Using Elasticsearch to Enable Stronger Query Support in Cassandra

Relational Databases have been in use for decades, but with the advent of big data, there is a need to use NoSQL databases to handle the enormous amount of accumulating data. This leads to multiple challenges:

  • Many operations such as aggregations, grouping, and ordering cannot be performed with many NoSQL databases
  • Users are unable to use NoSQL data stores due to the restrictions they impose on executing complex and rich queries
  • The learning curve in using these databases is steep Cassandra is one such data store which has restricted query support.
  • However, there are search servers like Elasticsearch that enable extensive querying mechanisms over data indexes.

    This white paper provides an overview of Cassandra and Elasticsearch.
