Across our portfolio, we have and will continue developing innovative capabilities in this area, enabling our customers to deliver AI-driven and intelligent search.
Benefits of Elasticsearch
Sophisticated search capabilities: including real-time indexing, geosearch, pattern search, and search on machine data.
High Degree of Control: including direct control of relevance ranking, query processing, and indexing.
Open Source: provides assurance of future continuity as well as the ability to change or fix any aspect of the search engine as required.
Scale-up: no limits on size of documents or number of items indexed; pay as you grow. If you are hitting the limits of SharePoint search, you can use Elasticsearch to supplement your existing search and present users with a single unified result set through SmartHub.
Fast answers: Elasticsearch is noted for quick response times and is notably faster than SharePoint search.
Managed Service (with Elastic Cloud): results in lower cost and less work by eliminating the need to deal with servers, software updates, backups, etc. Elastic Cloud is available on Amazon Web Services and on the Google Cloud Platform.
