Elasticsearch sniffing best practices: What, when, why, how

Elasticsearch powers search experiences for so many tools and apps used today, from operational analytics dashboards to maps showing the closest restaurants with patios so you can get out of the house.

What your Elastic App Search analytics are telling you

At Elastic, we love data. It’s the backbone of what we do: search. And that data takes many forms. A knowledge base article showing how to reset your cable box — data. Logs from your network — data.

How to add powerful (Elastic)search to existing SQL applications

Elasticsearch has a lot of strengths (speed, scale, relevance), but one of its most important strengths is its flexibility to be added to existing environments without the need for any sort of architectural overhaul.
