Install and Integrate Elasticsearch with Drupal
"In this tutorial I am going to look at the possibility of using Drupal 7 as a content management system that powers another high performance application. To illustrate the latter, I will use the Silex PHP microframework and Elasticsearch as the data source. The goal is to create a proof of concept, demonstrating using these three technologies together."

"User expertise exists on two levels. If you’re an avid photographer, your domain expertise in photography will be quite high: that is, you’ll be familiar with the terms and techniques of the trade. Each of us is likely a domain expert in a few areas, and a complete novice in others. A second aspect is technical expertise. Familiarity with how computers, the internet, and search engines work significantly impacts how users seek information."
