Renat Zubairov and Igor Drobiazko founded elastic.io in 2012.
On February 26, 2014, the company announced that it closed its first seed round of investments, amount undisclosed. Currently, Elastic.io is venture-backed by two investors with background in IT, Ali Alghanim and Fabian von Kuenheim. Fabian von Kuenheim is also Board Member and Advisor at Elastic.io.
In May, 2015, Elastic.io went into strategic partnership with T-Systems, German global IT services and consulting company headquartered in Frankfurt.
Elastic.io's main product is its microservices-based integration platform as a service (iPaaS), though in its recent report on platforms as a service, Gartner noticed that Elastic.io is currently considered as both an iPaaS vendor and a pure-play iSaaS (Citizen Integrator Software as a Service) vendor.
The company targets with its platform independent software vendors, system integrators and enterprise companies.
The Elastic.io Integration Platform is designed as a set of tools for data transformation and data integration both cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-ground. It belongs to the hybrid integration platforms category, as it can be deployed in the cloud as well as on-premise. The set of Elastic.io Integration Platform tools includes:
Connector templates - open-sourced integration component templates for enterprise and SaaS applications, which can be modified and expanded by third-party developers
Java and Node.js-based software development kits - open-sourced SDKs for building own integration components for third-party and in-house developed systems, databases, applications, and APIs
Integration Management API - company's own JSON-based REST API for automating and scripting the Elastic.io platform's functionality, embedding it into custom applications, or building new products on top of the platform
Secure Integration Bridge (SIB) - designed to connect cloud-based applications, systems, databases and platforms to on-premise in cases when the Elastic.io Integration Platform is deployed in the cloud
The Elastic.io platform is microservices-based, with Apache Mesos and Docker underlying the software. This means that each integration flow, each integration components, and the platform itself are composed of Docker containers connected to each other via persistent messaging FIFO queue. Each container is limited with its own resources.
The platform supports both synchronous (aka Request/Response method) and asynchronous communication between applications and systems. Data is obtained either through polling APIs or via webhooks.
The Elastic.io Integration Platform characteristics include:
Horizontal scalability due to the microservices-based architecture
Vertical scalability via individual container resource configuration (RAM + CPU)
