Ingest, Search, Visualize, and Analyze your data

What is the OFO Stack?

"OFO" is the acronym for three open source projects: OpenSearch, Fluent Bit/Fluentd, and OpenSearch Dashboard. OpenSearch is a search and analytics engine. Fluent Bit / Fluentd are server‑side data processing pipeline software that ingests data, transforms it, and then sends it to a database search engine like OpenSearch. OpenSearch Dashboard lets users visualize data with charts and graphs in OpenSearch Dashboard.

The OFO Stack is an open source replacement for the ELK stack. The ELK stack is no longer a viable option for many people due to licensing changes making it not free software and not an open source license.

How Can I Contribute?

We love contributors! Right now the OFO Stack is still in its infancy. We currently are looking for help with documentation, tutorials, and best practices on how to build, install, and configure an OFO stack. If you would like to contribute, please join us on Github.
