Announcing the Siren Platform (previously Kibi EE) GA release
Today we’re super happy to announce that Kibi 5.x is out of beta! With the general availability release today we are changing the distribution name – Siren Platform is the new name of our package bundling Kibi (data intelligence frontend, compatible with Kibana plugins) and our new relational backend Vanguard.

Product technology stack
|A Siren Platform deployment|
|Configurations and Plugins||This is the configuration required for your data and use cases. It includes data models, dashboards, widgets, entity visualizations templates, graph transformations, extra plugins and more.||You or your SI (with Siren support), or Siren|
|Kibi (and Sentinl)||Kibi is the analysis front end. Sentinl is the open source Siren application for alerting and scheduled reporting of events.||Siren|
|Vanguard Nodes||These are the backend node(s) that power Kibi. We define a Vanguard node as an Elasticsearch node in which the Vanguard and Searchguard technologies are installed. Existing Elasticsearch clusters can be upgraded to be Vanguard nodes by installing the required plugins.||Siren|
|Big Data Layer||This is your enterprise big data infrastructure. Kibi currently requires data to be loaded inside an Elasticsearch/Vanguard cluster, but from Q4 it will be also capable of operating directly on data in JDBC backends.||You or Siren (hosted, managed or professional services)|
