Elastic N.V. (NYSE: ESTC), the company behind Elasticsearch and the
Elastic Stack, announced a global partnership with Tencent Cloud that

including free and paid proprietary Elastic Stack features.

We’re humbled by the opportunity to work with Tencent, one of the
world’s leading internet technology companies with products like WeChat,
QQ, and Tencent Games. This new relationship exhibits the best
attributes of partnerships Elastic enthusiastically pursues. We want to
give our users the best options to be successful with our products and
solutions. With a rapidly growing Elasticsearch community in China, this
partnership ensures that every user and customer can leverage every
aspect of our engineering efforts across the entire Elastic Stack,
including our free and paid proprietary features, and our solutions on
the Tencent Cloud. We’re also excited to collaborate with Tencent
Cloud’s engineering team and provide localized support. Such efforts are
only made available to partners like Tencent Cloud.

Available in early June, the new Tencent Cloud Elasticsearch Service
service offering will give users access to the full breadth of Elastic features
they’ve been asking for. This includes critical free security features
like TLS for encrypted communications, role-based access control, file
and native authentication, multi-tenancy for Kibana, and the ability to
turn on paid security features like single sign-on, active
directory/LDAP authentication, and field- and document-level security.
In addition, Tencent Cloud will be able to leverage Elastic’s Chinese
localization for Kibana
and other proprietary features like
alerting, monitoring, Canvas, Elasticsearch SQL, index lifecycle
management (ILM), Elastic Maps, and more.

Importantly, the Tencent Elasticsearch Cloud Service will be consistent
with the Elasticsearch
available on Elastic’s own Elastic Cloud offering — as well
as those on other platforms that partner with Elastic — giving users the
freedom to work seamlessly across Cloud services while maintaining
access to the full functionality of the Elastic Stack and Elastic’s
growing set of solutions such as application search, site search,
enterprise search, logging, APM, metrics, security, business analytics,
and more.

The partnership is another step forward for Elastic to align with global
cloud providers like Tencent Cloud to offer a first-class Elasticsearch
Service experience for our users and customers. This also furthers our
commitment to China, as we’ve always believed in building a strong local
foundation to support our users, customers, and partners. Today, our
presence in China has grown to include a strong partner ecosystem and
Elastic employees across engineering, support, community, sales,
business development, and marketing. We look forward to leveraging our
growing China team to make this partnership successful and to help
Tencent Cloud build a wonderful Elasticsearch Service.

“Our partnership with Tencent Cloud gives Elasticsearch users in China
and across the world a first-class experience by providing access to the
full set of Elastic Stack features and collaborative support,” commented
Shay Banon, founder and CEO of Elastic. “We are honored and look forward
to working with Tencent Cloud in the years ahead.”
