    Thanks for sharing the link. I will review the material and post any follow up questions that I might have. Thanks again.

    Excellent question. There's a pretty comprehensive comparison of the two here:

    In my opinion, Solr is more mature but Elasticsearch has a few bleeding-edge features which might be worth the transition depending on what you're trying to do.

    Elasticsearch is more schemaless than Solr. It also supports nested documents and indexing multiple types in the same index, and cross-index searching.

    From a management standpoint, the latest versions of Solr (4.x) use Zookeeper ensembles for clustering whereas Elasticsearch has a somewhat magical "zen discovery" mode where most clustering and sharding concerns can be handled automatically.

    Continued here (with links):

    I am new to Elastic Search. How does it compare vs Solr? Why should one drop off Solr and move over to ES?

    A few people emailed with questions about the readme, so I prepared a screencast as an alternative guide for getting set up. Feel free to check it out here:

    So we're crossing our fingers that we'll be able to pull off a singalong demo by tomorrow. If you're interested in following along on your local machine, we'd appreciate if you could set things up ahead of time per the instructions here: That way we don't kill our office bandwidth with everyone downloading the installers at the same time.

    We're a Solr shop, but I'd like to find out about what else is out there.

    Neglected to realize I was logged in from my API account. ThingsToDo is me.
