About this event

Elastic{ON} 2018 was one of the most significant events in the history of Elastic, the creators and official maintainers of Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. We revealed a record number of exciting new features such as APM, GIS, SQL, Canvas, and Machine Learning Forecasting – and we announced the opening of the code for our commercial features plugin, X-Pack, in a bold move to engage our customers the way we engage our broader open source community. This was the final Elastic{ON} hosted at a global scale, as future Elastic{ON} events will be hosted regionally and closer to our users. Dave will review the highlights of this momentous event and our plans for the near future.
