Overview of this book

Building enterprise-grade distributed applications and executing systematic search operations call for a strong understanding of Elasticsearch and expertise in using its core APIs and latest features. This book will help you master the advanced functionalities of Elasticsearch and understand how you can develop a sophisticated, real-time search engine confidently. In addition to this, you'll also learn to run machine learning jobs in Elasticsearch to speed up routine tasks. You'll get started by learning to use Elasticsearch features on Hadoop and Spark and make search results faster, thereby improving the speed of query results and enhancing the customer experience. You'll then get up to speed with performing analytics by building a metrics pipeline, defining queries, and using Kibana for intuitive visualizations that help provide decision-makers with better insights. The book will later guide you through using Logstash with examples to collect, parse, and enrich logs before indexing them in Elasticsearch. By the end of this book, you will have comprehensive knowledge of advanced topics such as Apache Spark support, machine learning using Elasticsearch and scikit-learn, and real-time analytics, along with the expertise you need to increase business productivity, perform analytics, and get the very best out of Elasticsearch.

Overview of ES-Hadoop

As we mentioned, the ES-Hadoop feature contains two major areas: distributed computing and distributed storage. The main goal of ES-Hadoop is to seamlessly connect Elasticsearch and Hadoop so that they can benefit each other with distributed computing, distributed storage, searching, analytics, visualization, and more. We can import Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) data to Elasticsearch for search and analysis, and export the Elastisearch data to HDFS for snapshot and restore. ES-Hadoop fully supports the Spark framework, including Spark, Hive, Pig, Storm, Cascading, and sure, the standard MapReduce. Let's take a look at the data flow between Elasticsearch, ES-Hadoop, and components in the Hadoop ecosystem, as shown in the following screenshot:

In short, we can think of ES-Hadoop as a data bridge between Elasticsearch and the Hadoop big data ecosystem...
