About this event

Talk Abstract:

As data capture grows exponentially, consequently our techniques for effectively querying data at scale must grow as well. Come listen to RE/MAX talk about how they use Elastic to effectively implement type-ahead for half a billion requests a month, on a growing dynamic dataset encompassing over a billion combined property and listing documents. This talk will also dig into search holistically, from UI/UX considerations all the way to common and uncommon back-end bottlenecks as you scale your Elastic cluster from millions of requests and documents - to billions.
