MANAGE ELASTICSEARCH OPERATIONS

GET QUOTE

Course overview

This course focus on administration, operations, of an elasticsearch cluster. Install, deploy, monitor, setup and performance tuning. You will learn administration tasks as well: security patch, version upgrade, backup, add or remove nodes, install plugins.

We will focus on security: howto and core principles.

You will learn how to size your cluster and follow best practices.


Main topics

  • – know how to deploy, setup, monitor, tune and sizing an elasticsearch cluster
  • – understand every core principles of an elasticsearch cluster and undesrstand role of every elastic stack elements
  • – audit a cluster in production
  • – be able to perform the basic administration operations
