Course Overview

The Elastic Stack is a powerful combination of tools for techniques such as distributed search, analytics, logging, and visualization of data. Elastic Stack 7.0 encompasses new features and capabilities that will enable you to find unique insights into analytics using these techniques.

Working with Elasticsearch is a four-day, hands-on course that provides students with a fundamental understanding of the stack components, features and benefits, and teaches them the skills required to use it efficiently to build powerful real-time data processing applications. The first few sections of the course teach students how to set up the stack by installing tools and exploring their basic configurations. Students will then get up to speed with using Elasticsearch for distributed searching and analytics, Logstash for logging, and Kibana for data visualization.  The course also explores the technique of creating custom plugins using Kibana and Beats, as well as coverage of the Elastic X-Pack, a useful extension for effective security and monitoring.  The course also includes helpful tips on how to use Elastic Cloud and deploy Elastic Stack in production environments

Students who attend this course will learn well versed with the fundamental Elastic Stack functionalities and the role of each component in the stack to solve different data processing problems.
