NoSQL Data Store
Enonic XP ships with a unique and powerful document-oriented data storage built on the shoulders of popular search engine Elasticsearch.
When designing XP, we carefully evaluated existing and popular technologies from Git, file systems, object storage, SQL, the Java Content Repository, and various search and NoSQL solutions. However, we were unable to find any single solution that supported our requirements to functionality, performance, simplicity and technology. So, we decided to build our own solution.
The result is now a central part of Enonic XP, called the "Data store".
The XP Data store enables you to persist, index, query and access data of virtually any kind, fast and efficiently. Below is a highlight of the capabilities provided:
Create multiple Repositories within a single XP deployment
Store documents aka Nodes hierarchically, no schema required
Nodes contain key-value entries called Properties
Query your data using an SQL inspired Query language
Use Aggregations to access powerful statistics on your data
Visualize your search results with Highlighting
Versions are created automatically for every modification of a node
Supports Access Control down to a single document
Git inspired Branches enable you to stage and promote your data
Editors eliminate the need for update statements
Data persisted in XP can be managed through various applications and interfaces, but common relevant actions are:
snapshot and restore to rollback the entire system to a point in time
exporting and importing nodes and tree structures using a human readable format
dumping and loading your entire storage.
backing up your data safely.
