following on from the "who's in production with elastic search" I thought it
may be worth also having a "who's evaluating / incorporating elastic search"
email thread. I'll go first!
Here at the Online Technology Group, within Sony Computer Entertainment
Europe (or Playstation), I'm the Tech Lead on an internal middleware
solution which provides services (SaaS) to online games.
Our architecture is pretty similar to the diagram here:
http://www.udidahan.com/2009/12/09/clarified-cqrs/ Although we use Cassandra
as a datastore rather than a relational database. We are then using elastic
search for all queries for any lists of items. Singular items hit our
services directly through to Cassandra.
We're currently not in production, but are going to be performing some
pretty serious load testing in the coming weeks which I'll be sure to let
you know about. We also have some pretty cool games as potential internal
customers for the project.
I would like to thank Shay and eveyone involved in elastic search. I was
initially intending to wrap Lucene in a similar way myself. Elastic search
means I don't have to so my own services have had a much higher velocity as

third party software.
