Routing in Elasticsearch at Instacart

As a production data set grows, organizing and controlling the way documents are stored becomes an integral part of performance tuning. In this presentation, I will discuss why we use routing at Instacart, and common pitfalls to avoid during implementation.

Elasticsearch + E-commerce

Although Elasticsearch started as a search engine, it has grown into a powerful analytics engine. In an e-commerce context, we will discuss how Elasticsearch can be used for more than search and analytics. I will talk about the following:

1) Using Elasticsearch to make e-commerce product recommendations

2) Using Alerting to send notifications if less than 5 orders are placed in last 5 minutes.
