Contributing to Open Distro For Elasticsearch

Alolita Sharma   

When you want to process your application logs or implement full text search, what bubbles up is Elasticsearch as the go-to technology. Elasticsearch is a popular, open source distributed search and analytics package. The Elasticsearch stack adds a usability layer to be able to search, analyze and process your Apache Lucene data.

Enter Open Distro for Elasticsearch. Open Distro is an open source distribution designed by AWS to enhance and protect the open source capabilities of the base Elasticsearch engine. This distribution bundles critical open source components including security, cluster diagnostics, alerting and SQL capabilities.

This talk will guide you through these Open Distro features as well as cover the project’s community driven approach to building a robust open source search stack with open source tools. The talk will also dive into performance features such as monitoring your Elasticsearch cluster using health metrics for finding root causes and applying the right-sized solution.
