This talk will explore some of the differentiating and compelling features that Elasticsearch offers, newer features added in versions 2.x, and those expected in 5.x. I will share real-world uses of Elasticsearch in processing Big Data in ETL and visualization scenarios. I’ll also cover integrating Elasticsearch with Apache Spark for processing large amounts of data in a parallelized fashion, with best practices in building a scale-out and fault-tolerant architecture deployed on AWS.
