Basho is implementing a much better search option based on distributed Solr (instead of relying on something in-house), due out this year with the 2.0 release. It's available for testing today.

(Full disclaimer: I work for Basho.)

"Based on distributed Solr" might be an over simplification. It uses Solr as its indexing engine, but really, that engine could be any single-node indexer... including single ES nodes. Basically, Yokozuna adds real grownup distributed systems computer science to the OSS distributed search space. http://docs.basho.com/riak/2.0.0beta1/dev/advanced/search/

To me, the Yokozuna "mediator" seems highly specific to Solr. It's not like you could swap out Solr for ES with just a little glue code, I think?

I'm building an internal geospatial product on the beta, anticipating the release. Great results so far.
