Search Technologies specializes in the creation, implementation and support of data connectors enabling Amazon CloudSearch customers to index content from a wide range of repositories, both in the cloud and behind the firewall.
Through our involvement with the Amazon CloudSearch beta program, Search Technologies is already fully geared up to provide data connectors and implementation services to Amazon CloudSearch customers.
A full list of currently available connectors can be found here. We also develop custom Premium Data Connectors to fulfill unique requirements.
INDUSTRIAL-GRADE CONNECTORS FOR AMAZON CLOUDSEARCH
Premium Data Connectors are based on Search Technologies’ Aspire content processing framework and are available for a wide range of repositories including file systems (CIFS), relational databases, SharePoint 2010 and 2007, Documentum, RightNow, Atlassian Confluence, Wordpress, Web or intranet crawling and Amazon S3 Buckets. These are delivered under a services agreement to ensure that the customer's specific requirements are met in full.
CLOUD OR ENTERPRISE INSTALLATION
Aspire CloudSearch Premium Data Connectors can be securely installed and run from either the Amazon Cloud or from within the enterprise. This means that administrators need not compromise on either security or data transfer throughput. Installing on premise will securely bridge the gap between firewalled corporate content and the Amazon CloudSearch index. Installing in the Cloud will reduce data transfer latency for applications requiring very high performance. Hybrid scenarios are also supported.
Premium Data Connectors add value beyond the basic information plumbing tasks.
Premium Data Connectors ensure that document level security is respected through authentication and single sign-on mechanisms such as LDAP and NTLM. They handle complex security environments with nested permission groups and multiple authentication systems.
Connectors must be able to acquire data fast enough to satisfy the needs of the search application. At the same time, they must remain friendly towards the target repository. Our Premium Data Connectors provide the flexibility to achieve an optimum performance configuration for your specific environment.
Premium Data Connectors provide optional capabilities for content cleansing, metadata parsing, entity extraction and categorization. Whether carefully captured from the original source, or automatically derived using the latest techniques, metadata is a key element in the vast majority of successful search systems.
Aspire is a high performance content processing system specifically designed for search environments. With Aspire, search systems simply work better, improving user satisfaction, and driving increased ROI.
