Hi and thanks in advance,
business case: I need to create an ecommerce frontend with ES using facets (aggregations) to replicate this functionality:
My idea is to consume ebay web services directly to ES in order to store data (ebay requirement) using ES as the primary data store for the website. Based on the fact eBay handles millions of products Im planning to use search server instead of a typical RDBMS
I have the following questions:
a- its possible to use ES as a primary data store?
b- Are Logtash or ES-HADOOP a solution to gather and include webservice data into Elasticsearch? (Solr provides Data Import Handler, but I cannot find a similar approach in ES).
c- if yes: Logtash or ES-HADOOP are fast enough to gather webservice information based on customer request in real time and display new information (including previously retrieved and indexed information) on frontend instantly?.
Thank you for any advice, im new in this area. brgds
