Program Overview

AWS OpenSearch is a scalable and fully managed open-source search and analytics service that Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides. It is a fully compatible and enhanced version of the popular open-source search engine, Elasticsearch. OpenSearch allows you to search, analyze, and visualize data in real time, enabling a wide range of use cases such as log analysis, full-text search, monitoring, and application performance monitoring (APM).

AWS OpenSearch takes care of the underlying infrastructure, including deployment, scaling, monitoring, and patching, so you can focus on using the service rather than managing the infrastructure.
