Lucidworks Review

What is our primary use case?

Fusion have been used as a search engine for different resources: website, geo locations and relational database.

We have a single powerful search solution, which provides search capabilities for all our needs. We are able to solve complex operations, like searching for all locations within an area or building a relation between the relational database and a word document. 

What is most valuable?

  • Facets were one of the major features which provide powerful ways to filter search results.
  • A wide range of connectors allows you to utilize Fusion on different areas.
  • Ability to control how indexing and searching perform and controls how the scoring for search results is done, letting you customize the search experience according to your needs.
  • High availability¬†

One to three years.

Google Search Appliance and open source Solr.
