With a hammer in your hand… ElasticSearch

ElasticSearch combines the power of Apache Lucene (NoSQL since 2001) and the movement of distributed, scalable high-performance NoSQL solutions into easy to use schema free search engine that can serve full-text search request, key-value lookups, schema free analytics requests, facets or even suggestions in real-time. This talk will give an introduction to the key features of ElasticSearch with live examples.

The talk won’t be an exhaustive feature presentation but rather an overview of what and how ElasticSearch can do for you.
