What Is Open Distro For Elasticsearch (ODFE)?

As of version 7.11 the Elastic Stack as distributed by Elastic is no longer completely open source. As the platform is built on the open source versions of Elasticsearch and Kibana we are integrating our platform with the AWS offering of Open Distro to bring the best of these new features to all of our users.

Open Distro delivers enterprise-grade access controls for Kibana so that users can tighten access to their dashboards and data visualisations and can more readily configure fine-grained security permissions.

The open-source offering is indispensable for its use in a variety of use cases including log analytics, real-time application monitoring, search backend, business intelligence & clickstream analytics.

Open Distro For Elasticsearch Introduction
hosted open distro stackshosted open distro stacks

How Does The Platform Harness ODFE?’s Elasticsearch and Kibana offering allows users to create their stack and send data within minutes and frees our customers from having to consider hosting and maintaining the Elastic Stack on premise.'s managed solution for the Elastic Stack gives you access to the best open-source attributes of Elasticsearch and Kibana with in-place upgrades, expert support engineers and all of the essential alerting and log monitoring features required for securing your operations and maintaining compliance.

All users will be able to access the Open Distro version of the Elastic Stack and current users of legacy versions of ELK will have the option to upgrade to the newest version of Elasticsearch and Kibana for free. If you want to find out how to do this feel free to reach out to a member of the support team via live chat.

SQL and PPL Query Workbench

Our managed service allows you to reap all of the benefits of Elasticsearch's full-text search and scoring capabilities. Querying your data has been made even easier with the addition of Open Distro for Elasticsearch's SQL and PPL (Piped Processing Language) query workbench.

If you are already familiar with making Elasticsearch queries using SQL then the SQL Workbench will be a welcome addition to your Elastic Stack workflow. users are now able to query data from Elasticsearch much easier (in comparison to using standard DSL), test their findings before saving and convert SQL into its REST equivalent where required.

In the event that you are more comfortable with seeing your query as a tabbed format or wish to export this as a CSV, JDBC or JSON file this is also possible thanks to this convenient interface.

Scheduled Reports

Open Distro for Elasticsearch and Kibana also includes scheduled reporting which allows users to generate PDF, PNG and CSV reports which can be configured to be generated on a recurring basis.

If you are to select cron based scheduling you can have an even higher flexibility on when reports are sent.

Optional features of reporting include the ability to select custom headers and footers for dashboard and data visualisation reports.

Kibana Multi-Tenancy

Thanks to’s offering of the latest version of managed Elasticsearch built upon Open Distro users can now take advantage of Kibana Multi-Tenancy. Want to find out more about Kibana multi-tenancy? Then why not see if you are are eligible for a Kibana demo?

This allows our platform users to create named containers for storing their index patterns, dashboards, reports and visualisations. These containers are called tenants and can be set to only be accessible by certain roles with the correct read/write properties.

Private tenancies can be set for exploratory activities and drafts that you only wish to be viewable by yourself.

Tenants can be set so that when a user logs in under your specified role they are set to read, write or edit on the dashboards they are allowed to view. A limited view can secure access to sensitive data that might not be suitable for company-wide visibility, for example your sales teams are highly unlikely to be required to be the first to know about a security breach or traffic spikes occurring against a server.

    Ringier testimonial

    "Shortly after deploying, we were able to show the results and impact. The speed at which we were able to deploy the solution was phenomenal. The ELK stack was providing results from very early on.

    We can now better understand our security measures and our network. Our decisions can be made with data to back them up. We have a better understanding of the health of our systems."
