Elasticsearch is 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. If you’re a technologist who wants to add Elasticsearch to their tool chest for searching and analyzing big data sets, then go for this Learning Path.
This comprehensive 3-in-1 course is a hands-on guide to using Elasticsearch in conjunction with Elastic Stack, to search, analyze, and visualize data with Elasticsearch, Logstash, Beats, Kibana, and more. You will gain a firm understanding of all the fundamentals of Elasticsearch 6 to build efficient search and analytics applications using Elasticsearch 6. You will also learn what Elastic stack is all about, and how to use it efficiently to build powerful real-time data processing applications. This course covers each and every concept of ElasticSearch and Elastic Stack with the help of practical examples making it easy for you to understand and implement in your own applications.
This training program includes 3 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.
The first course, Learning Elasticsearch 6, begins with explaining you what is Elasticsearch, what is it used for, and why is it important. You will then be introduced to the new features of Elasticsearch 6 and its fundamental components such as indices, documents, nodes and clusters, all which form the dichotomy of Elasticsearch. You will also learn how to add more power to your searches using filters, ranges, and more. Next, you will explore how Elasticsearch can be used with the other components of the Elastic Stack such as LogStash, Kibana, and Beats, to get data into an Elasticsearch cluster. Finally, you will develop a Elasticsearch application.
In the second course, Learning Elastic Stack 6.0, after a quick overview of the newly introduced features in Elastic Stack 6, you'll learn how to set up the stack by installing the tools, and explore their basic configurations. You will then demonstrate the creation of custom plugins using Kibana. You will also get some useful tips on how to use the Elastic Cloud and deploy the Elastic Stack in production environments.
The third course, Mastering ElasticSearch 6.x and the Elastic Stack, focuses on two major use cases with Elasticsearch. The first use case is on leveraging the powerful full-text search engine ElasticSearch is built on, allowing developers to add blazingly fast search features to applications. The second use case is on leveraging different components of the Elastic Stack to continuously monitor applications, infrastructure, or even customer transactions.
By the end of this Learning Path, you will be well-versed with the concepts of Elasticsearch and Elastic Stack to build complete, open source solutions for storing, managing, analyzing, and visualizing structured and unstructured data.
