Elastic Cloud Inside Out

Elastic Cloud runs thousands of clusters and is growing rapidly, while maintaining solid SLAs and allowing users to scale out, upgrade, and reliably monitor their clusters. Ever wonder how it works?

This session will go under the hood into how Elastic Cloud is built, how it handles complex tasks like efficient placement, zero-downtime upgrades, and host failures, as well as how the Elastic Cloud team uses it to orchestrate and manage thousands of clusters for Elastic Cloud customers.
