GoTime has ElasticSearch in production. We are currently using it to
index pageview analytics as a trial while we prepare other code that
Our current index has 6.5 million documents with around 25 fields
each. Future plans are for multiple indices each with 4-5 million
complex nested documents.
We have 3 c1.xlarge instances on ec2 running both cassandra and
elasticsearch. Cpu usage is very low but load stays around the 6-8
range, so we are using the 8-core instances for now. We are using the
S3 gateway but haven't had any restore scenarios yet. In our testing,
recovery of large indices from S3 has not been promising, so we are
looking forward to the reuse of work directories feature that is being
worked on. To be fair, the recovery testing was done with 0.7.2, and I
understand the gateway format has changed since then.
Another feature that we're looking forward to is the enhanced facet
support, especially histogram facets.
Overall I've been very impressed with ElasticSearch and the pace of
development. Keep up the good work Shay!

Who has Elastic Search in production or plans to deploy it into
production soon? Any Web 2.0 companies?
How many documents do you have in the index? How large are each
document? How many nodes are you running?
