Amazon CloudSearch

Amazon Cloudsearch can be suitable for some queries that require fast data. For example, in our case, we used CloudSearch, in a tool called Global Search. That will search everything like names, emails and a lot of stuff in our application. If you want fast data and you have a simple query, Global Search isn't appropriate for you.

It's well suited to creating dashboards for getting an overview of what is going on with an application.

We did not use the official Kibana support. Documentation was easy enough to follow.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon CloudSearch

I didn't investigate the best alternatives to CloudSearch, but did help with implementing this feature in our application. But from what i tested and used - Cloudsearch is very fast to get queries. Some negative points can be the time to implement this and some configurations that can be tricky.

Kibana is free; it was the first and only thing we've tried in this area.
