Running infrastructure at Elastic with Elastic

Michael is a software engineer on the Elastic Infrastructure team. The infrastructure team is responsible for building and running all aspects of the software to help software companies deliver great software. The team uses Elastic products as much as possible during their daily work, so we can get feedback and test new features as early as possible. During this presentation, Michael will lead you through our Stack products and share with us how we can use our products to get the job done.
