Elasticsearch SQL Vs Open Distro SQL plugin

Is Open Distro SQL plugin similar to Elasticsearch SQL? I have just started exploring ES. I want to know which one to start with!

Hi mannepk85, they’re completely different implementations that obviously serve similar user needs. I’d encourage you to do some digging into both and see which one is the better fit for you. Elasticsearch SQL is part of the “default” distribution and governed by a commercial license. The Open Distro for Elasticsearch SQL plugin is Apache 2.0.
