Elastisearch co-founder and chief technology officer, Shay Banon, said the company focus was all about products.

“Elasticsearch is building something bigger than any one technology and so I’m excited to have someone like Gaurav on board, who shares our vision and is going to play an instrumental role in taking our products to the next level,” he said.
