About this event

Join us for our upcoming meetup at Qualcomm. The agenda for the evening is:

6:00pm: Doors open. Food & beverages will be provided

6:30pm: Talk #1 starts - How to manage growing Elastic clusters: A multi-cloud/use case deployment story by Elastic's Josh Biol

7:00pm: Talk #2 starts - IT at Qualcomm is using Elasticsearch in a rather unique configuration to accelerate IT operations by Paul Krizak

8:00-8:30pm: We'll wrap things up

Over the years, Elastic has evolved to more than just Elasticsearch. In this session we'll go over the journey of Elastic Stack, the different use cases that grew out of it, and how to manage the stack as the number of use cases and clusters grow in your organization.

Josh is a Consulting Engineer for Elastic helping customers solve their problems and getting the most out of the stack. He is a local here in San Diego, CA.

Elasticsearch is normally used to store and search through time-series data (e.g. logs). But as a search engine at its heart, it’s also good at storing other things. This presentation will review how IT at Qualcomm is using Elasticsearch in a rather unique configuration to accelerate IT operations. Not only is Elasticsearch being used for non-time-series data, but it’s also being run in Docker containers. On VMs. On NFS storage. The horror!! We’ll discuss how this architecture was developed, why it works for us, and identify the pitfalls we found.

Paul Krizak is a Sr. Staff IT Engineer at Qualcomm, in the Unix Configuration Management team, who have been doing “devops” since before it had a name. He and his colleagues develop configuration management, OS imaging, and reporting tools used by the IT Operations group to maintain tens of thousands of systems across nearly every continent.
