elastic.io is a software vendor specializing in Data Integration. The company provides microservices-based integration software for connecting applications, databases, and APIs, cloud-to-cloud or cloud-to-ground.[1][2] elastic.io has their headquarters in Bonn, Germany.

History

Renat Zubairov [3] and Igor Drobiazko [4] founded elastic.io in 2012.[5]

On February 26, 2014, the company announced that it closed its first seed round of investments, amount undisclosed. At this time elastic.io has been venture-backed by two investors with background in IT, Ali Alghanim and Fabian von Kuenheim.

In May, 2015, elastic.io went into strategic partnership with T-Systems, German global IT services and consulting company headquartered in Frankfurt.[6]

In May, 2017 mVISE AG , German IT company headquartered in Düsseldorf and stocklisted at Scale standard of Frankfurt Stock Exchange purchased a 75% stake in elastic.io GmbH.

Products

elastic.io's main product is its microservices-based integration platform as a service (iPaaS), though in its recent report on platforms as a service, Gartner noticed that elastic.io is currently considered as both an iPaaS vendor and a pure-play iSaaS (Citizen Integrator Software as a Service) vendor.[7]

The company targets with its platform independent software vendors, system integrators and enterprise companies.[8]

The elastic.io Integration Platform is designed as a set of tools for data transformation and data integration both cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-ground. It belongs to the hybrid integration platforms category, as it can be deployed in the cloud as well as on-premises. The set of elastic.io Integration Platform tools includes:

  • Connector templates - open-sourced integration component templates for enterprise and SaaS applications, which can be modified and expanded by third-party developers
  • Java and Node.js-based software development kits - open-sourced SDKs for building own integration components for third-party and in-house developed systems, databases, applications, and APIs
  • Integration Management API - company's own JSON-based REST API for automating and scripting the elastic.io platform's functionality, embedding it into custom applications, or building new products on top of the platform
  • Secure Integration Bridge (SIB) - designed to connect cloud-based applications, systems, databases and platforms to on-premises in cases when the elastic.io Integration Platform is deployed in the cloud

Technology

The elastic.io platform is microservices-based, with Apache Mesos and Docker underlying the software. This means that each integration flow, each integration components, and the platform itself are composed of Docker containers connected to each other via persistent messaging FIFO queue. Each container is limited with its own resources.

The platform supports both synchronous (aka Request/Response method) and asynchronous communication between applications and systems. Data is obtained either through polling APIs or via webhooks.

The elastic.io Integration Platform characteristics include:
