Indices vs. Types

  • ElasticSearch allows multiple types in the same index
  • Shards are allocated per index not per type
  • Mapping must not conflict within an Index not within a Type
  • Smaller shards are easier to distribute evenly between nodes
  • Aliases and multi-index search facilitates in searching across multiple indexes
  • Replicas help improving query performance by distributing data retrieval
