While it costs 1000's of dollars per month at other places for a cluster of 3, it runs around $100 @amidb, if you decide it to host it yourself. This is including hosts/bandwidth/transfer and SSD. You will save on other colud nosql databases as cassandra is included. You will also experience savings on cloud file storage costs, and much more.... See More
Instead of deciding to drop support for their older versions and cutting people off with an 'end-of-life', Bonsai offers continued support for clients who are unable or unwilling to switch to the latest version. This, however comes at an increased price. See More
Although this is provided by the creators of elastic search, the support is not as effective. It seems they only want you to buy the Gold / Platinum package for support. Even though you clearly give proof to the support personnel that there is something wrong with the provisioning of the cluster do not be surprised if you get a mail back saying "Everything looks fine...blah blah ...consider taking gold/platinum support...blah blah."

Rather than pricing by number of documents or API calls, they price by instance size. So if you have a lot of documents (>100k) that are very small (50MB), or a large number of shards which are small, you won't be arbitrarily forced into a higher pricing tier. Same deal with number of requests - if you need more memory on your instance, then upgrade. If you have a lot of very fast requests, you can stay on a lower tier. See More
Clusters aren't shared, customers get their own dedicated cluster. Memory and storage is reserved - there's no upper limit in terms of indexes or documents to be stored - and Linux containers are used (LXC) for and process and resource isolation, which means you get the memory you are paying for without having to compete for it with other customers.

Elasticsearch gained its popularity amongst developers by being enjoyable to use. A simple feature comparison against it's competition doesn't convey the significant advantages of just how easy it is to work with. This is due to multiple design choices such as the use of JSON for the API and queries. See More
