AWS re:Invent 2018: Search at Nike with Amazon Elasticsearch Service (ANT203)

Published on Dec 04, 2018

Amazon Elasticsearch Service (Amazon ES) provides powerful, natural-language-based search features and a rich API to enable relevant search for applications like ecommerce, data lakes, and your application data. Nike upgraded the search engines for its web properties, including the Nike online store, standardizing on Amazon ES for these mission-critical workloads. With Amazon ES, Nike can focus on its core mission—enabling customers to find and purchase its products—without worrying about the hassle of deploying and scaling hardware, deploying Elasticsearch, configuring and securing its clusters, upgrading with security patches, or any of the low-value, operational tasks necessary to keep Elasticsearch maintained. Come to this session to learn the factors that Nike used in choosing Amazon ES. Get an overview of its architecture, and hear about the results of its migration.
