Are you accustomed to viewing Elasticsearch as merely a clumsy log management tool? At Outbrain, we've harnessed its potential to build a blistering-fast recommendation engine, capable of handling millions of requests within a mere 20 ms.
In this talk, I will provide an overview of how we use Elasticsearch in our real-time recommendation system and how we optimize it. Together we will dive into the challenges we faced along this journey:
* Optimizing search: essential steps to morph Elasticsearch into a race-car
* Indexing for fast search: how index settings impact search performance
Join me on this exhilarating journey as we explore how to transform Elasticsearch into an essential component of high-speed, scalable recommendation engines.
