DESCRIPTION

Elasticsearch makes it easy to add efficient and scalable searches to your enterprise applications. Busy administrators and developers love this open source real-time search and analytics engine because they can simply install it, make a few tweaks, and go on with their work. And once Elasticsearch is up and running, you'll discover that it's miles deep, so you can build nearly any custom search solution you can imagine.

Elasticsearch in Action teaches you how to build scalable search applications using Elasticsearch. You'll ramp up fast, with an informative overview and an engaging introductory example. Within the first few chapters, you'll pick up the core concepts you need to implement basic searches and efficient indexing. With the fundamentals well in hand, you'll gain an organized view of how to optimize your design. The book focuses on Elasticsearch's REST API via HTTP. Code snippets are written mostly in bash using curl, which makes them easily translatable to other languages.

WHAT'S INSIDE

This book is perfect for developers building search-oriented applications. It's also a fantastic guide for sysadmins or DBAs managing enterprise search.
