• Make Your Data FABulous, What's new in Elastic Stack 6.5 release?

    Another episode in Elastic IL meetup group! This time we our hosting Philipp Krenn, our very own Developer Advocate. Philipp is visiting Israel and it's a great opportunity for him to walk us through the Fast Accurate and Big (FAB) theory which, like the CAP theory for distributed systems, highlights very interesting concepts and tradeoffs in managing datastores and Elasticsearch specifically. Roy Zanbel, one of Elastic Cloud product managers, will talk about the latest and greatest features introduced as part of Elastic Stack 6.5 release which was anything but a "minor" release. We will talk and demo new features such as Infra and logs UI, Cross Cluster Replication, Kibana spaces, Canvas, Beats Central Management, APM distributed tracing and so much more.

  • Live Threat Hunting Demo, Glimpse into InfraOps

    Heya Elastic Fantastics, it's time for another Meetup! Talk 1: Dov Hershkovitch, PM for Logging and Metrics @ Elastic, will demonstrate our upcoming solutions around Operational Analytics. Details: Learn how to take your operational visibility to the next level with #Elastic. Using Docker / Kubernetes? Get an early preview of our new solutions which are in the late stages of development. See how your #logs, #metrics, and #APM data fits in a single new solution for better performance monitoring and faster troubleshooting across your IT infrastructure. Talk 2: James Spiteri, Cyber Security SA @ Elastic, will walk us through a live hacking scenario and hunt the threats by using some of Elastic's built in advanced capabilities. Details: Cybersecurity threats have become aggressively sophisticated. The data and speed required to detect targeted attacks has increased dramatically - the signature- and rule-based approaches simply don’t cut it anymore. The need for a cybersecurity solution that maintains and utilizes data effectively, whilst providing a simple yet powerful interface for security analysts to stop malicious users in their tracks is paramount for any security operation. In this talk, James will demonstrate the Elastic Stack’s ability to carry out threat hunting activities needed to keep pace with the threats of today and tomorrow. Agenda: 18:30 - 19:00 - Gathering 19:00 - 19:05 - Opening Words 19:05 - 19:35 - A glimpse to Elastic's upcoming solutions around operational analytics 19:45 - 20:30 - Live demo: Threat hunting with the Elastic Stack 20:30 - Networking

Eyal Posener: Eyal is a software engineer at Stratoscale. * Automotive Cyber Security cloud powered by Elasticsearch 5.4 and Docker Do you know how many lines of code contain modern cars? Do you know how many computers area in modern cars? Did you ever think of who is controlling your steering wheel? In our presentation we will answer these questions and will show you how we protect modern car infrastructure with extremely flexible and powerful cloud architecture based on Elastic Search 5.4 and Docker ecosystem.

Lev Ozeransky: Lev Ozeransky is seasoned Backend Developer and Solution Architect that was one of the first Elastic Search customers. Since then, he keeps digging into its evolving ecosystem and now succeeded to join it with Docker and its tools. * Monitor Your Services with the Elastic Stack "With microservices every outage is like a murder mystery" is a common complaint. But it doesn't have to be! This talk gives an overview on how to monitor Spring Boot applications, since they are increasingly popular for building microservices. We dive into: - System metrics: Keep track of network traffic and system load. - Application logs: Collect structured logs in a central location. - Uptime monitoring: Ping services and actively monitor their availability and response time. - Application metrics: Get the information from Boot's metrics and health via REST or JMX. - Request tracing: Use Sleuth to trace requests through a distributed system and Zipkin to show how long each call takes. And we will do all of that live, since it is so easy and much more interactive that way. Philipp Krenn: Philipp is part of the infrastructure team and a developer advocate at Elastic. He is frequently talking about full-text search, databases, operations, and security. Additionally, he is organizing multiple meetups in Vienna.
