What is most valuable?

The scalability of this product is something that is very impressive and the performance is also very good.

What needs improvement?

I think the GUI part of the solution has the most room for improvement. Actually, we are using the free version. We do not use the plug-ins so we have to do some additional development ourselves to have the necessary access to the controls. We are not a heavy user, we just keep the logs and track… more»

What other advice do I have?

The advice I would give to others considering this solution is that you have to have someone knowledgeable managing the system. You have to know the needs, know how to manage queries, and understand the visualization. You have to have someone working on it and dedicated to it so that you can manage… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing to go in this direction, we actually checked with some of the database options like the JSON option and Mango. The Elasticsearch product was referred to us by a friend at another company as a better solution for our particular need. They are using the system. After some tests and… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

For the next project, we might buy the license, but we don't use it now. I don't know exactly what the license fee for Elasticsearch is currently.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I previously provided some activities with Splunk solutions. My colleague in another department also used Splunk.

What other advice do I have?

In general, we have many advantages from the features of Elasticsearch, but there are questions mostly about money, not about technical features, that are of concern. I… more»

What needs improvement?

In terms of product improvement, ratio aggregation is not supported in this solution. I can do aggregations, but taking a ratio of two metrics is not supported. That's a common use case that I have… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We are currently using the Open Source version, so we didn't need to offset any licensing. For now, it's just the cost of maintaining the server.

I haven't used other solutions.

What other advice do I have?

You can test the product for your use case on their user free trial, they offer a seven or 14-day free trial, You can put it up on cloud and just push your data to check if your use cases are being… more»

What is most valuable?

The special text processing features in this solution are very important for me. As a system, it is easy to use.

What needs improvement?

This is not a robust system, so in terms of resilience, they have to make some improvements. From time to time the system goes down and we have to start again, after adjusting some configuration parameters. Technical support can be… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not use another solution prior to this one.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody considering this solution is that it is an easy to use tool, but for work that is not complex. If on the other hand, the work is more complex, with more data and perhaps a clustering environment, then they may have to… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options before choosing this solution, but due to issues with stability, I'm now trying out PostgreSQL for comparison.
