Elasticsearch makes it easy to add efficient and scalable searches to enterprise applications. Busy administrators and developers love this open source real-time search and analytics engine because they can simply install it, make a few tweaks, and go on with their work. Elasticsearch is miles deep, so once it's up and running, it can be used to build nearly any custom search solution imaginable.

Elasticsearch in Action shows how to build scalable search applications using Elasticsearch. It starts off with an informative overview and an engaging introductory example. Within the first few chapters, it discusses core concepts needed to implement basic searches and efficient indexing. With the fundamentals well in hand, readers will gain an organized view of how to optimize their designs. The book focuses on Elasticsearch's REST API via HTTP. Code snippets are written mostly in bash using curl, which makes them easily translatable to other languages.
