Overall Satisfaction with Elasticsearch

We use Elasticsearch in our Web-Payment Fraud and Security Solution. We index every Http Request Response message of our customers' eBanking applications to analyze for fraud/malware/security threats. We then provide flexible and robust analytics on their data including free text search, reporting and real time data insights.
  • Free text search. Query String Query is totally awesome and allows complex search in real time.
  • Very scalable and highly configurable, there is no scalability problem we couldn't solve.
  • Aggregations are great for analytics and we utilize them in our proprietary reporting tool.
  • Aggregations scalability - elastic search doesn't do a very good job in protecting its cluster from bad queries. Circuit breakers are good, but to completely protect ourselves we had to implement our own mechanisms.
  • Solved major problems
We have used Solr. Elastic Search aggregations is what made us move to elastic search initially.
Great for storing big data, very scalable. Many great features.
