The Barcelona Couchbase group have a meetup this evening (see below) where they'll be talking about the Couchbase integration with Elasticsearch. I'll be going to answer any questions about Elasticsearch. And the beer is free! Couchbase are paying :)
Tugdual Grall, “Tug”, a Technical Evangelist at Couchbase will examine how you can integrate your Couchbase Server 2.0 cluster with an ElasticSearch Cluster to provide enhanced querying capabilities for your application.
First, we will look at how easy it is to set up the integration between the two clusters. Next, we will look at how we can combine the capabilities of both systems, performing fast full text search in ElasticSearch then performing fast document lookup on the results by document ID in Couchbase Server. And finally we will review some real world examplesand consider how they can be implemented using Couchbase and ElasticSearch.
In addition to this main topic, Tugdual will be available to discuss/demonstrate other interesting advantages of NoSQL/Couchbase as developer or system administrator.
