ElasticSearch? Isn't that a cloud service?


(David Jensen-2) #1

I went to a Lucene/Solr Meetup in San Francisco recently and at the
end, when everybody makes their announcements, I got up and asked if
anybody else had experience using ElasticSearch. After the
announcements were done, I talked to a few people and most folks had
the impression that ElasticSearch is a hosted search service (like
IndexTank), including an new engineer at Twitter. Nobody seemed to
know it was an open source project. Other people I spoke with had
never heard of it but thought the idea was cool.

Shay, I don't know where you are located but I highly encourage you to
do one or more of the following:

  • Get out the the SF Bay Area for a Lucene Meetup and do a
    presentation for ElasticSearch.
  • Go to Boston for the Lucene conference

After we deploy ElasticSearch in production (and I help with some of
the documentation) I'll do a presentation at a Lucene meetup if you
don't. :wink:

I call this generic products syndrome / problem: "the attack of the killer
tomatoes", which even has an Arghhh! in the poster!. Arghhh!, you say
tomato, I say an "open source, distributed, RESTful search engine that kicks
some ass and chews bubble gum".

Not terribly sure where people picked that up, though now that you mention
that, mmmm... ;). In any case, I am not based in the bay area (located at
Israel), but have myself already a set of things lined up next time I am
there (not too sure when it will be though). In any case, we should meet up.
If by chance there is a Lucene meetup, I would be happy to attend.

I do try and get the "elasticsearch" gospel out as much as I can, but also
relying on the good old power of open source and other people spreading the
word as well. After all, I can only warp myself so many times... . So, it
would be great if you can present elasticsearch, and I am here to help with
the presentation or any questions that might arise during it. But other
means, like blogging (yea, that archaic >140 letters thingies), that <=140
letters thingies, and other spred the word social shenanigans are welcomed.

In any case, my next planned gig is at Devoxx, Belgium. I do plan to attend
more of those when possible. More importantly, hoping other elasticsearch
users can attend and present it. Clinton gave a kick ass presentation at the
perl conference last friday.

Shay,

I've suggested for ElasticSearch to be a topic at the next SF Bay Area
Lucene/Solr Meetup on Meetup.com. I volunteered myself to give the
presentation. We'll see what happens. General the format of the meetup
is three 20-30 minute presentations.

Do you already have a pre-made presentation slide-deck that I can
start with? It would have to be fairly short 10-15 minutes. Plus I
would want to do a demo of how quick and easy it is to get going.

Yea, those are the two presentations (the first one by me). I have the
keynote presentation if you want source. I can also be available online
while you give it if people ask interesting questions. Just tell me when it
is.

Shay,

There will be interesting questions for certain. It appears that the
meetup is only every 3 months so it may be November before the next
one but I'll keep you and the mailing list posted.
