Yii2 Elastic Search vs Yii2 in built search function

Can anyone describes the performance difference between Yii2 elastic search and Yii2 in-built search?

Where I have to use elastic search and where I can use normal Yii2 search? and why???

Thanks in advance…!!


yii2’s builtin search uses mysql/postgresql which is not designed for full-text search, elastic search would definitely be much efficient in terms of performance

Thanks again for your reply
