Amsterdam, The Netherlands - 02 April 2013
Elasticsearch, the company behind the popular real-time search and analytics open source project, today announced that Fog Creek has selected Elasticsearch to provide instant search capabilities within Kiln, its software development product. Kiln is designed to support and simplify development workflow for users searching more than 100,000 source code repositories. Elasticsearch is now a critical ingredient of Kiln, providing instant search for 300,000,000 requests across 40 billion lines of code to improve overall performance, reliability and user experience.
"We asked ourselves—how should we do search in today's world? How can we use search to make Kiln a better product? That's when we chose Elasticsearch. We've been able to create our own instant search for our users. Kiln searches as fast as our users can type…or as fast as they can think. That's made search a hallmark of the Kiln experience." — Kevin Gessner, Kiln team lead at Fog Creek Software
"Real-time search and analytics have become a critical component within applications in a wide range of markets—from software development to social networking—and we are excited that Fog Creek selected Elasticsearch to dramatically raise the bar of their customer's experience. While not every company needs massive scale today to support their search, we make it easy and cost effective for them to plan for it from day one."— Shay Banon, CTO and Creator of Elasticsearch
