About the subject
Elasticsearch is an industry standard open source search engine. Built on Apache Lucene, Elasticsearch is lightning-fast, secure, and easy to use! Combine Elasticsearch with the Logstash data processing pipeline and the Kibana data analytics dashboard, and you have the powerful Elastic Stack platform, a complete data storage and analysis platform.
About the video
Elasticsearch 6 and Elastic Stack starts by showing you how to install Elasticsearch 6 on your PC and configure it on a cluster. From there, you’ll learn to bucket and analyze data using Elasticsearch and you’ll monitor your cluster’s health using X-Pack. You’ll set up search indices and query your data using common approaches like fuzzy searches, partial matches, search-as-you-type, and more. This amazing course teaches you to perform rolling restarts, scale up your cluster, and even spin up clusters in the cloud using Amazon Elasticsearch Service and the Elastic Cloud.
With Frank Kane’s practical instruction, you’ll tackle the often-overlooked problem of importing data into an Elasticsearch index. You’ll delve into raw RESTful queries and scripts using Elasticsearch APIs, and you’ll see how Elasticsearch seamlessly integrates with other big data systems like Spark and Kafka. After you’ve mastered Elasticsearch basics, you’ll explore the Elastic Stack. You’ll experience the data processing power of Logstash and pick up data analytics techniques with the interactive Kibana visual dashboard! Every lesson has hands-on examples, so you’ll practice your new search and analysis skills as you go!
For tech-minded individuals familiar with web services and REST. Some exposure to Linux and JSON-formatted data would also be beneficial.
