EraCloud offers fully managed, hosted EraSearch. With EraCloud, you can spend less time maintaining your log-management setup, focusing instead on learning and getting the most from your data.

Every EraCloud account comes with a free trial that ends after 60 days or when you reach 1 Terabyte of data. You also get the following:

  • EraSearch database - A high-performance, scalable database for log management.
  • EraSearch UI - A UI for exploring and interacting with log data.

There are two options for creating an EraCloud account. You can create an account directly through Era Software or you can go through Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace. This page walks through both options.

Note: The getting started guides work with EraSearch on EraCloud. It's the fastest way to set up and use EraSearch. If you want to run and manage EraSearch yourself on your own cloud infrastructure, visit the self-hosted EraSearch installation series.

Note: As of October 2021, EraCloud supports hosting on AWS only. Future releases will support Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure.
