Can we store audio/video data

(Amit) #1


In Hadoop we can store audio, video as well as images. Can we store these in ES???

To some degrees yes but I would not do that.
Why do you want to do this?

I'd keep blobs in Hadoop or wherever...

In Hadoop we can store any kind of data and we can integrated ES with Hadoop. So want to know how it would work???

I'd ask this question in

Elasticsearch required all documents that are indexed to be in JSON format. It is possible to add binary data to a JSON document, but this means that the binary content will need to be encoded, e.g. using a base64 encoding, which is not very efficient. As David points out it is therefore common to store binary content outside Elasticsearch.

Our ES-Hadoop Connector makes it possible to move data between Elasticsearch and Hadoop.
