SeekStorm vs. self-hosted Open-source software

Lucene/Solr/Elasticsearch* are open-source software. While the software itself is free, any search based upon it is not. It requires infrastructure, engineers and time for setup and operation.

With SeekStorm you just integrate two lines of code into your product. The overall cost for search is much lower, and the time to market much shorter. There is no development, testing, deployment time and cost required. Because SeekStorm utilizes the infrastructure more efficiently, we can pass on the lower operational cost and give you more performance at a lower price.
