Course overview

This training introduce deeply the famous search engine and analytics solution based on Lucene. This is one of NoSQL solutions. It can store documents, search for it, retreive them with a query DSL and make analytics on search results.

Elasticsearch is widely used for infrastructure monitoring, ELK, or adding a powerfull search engine for existing applications.

The training cover a lot of features: installing, request, advanced search, administration and operations, scalability and sizing. Its the opportunity for your team to integrate elasticsearch in your next projects.

The training introduce each section with a practical part so you can deeply understand each concept.
