The Elastic Stack that's Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana, and Beats are open source projects that help you take data from any source, any format and search, analyze, and visualize it in real time.

Elasticsearch is an open source horizontally-scalable, distributed search and analytics engine based on Apache Lucene. Elasticsearch is one of the most popular projects on Github with 600+ contributors, 5,100+ forks and 20,000+ commits. Organizations around the world, from startups to governments to large corporations, are using Elasticsearch for numerous use cases to gain real-time insights from large volumes of data.

Logstash and Beats can be used to ingest data from various sources into Elasticsearch and Kibana is a powerful tool for visualization and data exploration.

This talk will introduce you how to utilize the Elastic Stack in a conceptual and hands-on, practical way. We will talk about Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana, Beats and also show some typical use cases. And you will see each of these concepts in action via live demos. At the end of this talk you will be comfortable spinning up your very own Elastic Stack for your very own use case!
