Elasticsearch vs Shopify: What are the differences?
Developers describe Elasticsearch as "Open Source, Distributed, RESTful Search Engine". Elasticsearch is a distributed, RESTful search and analytics engine capable of storing data and searching it in near real time. Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats and Logstash are the Elastic Stack (sometimes called the ELK Stack). On the other hand, Shopify is detailed as "Quickly and easily create a beautiful online store with Shopify". Shopify powers tens of thousands of online retailers including General Electric, Amnesty International, CrossFit, Tesla Motors, Encyclopaedia Britannica, Foo Fighters, GitHub, and more. Our platform allows users to easily and quickly create their own online store without all the technical work involved in developing their own website, or the huge expense of having someone else build it. Shopify lets merchants manage all aspects of their shops: uploading products, changing the design, accepting credit card orders, and viewing their incoming orders and completed transactions.
Elasticsearch can be classified as a tool in the "Search as a Service" category, while Shopify is grouped under "Ecommerce".
Some of the features offered by Elasticsearch are:
- Distributed and Highly Available Search Engine.
- Multi Tenant with Multi Types.
- Various set of APIs including RESTful
On the other hand, Shopify provides the following key features:
- Choose from 100+ professional themes
- Customize the look of your online store
- Start accepting orders in minutes
"Powerful api" is the top reason why over 310 developers like Elasticsearch, while over 14 developers mention "Affordable yet comprehensive" as the leading cause for choosing Shopify.
Elasticsearch is an open source tool with 42.4K GitHub stars and 14.2K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Elasticsearch's open source repository on GitHub.
