Subject Re: Solr is NoSQL database or not?
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2014 15:58:18 GMT

I said that:

"What are the main differences between ElasticSearch
and Solr that makes ElasticSearc a NoSQL store but not Solr."

because it is just a marketing term as Jack indicated after me. Also I said:

"The first link you provided includes ElasticSearch:
 as a Document Store"

I mean if you can add Solr to the wikipedia page but it is not a reference.
Because these are all "marketin terms" as like Big Data. You should
remember the definition of Big Data: "Data that is much more than you can
process with traditional methods" so it is not an exactly defined
definition. One can say Big Data for something but one can not. It is
similar to NoSQL.
