THE VERSATILITY OF SQL IN A FULL-FEATURED, FULL-TEXT SEARCH ENGINE SOFTWARE PLATFORM
Thunderstone is the core technology for all Thunderstone products. It is one of the only search engine software platforms available with the fully-integrated structure of an SQL relational database (RDBMS) that intelligently queries and manages databases containing natural language text, standard data types, geographic information, images, video, audio, and other payload data. Thunderstone is also versatile enough to be customized for use as a content management, e-commerce, portal, or knowledge management system.
THE POWER OF STRUCTURED AND UNSTRUCTURED SEARCH
Thunderstone is designed for applications that require both structured and unstructured types of searching (such as online publishing, interactive catalogs, classified advertising, digital asset management, intelligence and web searching). Because Thunderstone is based on the versatility of open standard SQL as its application development model, it offers a number of advantages for addressing a wide range of complicated search requirements. No matter the data structure, Thunderstone can handle it.
Thunderstone is the only relational database that can store and search text documents of unlimited size within standard database tables. Full-featured scripting language allows you to quickly build your own native or rich web-based application. If help is needed in application building, Thunderstone has experienced consultants available and ready to assist.
There is no inherent limit to the number of records or documents Thunderstone can search. It is routinely used on the most heavily trafficked web sites for indexing and searching databases of tens of millions of large records and even hundreds of millions of records. Thunderstone is also flexible enough to implement unanticipated new search functionality as the need arises. Thunderstone’s search results pages can also be customized to show the right results for a user’s search queries and search terms.
NATURAL LANGUAGE QUERIES
Text search operators in Thunderstone have an English language vocabulary of 250,000 word and phrase concept associations for natural language queries. Thunderstone also provides excellent proximity control, fuzzy searches, true regular expression matching and written numerical value searches for even more refined, accurate searches.
CAST A WIDE SEARCH NET
Thunderstone can index more than 150 relevant document formats, including PDFs, word processing documents and more, as well as graphics, music, newswire feeds, and email or discussion groups.
