Overall Satisfaction with Elasticsearch

We use Elasticsearch to efficiently search large pools of data. Elasticsearch gives us the ability to have blazing fast searches even when doing partial text matches on multiple fields.
  • The best solution we've found for blazing fast searches, especially text-based.
  • Easy to add nodes for data redundancy.
  • Good documentation makes getting up and running easy.
  • I found the learning curve fairly difficult having a SQL background.
  • Full-text searches on certain tables have dropped by up to 98%. Searches that used to take upwards of 45 seconds to complete now take a fraction of a second. From a users perspective.
  • Taking the computational load off our servers has allowed us to decrease the number of Oracle cores we have saving us a lot of money in license fees.
If you are in a scenario where you are constantly trying to optimize queries to get better performance from your database searches, Elasticsearch is probably a product worth trying out. With the amount of data we have, doing text searches via SQL isn't even an option. If you aren't struggling with getting reasonably fast queries getting Elasticsearch up probably isn't going to be worth the hassle.
