Search in the Cloud: Build Your Own or AWS?
There are a handful of solutions available today when it comes to integrating search into your website or application. Which is the right option for your organization? Or, does it make more sense to roll your own? Join us on Wednesday April 23rd for an insightful discussion among a panel of experts about their search solutions of choice, whether it’s a homegrown tool built specifically for their use case or a pre-existing platform like AWS CloudSearch, ElasticSearch or Solr.
Tom Hill, Solutions Architect at Amazon CloudSearch
Tom Hill has been working on search since implementing search for Zvents.com in 2006 on Lucene, and then the initial versions of Solr. He continued to work with Solr at Lucidimagination/LucidWorks and then moved to a9.com, an Amazon Subsidiary, where he's a Solutions Architect on the CloudSearch team.
On the panel, Tom will discuss his experience building Amazon’s CloudSearch, including the latest version which was released March 24th. This release was a major revision, adding many new features, such as support for 32 languages.
Jon Dokulil, VP of Engineering at Hudl
Jon runs the ‘Foundation Tribe’ at Hudl and focuses on consistent performance, availability and team productivity. Hudl hosts video and stats from over 55,000 teams worldwide to help coaches win.
On the panel Jon will talk about his experience running their own Solr installation and how excited he is to soon swap out self-hosted Solr for self-hosted ElasticSearch.
Jeff Whelpley, Chief Architect at GetHuman
