why elasticsearch?

Why you choose elasticsearch?

there are a lot of search engines, sphinx for example



Best Answer

There are many search engines but clearly elasticsearch is the newest and with the biggest support behind it. It also supports scalability and cloud environments which I'm not sure sphinx supports as well as advanced features ecommerce sites need.


That said, elastic search is just one provider and another provider can be just as easily written for sphinx or any other search engine. It shouldn't be such a hard implementation as it only requires to implement index and search methods that can parse search criteria classes.


thanks.
