Elasticsearch SQL is an X-Pack component that allows SQL-like queries to be executed in real-time against Elasticsearch. Whether using the REST interface, command-line or JDBC, any client can use SQL to search and aggregate data natively inside Elasticsearch. One can think of Elasticsearch SQL as a translator, one that understands both SQL and Elasticsearch and makes it easy to read and process data in real-time, at scale by leveraging Elasticsearch capabilities.
