Session SV302 from re:Invent 2013
Today's applications work across many different data assets - documents stored in Amazon S3, metadata stored in NoSQL data stores, catalogs and orders stored in relational database systems, raw files in filesystems, etc. Building a great search experience across all these disparate datasets and contexts can be daunting. Amazon CloudSearch provides simple, low-cost search, enabling your users to find the information they are looking for. In this session, we will show you how to integrate search with your application, including key areas such as data preparation, domain creation and configuration, data upload, integration of search UI, search performance and relevance tuning. We will cover search applications that are deployed for both desktop and mobile devices. Peter Simpkin from Elsevier provides a summary of their use of CloudSearch.
