ElasticSearch: You know, for Search

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Wednesday 5th June, 2013

3:45pm to 4:30pm (PST)

Elasticsearch is an Open Source (Apache 2), Distributed, RESTful, Search Engine built on top of Apache Lucene. Its was designed from the ground up to be cloud friendly. This session will explore the migration of Sakai's search system to an embedded ElasticSearch solution. The fundamentals of deploying and using ElasticSearch will be discussed in a way that is useful for any project that might need its capabilities.

Elasticsearch is designed to scale out horizontally. As such its being used in production on top of huge datasets. Our experiences tuning the system for typical data sets experienced with Sakai will be presented.
