AWS forks Elasticsearch and Kibana as license changes

Ever since AWS took Elasticsearch and decided to sell a managed version of it there has been controversy around AWS and Elasticsearch. Now that the software created by Elastic is being switched to the Server-Side Public License
(SSPL), which is not a very permissive license, AWS is going ahead and forking the projects.

The debate rages around this. Few people feel sympathy with the behemoth that is AWS, but they don’t seem to be in violation of any licenses. Elastic have definitely worked hard on Elasticsearch and arguably deserves an opportunity to profit from their work. This new license raises significant concern though.

I don’t think we’ll see this settle anytime soon, just like the issue of open source sustainability is neither easy nor straightforward.

Querying 10 years of GitHub data with GHTorrent and Libraries.io

There are two fun angles coming from this article.

  1. The team over at CHAOSSEARCH has built ElasticSearch-like functionality on top of a AWS S3 buckets. It looks compelling for anyone who’s managed a large ES cluster and is looking at other ways to get search functionally out of a lot of data.
  2. Explore GitHub data shows a ton of interesting insights around popular and unpopular licenses, programming languages, and the libraries available to explore them.

Elasticsearch and doubling down on "open"

Philipp Krenn joined the show to talk with us about Elasticsearch, the problem it solves, where it came from, and where it’s at today. We discussed the query language, what it can be compared to, whether or not it’s a database replacement or a database complement, Elasticsearch vs Elastic the company.

We also talked about the details behind Elastic’s plan of “doubling down on open” to open up X-Pack, which is open code paid add-on features to Elasticsearch. We discussed the implications of this on their business model, and what changes will take place at the code and license level on GitHub.
