Facebook & Elasticsearch: for Your Holiday Viewing Pleasure

By Livia Froelicher

Our days are a bit quiet here at Elasticsearch this week, as we and many of our friends and colleagues spend time with our loved ones for the holidays. We won't be bringing you our usual update in This Week in Elasticsearch, but didn't want to leave anyone hungry for Elasticsearch awesome.

So, without further ado, we bring you this video from the inaugural Elasticsearch Silicon Valley meetup, in which you'll learn more about Facebook's use of Elasticsearch, including:

  • Facebook's migration from Apache Solr to Elasticsearch
  • The company's use of Elasticsearch to power internal search for developer tool sets and libraries
  • How Elasticsearch powers Facebook's Community Help Site
  • And much, much more on their use case.

 

You'll also hear from me on Elasticsearch 1.0 and enjoy some lively audience Q&A.

Many thanks to Facebook for hosting us and sharing their Elasticsearch use cases.

We hope you enjoy the video. Let us know what you think.

Happy holidays to all of you celebrating them this week and next, and happy hacking on Elasticsearch!
