Enterprise Search EngineSolr is an enterprise search server that allows for many powerful query types: phrase queries, wildcard queries, proximity queries, range queries and more. It also includes an advanced DisMax query parser for high relevancy results from user-entered queries. Any field indexed by the Solr enterprise search server can be sorted upon.

Solr, the open source enterprise-grade search engine, so that the search results could be specifically tailored to the client's needs. Plone comes with search out-of-the-box, but does not easily allow for custom indexing rules, spell-checking or synonyms. Solr gave Six Feet Up the control we needed to make sure the search results were relevant. In order to integrate Solr with Plone, a new product called SolrIndex was created by Six Feet Up. This gives developers an easy way to replace out the standard search index with a Solr-backed one. SolrIndex has been a very popular add-on and Six Feet Up has been invited to present it at numerous speaking engagements.

In addition, Solr supports:

  • Optimized for High Volume Web Traffic
  • Standards Based Open Interfaces - XML,JSON and HTTP
  • Comprehensive HTML Administration Interfaces
