Elasticsearch is the search engine of choice for some of the very largest companies in the world. The reason Elasticsearch is loved by so many is due to its searching and indexing capabilities.

We will also do some practical examples where we will deploy our own elasticsearch cluster, manually create an index, use a bash command to import large amounts of JSON documents and run our first search (query) within elasticsearch.
