Getting started with Elasticsearch

Hello Folks!!

I’m writing these articles to share my experience and experiments which I have done with Elasticsearch.

I have started experimenting Elasticsearch for its ultimate purpose – full text search. I was much impressed by the way real time searches happening and the working of analytics engine.

Previously, I have used SQL databases in my project which will handle millions of data every day. And plenty full text searches have been happened in databases via application & APIs. To increase the performance of full text search in the application, I have started experimenting Elasticsearch.

What is Elasticsearch?

Elasticsearch is a search server based on Lucene. It provides a distributed, multitenant-capable full-text search engine with a HTTP web interface and schema-free JSON documents. (Wikipedia)

Elasticsearch is a real-time distributed search and analytics engine. It allows you to explore your data at a speed and at a scale never before possible. It is used for full-text search, structured search, analytics, and all three in combination

Where we can start?

Elasticsearch: The Definitive Guide is very good source to explore Elasticsearch concepts. And book has been created with no assumptions, it’s written in the way as complete beginner to – search and distributed systems.

Elasticsearch encourages us to explore our data with a full text search functionality to our users.

Let’s discuss about basic terminologies and installation of Elasticsearch in upcoming post 🙂

A tour to Elasticsearch

Ah! It’s time to make some posts about Elasticsearch.

I’ve spent some quality time to experiment the Elasticsearch for my official and study purpose.

In upcoming articles, I’m planning to cover various topics under Elasticsearch. The topics will starts with basic concepts and will extends to some detailed level like preparing Production level configuration.

What you will know at the end of entire articles?

You Know, for Search

So get ready to explore Elasticsearch!!

Posts coming soon… 🙂
