Running your Elasticsearch cluster on AWS for a distributed search setup is a challenge due to the multiple configurations required to enable indexing and searching. With the SearchBlox AMI, it is now easy to simply start multiple instances, setup the cluster within a few minutes and start your crawling/indexing process. Search queries can be performed against the search server immediately as the data sync process starts instantly due to the cluster setup. The SearchBlox AMI lets you setup a new website crawler against a website, index your files in your S3 bucket, create a twitter filter to find all tweets or use the API to index custom content.
Please follow the step-by-step instructions on our help center article to setup your AMI, configure the servers and index/search content without having to work through complicated startup scripts or challenging plugins to enable crawling.
