Elastic Stack

Elasticsearch is a realtime, distributed search and analytics engine that is horizontally scalable and capable of solving a wide variety of use cases. At the heart of Elastic Stack, it centrally stores your data so you can discover the expected and uncover the unexpected. 

Elasticsearch is at the heart of Elastic Stack. It stores all your data and provides search and analytic capabilities in a scalable way.

Logstash helps in centralizing event data such as logs, metrics, or any other data in any format. It can perform a number of transformations before sending it to a stash of your choice. It is a key component of Elastic Stack, used to centralize the collection and transformation processes in your data pipeline.

Beats is a platform of open source lightweight data shippers. Its role is complementary to Logstash. Logstash is a server-side component, whereas Beats has a role on the client side. Beats consists of a core library, libbeat, which provides an API for shipping data from the source, configuring the input options, and implementing logging.
