By default, Linkurious Enterprise ships with an embedded Elasticsearch instance, providing an out-of-the-box search feature. But this option is not optimized for very large or frequently updated graph databases because indexation can take time.
For those cases, Linkurious Enterprise 2.2 offers a new search option entirely relying on Neo4j’s native search capabilities. Compared to using Elasticsearch, you will enjoy:
- Built-in continuous indexation: you don’t need to install the neo4j-to-elasticsearch synchronization plugin to have your data available in the search instantly after being created in the database.
- Better scalability.
Change a few lines in your configuration file and you’re done!
We recommend using this solution if you have a frequently updated large database (100M+ nodes). We continue to support the Elasticsearch plugin for smaller databases.
