Can i elastic search as my primary store?

Is it a use case today to use elastic search as a primary store? basically
using it similar to mongodb? is that a use case the product is moving
towards or it is mostly just for search?

I have heard from the source, Do not use Elasticsearch as a data store. But
some people do and it works ok. I would recommend that you use the snapshot
and restore features. And back up your json file data so you can re-index
in case your index gets corrupted. And be careful upgrading, especially
between breaking versions.

I'd wait for 1.4 before considering it. There are lots of stability
improvements there. One thing to consider is that updates are quite costly
compared to Mongo/MySQL whatever.

Depends on how valuable your data is.

I wouldn't say Elasticsearch is quite there yet to be considered a reliable
primary data store, even with 1.4. Lots of work to be done on hardening
replication.
