ES instead of Cassandra


(Tim Uckun) #1

Is ES a suitable replacement for Cassandra for an analytics platform? I
need high speed data ingestion, time series analysis, rollups and
aggregations etc. Cassandra is used for this kind of task often but it
seems to me ES might be a suitable if not better replacement.

Cheers.

I don't know if it could be a replacement for Cassandra but for sure it could be an analytic platform!

I would say: just give it a try! It's easy enough to start playing with your data!

Hi Tim,

It depends on the details - "analytics platform" is a bit too abstract.
For what it's worth, we run a big performance monitoring and search
analytics service (see signature) on top of HBase as persistent data store.
This data store layer is pluggable, so we plugged in Solr and then
Elasticsearch at one point. Both could handle the job, but we had to use
all kinds of tricks to make them handle north of 100K data points per
second we received back when we did this. This is just our use case.
Unfortunately, nobody can provide a definite answer without knowing a ton
of details.
