Azure Search vs Found Elasticsearch: What are the differences?

Azure Search: Search-as-a-service for web and mobile app development. Azure Search makes it easy to add powerful and sophisticated search capabilities to your website or application. Quickly and easily tune search results and construct rich, fine-tuned ranking models to tie search results to business goals. Reliable throughput and storage provide fast search indexing and querying to support time-sensitive search scenarios; Found Elasticsearch: Hosted Elasticsearch. Create your own fully managed and hosted Elasticsearch cluster. You get a dedicated cluster with reserved memory, giving you predictable performance. There are no arbitrary limits on how many indexes or documents you can store. Scale your clusters as and when needed, without any downtime.

Azure Search and Found Elasticsearch can be primarily classified as "Search as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by Azure Search are:

  • Powerful, reliable performance
  • Easily tune search indices to meet business goals
  • Scale out simply

On the other hand, Found Elasticsearch provides the following key features:

  • Hosted and managed: You get your own fully hosted and managed Elasticsearch cluster. No need to host and maintain your own costly search infrastructure.
  • Reserved Memory and storage: Your clusters get reserved memory and storage. No shared clusters and no arbitrary limits on how many indexes or documents you can store.
  • Scalable and flexible: Start small, grow big. You can scale your cluster as and when needed, without any downtime. There are several Elasticsearch versions to choose from, and upgrading is easier than ever.

          Reviews of Azure Search and Found Elasticsearch
          Review ofFound ElasticsearchFound Elasticsearch

          We use found.no to host our elasticsearch index for ninya.io[1].

          When we were looking for an elasticsearch provider we compared a couple of different services. One thing that we considered as a big advantage over other elasticsearch provider is the simple pricing. Most other elasticsearch provider use document limits whereas found.no uses storage quota which makes more sense to us.

          found.no supports all elasticsearch features and has been very reliable for us. They also have an amazing customer support that helped us to resole issues (on our end) quickly when we didn't know how to help ourselves.

          Getting started with found.no was a piece of cake. There's everything you need right at your dashboard. They even generate examples for exactly your account which is really helpful to get newcomers started.

          For everything else there is great documentation right on there website[2]. I'd also like to recommend their blog[3] that is full of technical articles not necessarily scoped to their service but also elasticsearch in general.
