Tag: Elasticsearch

Elasticsearch is open-source and NoSQL based distributed search engine which is written in JAVA.

It is designed for high-performance searches on large data.

For data storing it uses indexes which is the collection of different types of document and properties.

Compares to the relational database is very fast.

  • A relational database consists of –
    Databases -> Tables -> Row/Columns
  • But the Elasticsearch consists of –
    Indices -> Types -> Documents with properties

To communicate with it requires REST APIs.

It is supported by various languages – JAVA, PHP, Python, JavaScript, Node.js and many others.

In this tutorial, I am using XAMPP for its installation.
