Subject Re: elastic search or other Lucene for HBase?

Hi Otis,

Other some basic tests on EC2, I'm afraid not.  I was initially
pondering using ElasticSearch as the front end REST and hooking in the
CRUD to HBase underneath, but since HBase is not my primary store (in
truth it is something I only get time to fire up and play with
occasionally at the moment) I normally do a MR load to HBase so would
go in under the ES layer.  For our use cases, custom indexes for
search, with 'lite' record content in a separate cluster to HBase is
an attractive option, leaving HBase free to handle reporting and full
record detail serving, annotating etc, and also allowing different
scaling based on the ultimate load.

>From my playing around with ES, it seems promising to act as the front
end layer - pretty good docs, nice API.  I have not hammered it with
any load though.

Sorry I can't be of more help,
