Are there any issues with running the database engine only, even if you have millions of users?
If you don't need search capabilities and size your db correctly, any reason not to simplify and avoid ES?

I don't think we've tested millions running db search - but the only issue I can think of for normal usage would be the User page in the UI since we’ll be paginating over lots of users.
This should work ok - but pagination tends to slow way down as you get into higher pages,.
One can always flip on Elastic and run an index, so not much harm in trying it.
