Speaker #1 Bio:

Bill Nash is a Traffic Engineer for Verizon Digital Media Services, with a background in CDN and large network management. Odds are good that at any time, including right now, you’re using a section of the internet he was somehow involved with. https://eng.verizondigitalmedia.com/2016/12/20/clownfish/

Talk #2 Abstract:

Cross Cluster Search is a new feature introduced in Elasticsearch 5.3. It overcomes many limitations with the current Tribe Node functionality that accomplishes federated search. In this short talk we cover what Cross Cluster Search, how it works both from an API perspective and internally, and how it compares to Tribe Node.
