We are looking for a tool for matching product data. Googling has brought me to the ES site, but it's not clear if it's really what we're after.
As an example of what we're trying to achieve, we have just over a million product descriptions in a MySQL table. Given a product description (from another source), will ES do a good job of matching it correctly to the equivalent product in our existing data?
We have tried MySQL's built-in MATCH functions, and an "alternative"* full-text search engine but with very mixed and inconsistent results. I'm fully aware that perfect matching is impossible but am trying to find the next best thing.
If ES is a good candidate for this type of work, does anyone have any links to configurations for this type of setup?
*Unsure if I will get shot for mentioning other engines
