Elasticsearch is an search and analytics engine, initially released in 2010 by Elasticsearch BV (now part of Elastic NV). OpenSearch is a community-driven, open-source search and analytics engine, forked from Elasticsearch by AWS in 2021 after Elastic NV changed the license for some of its code.
Timeline of the major events:
Today, Elasticsearch and OpenSearch are both powerful search and analytics engines that are widely used in a variety of applications, including log analysis, e-commerce, and enterprise search.
While Elasticsearch and OpenSearch have some differences in their features and licensing, they share many similarities in their underlying technology and community-driven development.
