Why Elasticsearch and web applications belong together?

Web application

The search of your web application or online store is one of the most important components for the satisfaction of your users. If users do not find what they are looking for, the bounce rate increases. Ordinary search engines are usually not what users are used to from a modern application.


This is where Elasticsearch comes in handy. Elasticsearch is an open source search engine optimized to handle huge amounts of data and comes with many standard tools to optimize the search for exactly your field of expertise. With EXWE you have a partner that fully supports you in integrating Elasticsearch.

Elasticsearch makes your search what it should be
Faster search results for big data
Better search results even for complex content
Exciting insights via Kibana dashboards

Passion for technical solutions that go beyond the standard

We help your users find what they're looking for. Elasticsearch is as complex as it is powerful. Everyone is familiar with Google's AutoComplete suggestions, but what seems completely intuitive to the user there is very difficult to teach to a machine. As a service provider with a focus on technical solutions, we love to dive into such complex technologies. From us you get consulting and development services, so that you can pass on the benefits of Elasticsearch to your users, but have no burden with the implementation. To the right, our services at a glance.

  • Integrate Elasticsearch

    We help you to integrate Elasticsearch into your existing web application / online store.

  • Increase performance

    If your normal database can no longer keep up with the search, the reason is often strongly grown data volumes. Elasticsearch was designed for huge amounts of data and provides a remedy.

  • Optimize search results

    Even if you are already using Elasticsearch, it strongly depends on the right configuration. Our experts will optimize the configuration for you.

  • Aggregate data in Kibana dashboards

    Elasticsearch can be used in conjunction with Kibana to aggregate existing data and visualize it in charts. We will put together a customized dashboard for you so that you always have the most important KPIs in view.

What does Elasticsearch actually do?

A short FAQ about Elasticsearch and what it entails.

  • What is Elasticsearch?

    Elasticsearch is a search and analysis engine based on the Apache Lucene library. It allows users to search, analyze, and visualize large amounts of unstructured data in real time. Elasticsearch can be used to collect and index data from a variety of sources, such as log files, documents, and social media, and it allows users to submit natural language search queries. Some of Elasticsearch's key features include support for multilingual search, full-text search, geographic search, and the ability to achieve custom scalability and availability. Elasticsearch is typically used as part of an ELK stack, along with Logstash and Kibana.

  • What is Kibana?

    Kibana is an open source analytics and visualization platform built on top of Elasticsearch. It allows users to explore and visualize large volumes of unstructured data indexed in Elasticsearch. Kibana is typically part of an ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana) and allows users to collect, index and visualize data from a variety of sources, making it a valuable tool for data analysis and processing.

  • What are Kibana Dashboards?

    Kibana Dashboards are visual representations of data that has been indexed in Elasticsearch. They allow users to display data in a simple and intuitive way using charts, tables, maps, and other types of visual elements. With Kibana Dashboards, users can filter, group, and aggregate data by various dimensions to see trends and relationships in their data. In summary, Kibana Dashboards allow users to visualize, explore and analyze their data in real time to identify trends, relationships and patterns in their data.

  • What is open source?

    Open source refers to software whose source code is accessible and modifiable by anyone. This is in contrast to closed or proprietary software, whose source code is not available and can only be modified by the company or individual who developed it. The open source approach allows a broad community of developers to improve the software, fix bugs, and add new features. This often results in open source software being improved faster and better than closed software.

  • What is Logstash?

    Logstash is an open-source data ingestion tool used to collect, process, and route data from a variety of sources to various destinations. It can be used to extract, transform and index data from log files, databases, social media and other sources into a target such as Elasticsearch. Logstash has a variety of plug-ins that allow it to collect data from different sources and route it to different destinations. For example, Logstash can be used to extract data from syslog files and index it into Elasticsearch, or to query data from a MySQL database and write it to a CSV file.

  • What is a database?

    A database is a collection of data structured and organized in a specific way to facilitate data storage, management, and retrieval. Databases are used to store, organize, and query large amounts of data in a simple and efficient manner. There are several types of databases, such as relational databases, document databases, graph-based databases, and key-value databases. Each type of database has its own strengths and weaknesses and is best suited for specific use cases.
