When you want to process your application logs, Elasticsearch bubbles up as the go-to technology. Elasticsearch is a popular, open source distributed search and analytics package. The Elasticsearch stack adds a usability layer to search, analyze and process your Apache Lucene data. Open Distro for Elasticsearch is a full open source package designed by AWS to enhance and protect the open source capabilities of the base Elasticsearch engine. This distribution bundles critical open source components including security, cluster diagnostics, alerting and SQL capabilities for Elasticsearch. My talk will guide you through Open Distro features and build tools. I will also cover the project's community driven approach to building a great open source search stack where you can join in and collaborate.
