Solr has the added complexity of zookeeper. ES isn't bad, but in an MT context you really have to layer a lot on top for security and configurability.

It's possible it's not MT and they just didn't write the facade APIs. That'd be pretty crazy.

My biggest complaint would be lack of plugin support.

To be fair, ZK is great at it's job, and that responsibility is something ES has had a lot of trouble replicating.

If you want to have consistency in a distributed system you need something like ZK. If ES does not have ZK it surely has something else, probably with different trade offs.
