ABOUT ELASTICSEARCH

Elasticsearch is an open source (Apache 2 license), distributed, a RESTful search engine built on top of the Apache Lucene library.

Elasticsearch was introduced a few years after Solr. It offers a distributed, multitenant-capable, full-text search engine with an HTTP web interface (REST) and schema-free JSON documents. The official client libraries for Elasticsearch are available in Java, Groovy, PHP, Ruby, Perl, Python, .NET, and Javascript.

The distributed search engine includes indices that can be divided into shards, and each shard can have multiple replicas. Each Elasticsearch node can have one or more shards, and its engine also acts as a coordinator to delegate operations to the correct shard(s).

Elasticsearch is scalable with near real-time search. One of its key features is multi-tenancy.

The major feature list includes:
- Distributed search
- Multi-tenancy
- An analyzer chain
- Analytical search
- Grouping & aggregation

HOSTED ELASTICSEARCH SERVICES

Geek ElasticSearch supports 2 hosted ElasticSearch services are AWS ElasticSearch and Searchly. If you already have ElasticSearch service running on your server, it should work well with this service.

  • AWS Elasticsearch: Amazon Elasticsearch Service - a professional solution for those who are not familiar with installation and configuration of Elasticsearch service. This make it easy to deploy, operate, and scale Elasticsearch in the AWS Cloud.
  • Searchly.com: Searchly offers you another option of hosting cloud search with a reasonable price, you can select a plan that suits your needs.
  • Run your own ElasticSearch: If you don't want to pay for hosted ElasticSearch service provider, you absolutely can install and run ElasticSearch on your own server. But, of course, it requires you to have a knowledge of server :)

100
Documentation

Very nice. Easy to follow, although Amazon keeps changing things up so not all screenshots match perfectly, but I had no trouble setting up.
