Google Search Appliance (GSA) to Elasticsearch Migration Services

The Google Search Appliance (GSA) is a mature, reliable search engine that offers powerful enterprise capabilities. But as the Google Search Appliance is being sunset, it’s time to re-evaluate your search strategy. 

Elasticsearch and all the Elastic Stack components offer the flexibility and cost-savings of open source solutions while delivering the features and security of commercial search engines. 


As a Google Premier Partner and Elastic Implementation Partner, we have developed a methodology to ensure timeliness and success while avoiding pitfalls.  

  • Our customers with advanced search features on the GSA have relied on a custom assessment and migration that fulfills complex requirements.
  • For customers running mostly out-of-the-box GSA features for simple searches, a more straightforward migration can be effortless and efficient.

In any case, we will work with you to determine the optimal path for migrating from the Google Search Appliance to Elasticsearch. Read more about our migration methodology in this blog

Depending on your specific situation, the migration process can include any or all of the followings:

  • An assessment of your current search infrastructure to recommend the optimized setup for your Elasticsearch application
  • Detailed migration planning and implementation
  • Providing pre-built and custom data connectors for Elasticsearch
  • 24x7, dedicated managed and hosting services for your Elasticsearch application
  • Engine scoring and relevancy tuning to continuously improve your Elasticsearch application’s performance post-migration
