its not really fair to compare NRT of Solr to ElasticSearch.
ElasticSearch provides NRT for distributed indices as well... also when
doing heavy indexing Solr lacks real NRT.

The only main disadvantages of ElasticSearch are:
 * only one (main) committer
 * no autowarming

The nice thing with ES is that you can e.g. create lucene queries with
even high complexity as ES supports lucene-like query nesting via JSON.
Also when implementing server side stuff you can take advantage of full
lucene power.

Ah, before I forgot it: it is very important to test the software
yourself. Do not trust me or anybody else :), also the software should
fit to your environment, requirements + team!


PS: here is my different comparison:
