There are some additional reasons to use folders (web URLs are
hierarchical, file system are).

Well, unfortunately that's not always true, depending on the use case.
Otherwise, Jackrabbit would be a lot simpler...

Compared to Elasticsearch. Well as far as I know Elasticsearch is about
search, and lacks typical "database" features like cross-document
transactions. MongoDB and other NoSQL storage are probably closer to a
regular database, but also typically lacks that (plus fulltext search).
Compared to relational databases, Jackrabbit has fulltext and mixed
(property and fulltext) queries, unstructured / semi-structured content.

And of course, Jackrabbit is open source :-)
