Elastic Stack 6.5
Built on an open source foundation, the Elastic Stack lets developers reliably and securely take data from any source, in any format, and search, analyze, and visualize it in real time. This latest release aims to help users of the Elastic Stack store, manage, and analyze their data more efficiently, scale their operations, and improve how they interact with their data through new user interfaces (UIs), visualizations, and dashboards. 6.5 contains the initial release of our Infrastructure solution and a dedicated UI for log viewing, giving observability teams a more efficient and streamlined way of navigating their data. It also introduces distributed tracing support and the general availability of Java and Go agents in Elastic APM. This release also launches a number of highly awaited Kibana features - Canvas, a powerful way for users to build pixel-perfect infographic experiences on live data and Spaces, a new way for users to group and organize their dashboards and visualizations into "spaces", and secure access by roles like security, operations, finance, and marketing.
