Is Elasticsearch Compatible With Pagely?

Yes, Elasticsearch is compatible with us. This will allow you to leverage the ElasticPress WP Plugin to speed up certain aspects of your WordPress sites. This plugin is installed and configured by our savvy technical engineers on a per-site basis.

What Is Elasticsearch?

Elasticsearch is designed to enhance the search query process for larger WordPress databases, finding the requested relevant content much faster leveraging more customizable features. Content analysis performance can start to degrade as you scale a default WordPress MySQL engine. Elasticsearch solves those deficiencies by building its own index of your site’s database to create heightened flexibility and speed for querying complex search results.

In addition to indexing your searchable content, there are also three other big modules in play:

Once we’ve configured Elasticsearch for you, you’re able to toggle each module from within the WordPress dashboard.

How Can Elasticsearch Benefit Me?

We’ve seen WooCommerce sites specifically experience exponential (we’re talking 10x) performance gains on the product search feature particularly when switching that over to run via Elasticsearch. Search queries that took upwards of 14 seconds to run via MySQL downsized to sub-1 second search times. It’s very powerful tool that can make your visitors and business happy.

To enable this feature, you would simply file a support ticket from inside your Pagely Atomic dashboard and we’ll set up Elasticsearch on your behalf, free.

Which Plan Supports Elasticsearch?

The more content there is to keep indexed however, the more memory will be used. For best performance, we recommend running Elasticsearch on a Performance+ plan or greater. At this level, you’ll have the adequate amount of resources to operate at high quality with much more breathing room. Customers are always welcome to open a HelpDesk ticket for our Ops team to review your CPU/RAM usage and decide whether it will play nicely with our lower entry options.

Elasticsearch is just one of the many tools we make available to Pagely customers, with flexibility being a key component in our repertoire. Speak with our expert sales team to discuss further!
