Oracle has released the second beta version of its ElasticSearch-powered web services and cloud solution, with a number of new features.
The new version of ElasticSearch, version 4.6, will bring a number changes to the service.
In particular, it brings support for Java 9 and Java 8, as well as support for new indexes and new search capabilities, such as new search results, new search features for queries and more.
Other changes in the service include support for JVM-based multi-tenant and multi-core workloads, as the service is now able to scale with new Oracle technologies.
The ElasticSearch service has been designed to support new types of workloads that are more resilient to new Oracle architectures and technologies, such the introduction of the new Java SE 9 runtime.
The new version also includes support for a number new query types and a new search feature called Query-Permission.
The service is currently being rolled out to customers in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and the United Arab Emirates, as Oracle continues to push the service into its wider distribution and to more markets.
The release of the beta is an important step in the journey to bringing ElasticSearch to the masses, as many companies are already using the service to provide more robust, reliable and cost-effective web services.
The beta version will be available in early 2018, and the company expects it to be fully released later in 2018.
