I am working on an application that needs to store huge transactions (2millions per day) and needs full-text search on it. I need to maintain at least 10years of data. Keeping performance and data integrity in mind can I use aws elasticsearch as a database for my project?

Elasticsearch is not a database! In the strict sense of the term, and should ideally not be used as such. However, nothing prevents you from doing it and according to the good folks at Elastic, they won't ever strive to try and make ES a real database. The main goal of ES is to be a fast and reliable search and analytics engine, and not a database.
