Having played with both, I personally find http://www.searchify.com/ much better than bost Solr And ElasticSearch. At least based off the search results.



It looks like searchify is a hosted search solution, whereas Solr and ElasticSearch are distributions of search servers that can be deployed on your own hardware.

Technically Searchify is based on the open-sourced code from the previously proprietary IndexTank. So in theory you can run your own: https://github.com/linkedin/indextank-engine.

I'm skeptical about claims of different quality of relevancy results, since IndexTank/Searchify is also based on Lucene (looks like 3.0.1 in the canonical repo), and should share all the same fundamental relevancy and scoring functionality.

Yep, but hosting it is a pain.

It's actually heavily tweaked (this is what the IndexTank team has told me), and apparently contains components of Solr

There are hosted services for Solr and ElasticSearch, too. Such as fizx's and my own http://websolr.com and http://bonsai.io
