Elasticsearch 2.0 Overview & Demo

Elasticsearch 2.0 is out and it's magical. (Read Elasticsearch Creator and Elastic Co-Founder Shay Banon's blog post to hear the full story.)

Get an overview of all the enhancements and a demo in this video with Shane Connelly, Sr Product Manager of Elasticsearch. He covers Elasticsearch 2.0 highlights, including: 

  • Better resource utilization: reduced memory usage, improved index compression
  • Improved query execution and caching
  • Hardening: localhost binding, Java security manager, atomic and checksummed file handling
  • Pipeline aggregations for anomaly detection, derivatives, time-series predictions, and much more

Then, Zach Tong, Elastic developer and co-author of The Elasticsearch Definitive Guide, gives a demo of using pipeline aggregations.
