From the webpage:

Elephant is an S3-backed key-value store with querying powered by Elastic Search. Your data is persisted on S3 as simple JSON documents, but you can instantly query it over HTTP.

Suddenly, your data becomes as durable as S3, as portable as JSON, and as queryable as HTTP. Enjoy!

i don’t recall seeing Elephant on the Database Landscape Map – February 2013. Do you?

Every database is thought, at least by its authors, to be different from all the others.

What dimensions would be the most useful ones for distinction/comparison?


I first saw this in Nat Torkington’s Four short links: 27 March 2013.
