Atlanta, Georgia – February 10, 2015 – Shadow-Soft, the Open Source system integration experts, and Elasticsearch, a worldwide leader in Open Source search and analytics software, today announced a new partnership that will allow Shadow-Soft to deliver Elasticsearch enterprise solutions, professional services and training.
Elasticsearch is an Open Source, distributed, RESTful search and analytics engine based on Apache Lucene that delivers actionable insights in real-time from almost any type of structured or unstructured data. It is highly-scalable, multi-tenant capable, and achieves extremely fast search responses by searching an index instead of text directly.

“Our partnership with Elasticsearch is of extreme strategic importance to Shadow-Soft. Seeing the growing demand for near real-time business analytics, Elasticsearch gives our customers profound new insights into their data,” said Tony Stafford, Vice President of Technical Solutions at Shadow-Soft. “Additionally, the Open Source origins and highly scalable design made it a great fit into our solution and professional services portfolio.”


“This strategic partnership between Shadow-Soft and Elasticsearch combines the experience and expertise of Shadow-Soft’s end-to-end enterprise Open Source solution and consulting practices with Elasticsearch’s ubiquitous search and
analytics technology,” said Jobi George, Senior Director of Global Business Development at Elasticsearch. “The partnership will help meet the growing demand for Elasticseach and provides a simple pathway for building and deploying customized search-based applications for our joint commercial and public sector customers.”
