I'm very happy to announce that Anne Veling (Freelance Elasticsearch Architect) and Maarten Roosendaal (IT Architect at bol.com) have agreed to share their recent experience in data modeling for Elasticsearch. In their words:
At bol.com (http://bol.com/), a leading ecommerce platform in The Netherlands, we have done extensive research into what it would take to use ElasticSearch as the main search provider. We will explain the specific challenges and requirements of running an Elasticsearch cluster at bol.com (http://bol.com/)-scale, and show how we have used generated data to do performance and scalability tests on different ways to model a hierarchical data model into Elasticsearch. We will describe the benefits and drawbacks of the different data model options, and their consequences for the design of the index and search applications.
Maarten van Roosendaal of bol.com (http://bol.com/) and Anne Veling will jointly present.
We will be starting at 18:30, with some drinks and pizza. The talk will start around 19:00.
Hope to see you all there,
