Overall Satisfaction with Elasticsearch

It is used in our custom software application for advanced searching and filtering capabilities for our users.
  • It allows extremely fast search and filtering on large datasets
  • It has a very powerful aggregation engine that can allow for tons of customizable analytics and reports.
  • The documentation could be a bit more detailed and have more examples, especially for advanced functionality.
  • The ability to update/change existing live field mappings would be nice.
  • The ingest pipeline structure is a bit more complicated and confusing than previous implementations for using things like attachment plug-ins.
  • It has allowed fast searching on large datasets which allow our customers to conduct business in a timely and simple manner.
Power and simplicity along with performance.
It is well suited for anything involving large data - searching, filtering, aggregations, analytics, reporting, etc.
