The versatility of SQL in a full featured, full text search engine software platform

Texis is the core technology for all Thunderstone products. It is the only search engine software 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.

The Power of Structured and Unstructured Search

The Power of Structured and Unstructured Search

Texis 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 Texis 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.

Unlimited Size

Unlimited Size

It 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. And, if help is needed in application building, Thunderstone has experienced consultants available and ready to assist.

Unlimited Search

Unlimited Search

There is no inherent limit to the number of records or documents Texis can search. It is routinely used on the most heavily trafficked web sites for searching databases of tens of millions of large records and even hundreds of millions of records.

Natural Language Queries

Natural Language Queries

Text search operators in Texis have an English language vocabulary of 250,000 word and phrase concept associations for natural language queries. Texis also provides excellent proximity control, fuzzy searches, true regular expression matching and written numerical value searches for even more refined, accurate searches.

Texis is used in many Internet, real-time and integrated applications, such as:

  • Message profiling and handling
  • Image library management
  • Help-desk support
  • Online news retrieval
  • Business intelligence
  • Research libraries
  • Litigation support
  • Internet retail operations

Customer Testimonials

"The ability to do what we did with the Native American community is something that we could do only with Texis. It's not something that I would even try to take on without the robust set of tools that differentiate Texis from everything else in the market. Let me put it as clearly as possible. The other guys just don't have what Thunderstone has."

Kathy Pincus, Chief Technology Officer Mnemotrix Systems, Inc.

"We've been very happy using Texis for our job-ads....I'd personally like to expand the use of Texis on our web sites...Oh, I guess I should let you know that Editor and Publisher presented us with an award earlier this month as the "best newspaper online classified-advertising section". This refers to the system we built back in August which utilizes Texis as its search engine. (And quite nicely too, I might add.) We won out over The Washington Post and USA Today so I guess you should bask in some of the reflected glory. ;)"

Gwen Zanin, Sr. Database Designer Chronicle of Higher Education
