The experts in hosted search
Everytime you spin up an Elasticsearch cluster, you’re launching a
technology capable of indexing billions of rows in a fraction of a second.
The underlying technologies behind it all are the Elasticsearch API and
Apache Lucene, a free and
open-source information retrieval software library, originally written
completely in Java.
When you choose Bonsai, you’re not just dealing with people who understand the Elasticsearch API. The Bonsai team has been hosting Lucene-based search engines since 2009. Over the course of a decade, our team has built an easy, efficient way to manage and scale your search engines. Because your app’s search should “just work”, without requiring countless hours of configuration from your team.
The first prominent open source search library, Apache Lucene, becomes a top-level Apache project. Modern search is born.
The Apache Foundation releases the first version of Apache Solr, a search engine built on top of Lucene.
The Bonsai team launches Websolr, a hosted version of Solr. It is the first hosted version of Solr on the market. Champagne toasts ensue. 🍾🎉
Shay Banon releases Elasticsearch, a modern distributed search engine based on Lucene.
The Bonsai team launches the first hosted Elasticsearch service in the world. More champagne toasts ensue. 🍾🎉🍾🎉
Bonsai launches the first Heroku Elasticsearch Add-On and supports search for engineering teams at Harvard, Shopify, Salesforce, TrunkClub, and more.
Bonsai adds enterprise-grade integrations and support for Elasticsearch.
16,000+ active clusters on the Bonsai platform.
“We don't have dedicated in-house expertise for Elasticsearch, and the reason we've been able to avoid hiring that expertise is because of the support that we're getting with Bonsai. It's fantastic for us to be able to tap into that knowledge and get advice from them. No one knows Elasticsearch better than Bonsai. ”— Nathan Sprout, Head of Product, Action Sprout
