Changes at Lucid Imagination

This morning Lucid Imagination announced that it is changing its name and simplifying its product family.

Lw_logoEffective today, Lucid Imagination becomes LucidWorks. The company remains the place to go for the highest quality open source search platforms, with their product offerings falling under the moniker LucidWorks Product Suite. The product suite is structured in to areas - LucidWorks Search and LucidWorks Big Data. 

LucidWorks Search is available on premises on in the cloud (Amazon and Azure); while LucidWorks Big Data is currently on premises or Amazon. LucidWorks strives to provide a more advanced feature set than the open source version of Solr. For example, the LucidWorks Search product release includes a user interface for creating and managing collections; click-through relevancy boosting; and better security implementation than that found in the open source release. Dealing with LucidWorks provides you features that you'd expect in an enterprise search platform well ahead of the availability in the open source release. LucidWorks continues to sell services and training for Solr for those of you who don't need the advanced capabilities in LucidWorks' products.

Finally, LucidWorks is launching a new support site SearchHub, which will take the place of the existing devZone Community Portal. It will be up in the near future, but you can sign up to be notified as soon as logins are available.

LucidWorks is the way to go for fully supported Solr.
