    • How Elastic stack had helped us solve diverse problems
    • growing from few thousand users to 1M users (~25M docs)
  • Goodness of ElasticSearch
  • Log monitoring: From a (to-be-)paid solution to home grown Elastic stack based
  • Analytics solution - discover and uncover in Kibana
  • Architecture of our data pipelines involving Elastic Stack, few micro services and dozens of servers
  • Performance tuning
  • Monitoring and Securing ElasticSearch cluster

Here are the draft slides which will be improved upon.
