Abstract:
The most straightforward and scalable way to use ElasticSearch is with data that can be indexed once and forgotten about, but it's not the only way. At People.ai, we leverage ElasticSearch's unique capabilities as a high-performance aggregation engine used for data that is updated frequently. In this presentation, I'll discuss some of the challenges we overcame in learning how to support this use-case while managing search performance.
