You Know, for Search
ElasticSearch is an open source, distributed, RESTful, search engine which is built on top of Lucene internally and enjoys all the features it provides.
All the features it has are listed in the home page, so no need to list them here again (with the extra splash, if I might add). ElasticSearch itself was born out of my frustration with the fact that there isn’t really a good, open source, solution for distributed search engine out there, which also combines what I expect of search engines after building Compass (and on that, I will blog later…).
I have been working on this for the past several months, pouring my search and distributed knowledge into this (and portions of my heart and time ;) ), Enjoy!.
