About Elasticsearch

Elasticsearch is a distributed, open source search and analytics engine. Often utilized for enhancing 'full-text' search capabilities or analytic assessment, it converts raw data like log files into documents and stores them in a JSON-like object. Elasticsearch uses its own developer-friendly querying language known as Query DSL to provide lean access to document data not bound by schemas, columns, rows, or tables.
