Architectural overview

Siren Investigate operates by connecting to an Elasticsearch cluster with the Siren Federate plugin installed. This plugin enables cross-index joins, direct JDBC "virtualization" to remote databases and more.

These database tables and Elasticsearch indexes are connected together via a Data Model. This drives the experience of connecting Dashboards, Graph Browser, Maps and more.
