Running ElasticSearch in a cluster on Azure

Running ElasticSearch in a cluster on Azure | mytopic | Scoop.it

 I have been brewing on this post for some days now and the excitement of the presentation to come motivated me to finish it. We use ElasticSearch at my day job at eBay and the product is also a key ingredient in my ELMAH in the cloud project elmah.io. In this post I will share my experiences setting up ElasticSearch in a clustered setup of virtual machines, running on Windows Azure. Disclamer: this is in no way an official guide on how to setup ElasticSearch in a cluster. My experience with replication in ElasticSearch is pretty limited, and I only just now found out how virtual networks work in Windows Azure. Use this guide for inspiration and I would love to get some feedback on the approach used.

If you don’t have access to Azure, there’s a free trial available from the frontpage: http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/free-trial/. You will get 30 days of Azure with a maximum of $200 worth of services. Pricing on Azure has always been a nightmare, but $200 should do just fine in order to play around with a couple of VMs. When signed up and in, start by creating a new virtual network:

Design pattern: MSMQ, WCF and IIS

MSMQ simply provides wonderful capabilities when it comes to building asynchronous messaging based applications. You typically run into situations where two applications exchange messages through a queue – one application sends messages to a known MSMQ destination and the other application “listens” to this queue and picks messages up as and when they arrive.
