GetApp, a marketplace that helps businesses discover, compare, review and purchase business applications and development tools, today announced it has awarded a high rating (4.5 out of 5) to Qbox.io upon completion of a thorough review of its data exploration, enterprise search, and analytics services.
Qbox.io is a hosted solution for Elasticsearch, the open source distributed search engine developed for implementing internal site search and data exploration. Qbox.io makes it possible for virtually any application developer to utilize Elasticsearch to launch their own Elasticsearch clusters.
When developers want to implement internal site search in their sites, apps, and data sets, they rely on Elasticsearch or similar products but are often put off by the complexity of implementing these solutions. Qbox.io provides its users with a dedicated hosting solution for Elasticsearch that is as straightforward and uncomplicated as possible.
According to GetApp, Qbox.io offers a number of advantages over competing Elasticsearch products. The product supports both Amazon Web Services (AWS) and RackSpace and also includes support for multiple data centers spread across the world. As a main benefit of using the platform, GetApp identified that developers can avoid having to deal with Java Virtual Machine (JVM) heap size capacity planning as the product offers automatic configuration of cluster topology—including master nodes, data notes, and loan balancers—to automatically prevent split-brain situations.
In the GetApp review, Qbox.io achieved the following ratings:
Ease of Use: 4/5
“Using Qbox.io for hosted Elasticsearch allows developers to sidestep a number of the most common challenges associated with implementing internal search engines,” explains Stephanie Miles, GetApp reviewer.
