"GSA to ElasticSearch: a Migration Story" by Bart van den Burg

When we learned that Google was going to discontinue GSA after 2017, we needed to look for an alternative solution to offer search on our platform. One of the reasons we chose the GSA was because of the good name Google has when it comes to search, which helped us in sales, but given the structured data that we have, a document search wasn't actually the most ideal.

We run a B2B e-commerce platform for fashion wholesale, and our customers should be able to easily find products that they can order. Where in B2C products are generally available to everyone, within B2B there are a lot more restrictions to it. In the States they will see a different list of products from what they see in the Netherlands. All this needs to be part of our search solution.

In this talk I will tell about:

• How we approached selecting the new solution
• What our migration path looked like
• How we did a seamless cut over
• What challenges we ran in to along the way and how we solved them


I started working as a professional PHP developer 7 years ago after having been a hobbyist for more than 10. Two years ago I joined a start up, Neocles, where I currently work. I started as a AngularJS frontender, but got quickly involved in the C# backend, and am now the lead developer. I decided to lead the project on migration to Elastic Search because it has some unique challenges that I felt I could learn a lot from.

"Monitor your Containers with the Elastic Stack" by Monica Sarbu


Containers as well as orchestration systems like Kubernetes are quickly gaining popularity as the prefered tools for deploying and running microservices. While being easier to deploy and isolate, containerized applications are creating new challenges for the logging and monitoring systems.

One popular solution for logging and monitoring is the Elastic Stack composed of Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana, and Beats. This talk shows you how to use the Elastic Stack, and in particular the Beats lightweight shippers, to collect logs and metrics from your containers.

The session includes details about how to:

• fetch the logs of the containers with Filebeat
• collect container metrics with Metricbeat
• monitor the network traffic exchanged between containers with Packetbeat
• automatically discover metadata from Docker containers
• visualize the collected data with predefined Kibana dashboards
• scaling Logstash deployments


Monica is the creator of the Packetbeat open source project, the first Beat of the Elastic Beats Platform and the team lead of the Beats team inside Elastic. She gained extensive experience in application monitoring by working in the last 10 years on a complete monitoring and troubleshooting solution for VoIP networks that is currently used by big players in the Telecom space.
