Presentation given on NYC software engineering group [http://www.meetup.nycsoftware.org/events/102941112/] on Feb 07 2013.
An overview of the implementation of ElasticSearch as the new search and browse engine at emusic.com.
This talk shows the challenges that the team faced while putting this amazing solution to work.
By replacing a proprietary legacy Oracle Endeca product to ElasticSearch emusic was able to reduce by 400% the number of nodes used by the search engine, response times were down by 200% and with an 80% increase of traffic load.
We serve over 5 million requests a day on our search servers.
