The main benefits of Elasticsearch are its powerful querying capabilities, its scalability, and the additional features it provides through Elasticsearch Xpack. Here are more details:
Powerful querying capabilities
Elasticsearch is a RESTful application that allows multiple searches such as structured, unstructured, geodata and metric then combines them together. The result found can be further analyzed and matched for key insights. Query data can be collected together and zoomed out to identify and determine important patterns and trends.
The system has the capability to derive answers instantly, enhancing the way users can relate better to data changes. It also offers BKD trees that can be used to store numeric and geo data together with column store used for all analytics. Its indexing feature assists users in leveraging and accessing their data faster.
Elasticsearch is also noted for its scalability which allows it to run on a single device like a laptop/PC as smoothly as it will run on multiple servers which handle petabytes of data. It can easily scale horizontally and allow users to handle a large number of events per second while automatically managing the distribution of indices and queries.
Additional features through Elasticsearch Xpack
Users can use the Elasticsearch Xpack tools to add extensive functionalities to the system such as being able to assign username and password to the cluster, performance monitoring, run machine learning jobs for establishing anomalies and more. Xpack can be easily installed which means it’s also easy to bring several improvements to the system like an increase in security and added features such as monitoring, graph exploration, reporting, alerting and machine learning.
