Aiven joins the OpenSearch community

A hand holding a magnifying glass represents Aiven joining the OpenSearch community

The story so far

A number of companies, Aiven included, immediately took a stance for open source, and an upcoming open source fork for Elasticsearch and Kibana was announced, spearheaded by AWS.

Now that fork has a name, a scope and a plan.

Aiven is for OpenSearch

The thing to note is that OpenSearch is still very much in Alpha and not ready to be productized. As soon as the project is released and Aiven has had a chance to evaluate it, we’ll pick it up and make it available for our customers. Our current timeline guesstimate for this is by the end of this summer. And of course, at that point we’ll change our product name, too.

Effects of the change

Aiven will continue to address any issues in all the Elasticsearch versions we provide and continue to offer the high level of support we’re known for.
