GameDuell TechTalk with Boaz Leskes About Resiliency in Elasticsearch (and Apache Lucene)

Taking place as a free side event to Berlin Buzzwords on 3 June 2015 at 15:00

From May 31st to June 3rd 2015, data engineers will gather at the 6th Berlin Buzzwords conference  to discuss the latest trends in storing, processing and searching big data. Alongside the numerous lectures, barcamps and workshops, GameDuell steps in by hosting a free side event of its own. On Wednesday, June 3rd 2015, at 15:00, the Berlin-based games company will be hosting the next edition in its TechTalk series, this time dedicated to resiliency in Elasticsearch.

As one of the most popular search engines based on Apache Lucene, Elasticsearch recognizes the crucial importance of being resilient to hardware and network failure. This is why Elasticsearch invests a lot to enable Elasticsearch and Apache Lucene detect and cope with increasingly complex failures. Elasticsearch’s lead developer, Boaz Leskes, will cover the recent highlights and future plans of the company’s resiliency strategy. He will explain all aspects of Elasticsearch, ranging from the lowest level of a single file, through network connection of a single node, and all the way up to distributed failures on the cluster level. Even though the talk is about possible failures and various coping strategies, participants will also get an interesting peek under the hood and learn about the inner workings of Elasticsearch. The GameDuell TechTalk will be wrapped up by a Q & A round, where two more Elasticsearch engineers, Adrien Grand and Ryan Ernst, will step in to answer any possible questions ranging from architecture to practical use cases.
