The gold standard for text-based search
Score 10 out of 101
Overall Satisfaction with Elasticsearch
We use Elasticsearch to power a web search engine that allows users of our web platform to search for products, content, and more. With Elasticsearch we were able to quickly and effectively develop and deploy a search solution that is fast, scalable, and was a breeze for our developers to implement.
- Quick to implement a powerful, effective search product that makes our user happy
- Cheap, fast, and scalable - an ideal component of our stack
As far as we are concerned, Elasticsearch is the gold standard and we have barely evaluated any alternatives. You could consider it an alternative to a relational or NoSQL database, so in cases where those suffice, you don't need Elasticsearch. But if you want powerful text-based search capabilities across large data sets, Elasticsearch is the way to go.
Elasticsearch is the gold standard for text-based search. Across large data sets it performs admirably, and we will certainly make it our first choice search solution in the future. For a use case where needs are simple and regular database queries might suffice, Elasticsearch may or may not provide any benefits.
