Elastic's sponsorship directly funds the work of the Unicode Consortium in enabling modern software and computing systems to support the widest range of human languages. There are approximately 7,000 living human languages. Fewer than 100 of these languages are well-supported on computers, mobile phones, and other devices. AAC donations are used to improve support for digitally disadvantaged languages, and to help preserve the world’s linguistic heritage.
Elastic builds software to make data usable in real time and at scale for search, logging, security, and analytics use cases. Founded in 2012, Elastic develops the open source Elastic Stack (Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash), X-Pack (commercial features), and Elastic Cloud (a SaaS offering). When Elastic Founder and CEO Shay Banon found out about the Unicode adoption program, he had a cool idea: why not allow every engineer at Elastic (as well as other teammates within the company) to choose and adopt a character?

The Unicode Consortium thanks Elastic for their support!
