Elasticsearch 6 and Elastic Stack - In Depth and Hands On!

via Udemy


Search, analyze, and visualize big data on a cluster with Elasticsearch, Logstash, Beats, Kibana, and more.

What you'll learn:
  • Install and configure Elasticsearch 6 on a cluster
  • Create search indices and mappings
  • Search full-text and structured data in several different ways
  • Import data into Elasticsearch using several different techniques
  • Integrate Elasticsearch with other systems, such as Spark, Kafka, relational databases, S3, and more
  • Aggregate structured data using buckets and metrics
  • Use Logstash and the "ELK stack" to import streaming log data into Elasticsearch
  • Use Filebeats and the Elastic Stack to import streaming data at scale
  • Analyze and visualize data in Elasticsearch using Kibana
  • Manage operations on production Elasticsearch clusters
  • Use cloud-based solutions including Amazon's Elasticsearch Service and Elastic Cloud

NOTE:A NEW VERSION OF THIS COURSE FOR ELASTICSEARCH 7 IS AVAILABLE. You should only enroll in this if you need to learn Elasticsearch 6 specifically. If that's you, read on!

Elasticsearchis a powerful tool not only for powering search on big websites, but also for analyzing big data sets in a matter of milliseconds! It's an increasingly popular technology, and a valuable skill to have in today's job market. This comprehensive course covers it all, from installation to operations, with60 lecturesincluding8 hoursof video.

We'll cover setting up search indices on anElasticsearch 6cluster (if you need Elasticsearch 5- we have another course on that), and querying that data in many different ways. Fuzzy searches, partial matches, search-as-you-type, pagination, sorting - you name it. And it's not just theory, every lesson has hands-on examples whereyou'll practice each skillusing a virtual machine running Elasticsearchon your own PC.

We cover, in depth, the often-overlooked problem ofimporting datainto an Elasticsearch index. Whether it's via raw RESTful queries, scripts using Elasticsearch API's, or integration with other "big data" systems like Spark and Kafka - you'll see many ways to get Elasticsearch started from large, existing data sets at scale. We'll also stream data into Elasticsearch usingLogstashandFilebeat- commonly referred to as the "ELKStack" (Elasticsearch / Logstash / Kibana) or the "Elastic Stack".

Elasticsearchisn't just for search anymore- it has powerfulaggregationcapabilities for structured data. We'll bucket and analyze data using Elasticsearch, and visualize it using the Elastic Stack's web UI,Kibana.

You'll learn how to manageoperationson your Elastic Stack, using X-Pack to monitor your cluster's health, and how to perform operational tasks like scaling up your cluster, and doing rolling restarts. We'll also spin up Elasticsearch clusters in the cloud usingAmazon ElasticsearchServiceand theElastic Cloud.

Elasticsearch is positioning itself to be a much faster alternative to Hadoop, Spark, and Flink for many common data analysis requirements. It's an important tool to understand, and it's easy to use! Dive in with me and I'll show you what it's all about.
