to configure exactly the cluster that aligns to your use case.

  • Security, patching, updates, and backups: We immediately patch security vulnerabilities, and you tell us your preferred backup schedule, retention period, update, and upgrade to the latest OS version.

How can you use OCI Search Service with OpenSearch?

We publish reference architectures for OCI Search Service with OpenSearch use cases in the OCI Architecture Center. These reference architectures provide detailed instructions about deployment and configuration for their use cases. Available today is Aggregating Logs using OCI Search Service with OpenSearch. Check in regularly to find other helpful reference architectures.

If you’re managing your own Elasticsearch stack and looking to scale or reduce complexity, let us know using this early access form. We look forward to hearing from you.

OpenSearch is managed by AWS and Oracle will be a contributing member of the community. For more information, go to  to https://opensearch.org.
