    Swiftype review by Elizabeth G.
    "Solid product, Excellent Support: Set-up and install was quick and easy, even for multiple sites. Customized result rankings are a key feature for us (although if you have a ton of results, it can be a little tedious to go through) that is also easy to use, along with the ability to create synonym sets for various search terms. Many of our search terms have variations or are easily misspelled, so the synonym set has greatly reduced the number of empty searches that users were experiencing."

    Algolia review by Olaf D.
    "Fast search service, easy to use at very reasonable price: It's easy to use and plenty of SDKs are provided so there's is one for everyone. Setup and configuration are done through a clear dashboard which also offers great insights into search performance. Search results are being delivered instantaneously. They're so fast that using a search index for search query completion is working perfectly. The pricing is very reasonable. For testing and small volume sites, there is even a free tier. Support also is great. The turnaround for a fix in one of the provided SDKs was less than 24h."

    Elasticsearch review by Varun D.
    "Probably the best database for search: Database exposed as a REST service! Seriously. Working with elasticsearch is so easy and fantastic experience. You get so many features out of the box - like full text search, document custom scoring, suggestions, results highlighting etc. And that's just tip of the iceberg. There are so many pluging like logstash and kibana for displaying metrics and logging. Also it is highly scalable."

With just a few lines of code I'm able to send a massive amount of documents & have them indexed in a short period of time. The sending process is quick and easy & I have yet to experience any downtime."

    SearchSpring review by Todd H.
    "Never Underestimate the Power of Response Time in Customer Service.: Most IT Vendors are a several day long process of getting something fixed. The running joke is that 24/7 support actually means they will respond within 24 hours, and sometime in the next seven days, they might just fix your problem. NOT SEARCHSPRING. I am literally in a situation where their response to my needs is SO FAST, I don't even have my ducks in a row. Evan is like having Barry Allen do support. There is a blur, and then it is done before you can say...wait...that's fixed?"

Google makes it super easy and convenient to have people jump in when it works best for them. It is a very handy and simple way to share things among people. Google cloud search makes it easy for us to search things as a group without actually being in person together. I enjoy the fact that I can see what other people are doing to make sure that things are getting done."

    FishEye review by Administrator in Internet
    "Invaluable SVN-supporting code browser: Being able to track changes back years and thousands of revisions in a simple manner is absolutely invaluable. Integration between FishEye and Jira is useful, being able to link revisions to issues and vice-versa helps when trying to see why a change was made at a future date. Paired with a good IDE, FishEye fits practically all of my requirements from a developer standpoint. Whether providing other team members with the tools to prove that it was you who made the erroneous change is a good idea is an exercise for the reader!"

The growing community and support over the slack are impressive. Cross platform security awareness and seamless search experience. Rest api helps in custom application integration.

    Apache Lucene review by Michael G.
    "Lucene (via SOLR and Elasticsearch) in an Academic Library: Full text indexing and faceting controls are Lucene's true strength. You can easily index data based on a schema and immediately search across the whole index with blazing speeds. Sharding allowed for the index to be load balanced and mirrored across multiple back end nodes, providing a fault-tolerant search system. The buy-in from administrators was fairly easy as many of the top federated search engines within the academic library space are powered in some way by Lucene."

    Azure Search review by Brian M.
    "Great Search Tool, can be integrated into just about anything, but pricey.: Microsoft really pulled out a winner with this one. The way you index content can be programmatically done or manually in the portal, but the shining star is how you consume the search results once that data is indexed. It is insanely fast. Faster than I expected. The features like dynamic facets and dynamic scoring profiles are hard to beat."
