Bonsai Elasticsearch

Heroku’s first Elasticsearch offering, from free instances to Private Spaces Starting at $0/mo.

Keep Your Clusters Green

We’ve spent the last several years developing and maintaining a platform that ensures that your cluster is always running as efficiently as possible. We run optimal versions of Elasticsearch for you, and you can take your data with you at any time. We provide top-notch visibility, custom tooling and configurations, and guarantee that if you’re having a problem with your cluster, we’ll be on the hook to help get it green again.

Start Easily, Scale Massively

Click a button, launch a cluster. As your application grows and your needs change, no worries – we’ve got an instance for that. From hobby projects to Private spaces and everything in between, regardless of the type of instance you need, we can help.

We ♥️ The Heroku Workflow

Bonsai on Heroku supports the Heroku workflow – because that’s how we work too. Review apps, Metrics, CLI access, and more. Everything you’d expect from the operational excellence that defines Heroku, you can expect from us as well.

Heroku’s first Elasticsearch integration

We’ve 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. Anyone can run Elasticsearch for you – only Bonsai guarantees to keep you green.

Private spaces for critical use

If you’re deploying your application on Heroku Private Spaces and need a search solution, look no further. We integrate deeply with the Heroku platform and can guarantee your data is secure with us.
