Routing vs aliasing

Hello,

I'm planning a strategy for querying millions of docs :

What are the differences or advantages when using routing or aliasing?

Option 3: both.

Routing is "in which shard I want to send a doc or in which shards I want to run a search?"

Aliases are shortcuts to know in which indices/shards you want to query. It can be a simple list of indices and it may contain a routing key.

Alias with routing is a very good approach IMHO.

Option 1 - time based indexation + aliasing : explaned here => http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/en/elasticsearch/guide/current/time-based.html
Option 2 - custom document routing : Explaned here => http://www.elasticsearch.org/blog/customizing-your-document-routing/
