Now my Macbook has multiple screens!
I had a chance to benchmark two major searching engines, ElasticSearch and Apache Solr.
My first impression was that ES was easy to understand and build an environment while Solr was flexible enough to suit to any use cases.
Regarding performance, it depends on the use case of course, in my case, ES was faster in general search such as keywords AND/OR query. In faceting, both engine showed similar performance. Since query syntax is completely different between them, learning cost(eg.time) is considerable..
Now I’m playing with Hadoop, an open source big data solution, struggling with the lack of concrete information.
Best wishes for a successful and rewarding 2017!!
This is a hen, though…I bought my friend 19 years ago when I travelled in New Zealand.
