Bonsai Elasticsearch

Elasticsearch, pure and simple. Starting at $0/mo.

Fast, scalable, and reliable search

Your customers are conditioned by sites like Google and Amazon to expect fast, flexible search in your app. Elasticsearch’s popular open-source search engine technology makes it possible, but Bonsai makes it easy.

Instantly deploy secure, scalable and production-ready Elasticsearch clusters on the Bonsai platform. Start with a free cluster for development, CI and review apps. From there, Bonsai scales seamlessly in production launches and up to enterprise-grade workloads.

Choose the industry standard for search

Elasticsearch is a modern, popular open-source search engine built on Apache Lucene, the industry standard open source full-text search library. It pairs Lucene’s sophisticated built-in query parsing and text analysis algorithms with an elegant JSON API.

You’re in good company when you choose Elasticsearch. Companies like GitHub, Facebook, Uber, and Netflix use it extensively for both internally and externally facing projects. With over 100 million downloads and thousands of contributors, it is the world’s most widely used search engine technology.

Access search experts on call

Every minute you’re busy diagnosing search-related issues is another minute you’re not building useful features. Let us help. At One More Cloud, we have been hosting full-text search for thousands of applications and billions of documents since 2009. Our team developed extensive tooling to build and manage search clusters, and continuously monitor hundreds of system metrics and health checks 24/7.

Heroku customers are a priority to our team. When you submit a ticket, a developer with thousands of hours of hands-on experience with Elasticsearch will answer it, often in a matter of minutes.
