Using only ES or combined combined with Mongodb or Cassandra


(HansPeterSloot) #1

Hi,

While reading and watching a lot of material about elasticsearch I
frequently noticed that EE is often
combined with other NoSql products like Mongodb or Cassandra.
That suprised me.

Can someone shed some light on the disadvantage of only using ES?
And what are the advantages of using a combination?

Regards Hans

Some people simply feel more comfortable using some of these other
technologies. Others may really have different access patterns, some of
which ES may not handle well (this is theory - in our work with many, many
companies using ES I've seen many cases of this double-storage approach,
but I don't recall a concrete example of this being required because of a
different access pattern ES cannot handle).

Some of the cons of having both:

  • keeping them in sync
  • duplicate data
  • more hardware needed
  • more work to maintain
  • more $$$
