Elasticsearch vs solbase


(T Vinod Gupta) #1

Hi,
I did a prototype to store documents in elasticsearch and i was pretty
happy with the experience, although there was some learning curve. but i
recently got to know about solbase and how it scales really well since it
uses hbase as a base. we already have an installation of hbase that we use
super heavily for our production data. so solbase can really leverage the
infrastructure we have.

im wondering what your thoughts are on elasticsearch vs solbase. i have not
even done a hello world in solbase yet, so im little tentative. i got a
feedback from a elasticsearch user that it can be pain to migrate files and
such.
i would really appreciate some insightful inputs.

thanks

Hi,

I think the main difference is that ES has a growing community and has been
used in some very large installations (see
https://twitter.com/#!/otisg/status/170290369416790017 for example), while
Solbase has no community and includes a modified version of Lucene/Solr.
But the nice thing about Solbase is that I believe replication piggybacks
on HDFS/HBase and index optimization and segment merges don't exist (but
HBase compactions do!)
