Amazon Elasticsearch Service (Amazon ES) is both a search solution and a log monitoring solution. In this session, we address both. We build a front-end, PHP web server that provides a search experience on movie data as well as backend monitoring to send Apache web logs, syslogs, and application logs to Amazon ES. We tune the relevance for the search experience and build Kibana visualizations for the log data. In addition, we use security best practices and deploy everything into a VPC.
