Should I use Alfresco's search or an enterprise search?

Question asked by walkman50 on Aug 27, 2010
Hi,

I have 3 requirements in my search. A search engine of choice must:

1. Search/index everything on our intranet
2. Search/index a select set of URLs of our choice
3. Search/index third party databases (we have credentials)

We are currently looking at a third party solution like Google Search Appliance or Autonomy Ultraseek. However, I understand Lucene is Alfresco's search engine. Would Lucene be able to handle these three requirements or would we need to use a higher-level search like Solr or on e of the solutions mentioned above. How easy would it be to integrate a third party solution like GSA?

Thanks,
Dave
