Elastic Search and GSA comparision


(lalit mishra) #1

Hi All,
In one of our project we are planning to have xml document indexed and we
are comparing Elastic Search and Google Search Appliance. We would only be
interested in indexing documents as currently we are receiving the documents
in xml formats and we would not be crawling any web pages or documentum or
sharepoint location, Can any one help me in guiding which one should be
better, We are already aware of GSA being paid software which comes along
with hardware,
If I use Elastic search on shared NFS location do we still receive Stale NFS
file error due to underline Lucene been used(used to get this error while
using Compass) ?

Thanks,
Lalit

Heya,

Can't properly compare to GSA, since I don't know it enough. Regarding
NFS, there is no need to use NFS when using elasticsearch, its distributed
and can store and recover its state from the local storage of each node.
