Talk information:

Improving Elasticsearch resiliency: Igor Motov, Elasticsearch Inc.

As Elasticsearch clusters grow larger, their resilience to hardware and network failure becomes increasingly important. We'll discuss ongoing efforts to improve Elasticsearch with respect to robustness and resiliency in the face of hardware and software failures. The talk will cover what has been done so far and what the Elasticsearch team is planning to do to alleviate potentially serious issues such as split brain and running out of memory on complex requests.

Introduction to Kibana: Binh Ly, Elasticsearch Inc.

Kibana is Elasticsearch’s data visualization engine, allowing you to natively interact with all your data in Elasticsearch via custom dashboards. Kibana’s dynamic dashboard panels are savable, shareable and exportable, displaying changes to queries into Elasticsearch in real-time. You can perform data analysis in Kibana’s beautiful user interface using pre-designed dashboards or update these dashboards in real-time for on-the-fly data analysis. Binh will review the key things in Kibana and will also give a live demo.
