Recently, Microsoft announced the preview release of the Elastic offering on Azure. Elastic provides observability, search, and security tools for users to monitor and understand the health and performance of their applications across their cloud and on-premises environments.

Elastic Search is used in all industries to apply the search and monitoring functionality across VM resources, machine data, and more. Customers use Elastic to retrieve service logs, metrics, and visualize the data in Kibana for better decision making.

Microsoft said that it worked closely with Elastic to offer a seamless experience of their SaaS offering by integrating the deployment, billing, and support of the Elastic solution on the Azure cloud platform. The solution is available through Azure Marketplace.

The solution offers you the ability to use the Elastic SaaS solution from the Azure Control plane. You will be able to provision a new Elastic service and configure your Azure resources to automatically send logs and metrics to Elastic. Now, with an automated log-forwarding process, you can easily configure your resource logs with Elastic via the resources Diagnostic Settings in the Azure portal. Also, customers get the ability to manage the Elastic agent on Azure VM extensions to configure logs and metrics emitted from their VM hosts.

Erll, Azure customers can find the service listed on Azure Marketplace and go through the different plans offered and purchase it directly with single billing enabled. With a few clicks, users can deploy Elastic service in their desired subscription and datacenter regions with a preferred plan.
