What our customers are saying:
Once we dug into the numbers and understood what the effort was in time and dollars to stand up and support our own Solr infrastructure for our Sitecore deployment, it was a no-brainer to go with Measured Search. SearchStax made it very straightforward to deploy Solr in AWS and it seamlessly integrated with Sitecore. We were able to move light years faster and at a lower overall cost. I would highly recommend Measured Search and SearchStax to other companies looking for a complete search solution for their Sitecore deployment.
