Elastic Search

This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

Over the past year we have seen a gradual uptake in the adoption of Elastic Search as an open source search platform. It is an extensible, multi-tenanted, and horizontally scalable search solution based on Apache Lucene. It allows complex data structures to be indexed and retrieved through a JSON based REST API. It provides an elegant model of operation with automatic discovery of peers in a cluster, failover, and replication. Elastic Search can be extended with a plugin system that allows adding new functionality and changing existing behavior. The community around this tool is quite vibrant as illustrated by the number of client libraries available in languages like Java, C#, Ruby, and JavaScript.
