High Availability

SearchStax deployments are production ready. All are minimally three node clusters and front-ended with an elastic load balancer for auto-failover. In addition SearchStax offers multi-node, multi-zone Solr clusters with automatic failover for production applications with the most demanding uptime requirements.

Effortless Scaling

Unknown or high variance sizing - no problem. Grow your deployments to any size needed - easily add or remove nodes to handle data size or query volume increases or decreases. Achieve horizontal and vertical scalability through sharding and replication.

High Performance

Optimize your deployments for high performance by utilizing SearchStax Cloud Private. Since traffic is restricted to only approved exchanges, most network performance bottlenecks can be avoided.

Fully Automated Management

SearchStax enables you to host, deploy, and administer your Apache Solr search solution in the cloud. SearchStax offers on-demand and automated provisioning, scaling, backups, monitoring, alerting, comprehensive analytics and administrative tools.

APIs for Integration and Automation

SearchStax® provides APIs for supporting the creation, deletion and management of SearchStax deployments. These APIs can be accessed through any tool that assembles HTTP requests and dispatch them to a server. Among these would be the Python coreapi package, the Postman tool, and cURL.
