Vivísimo Introduces Velocity 5.5 Enterprise Search Platform

Vivísimo ( introduced the Vivísimo Velocity 5.5 enterprise search platform. The new version is designed to address the issues of enterprise search scalability and fault tolerance. Velocity 5.5 empowers customers to expand beyond the traditional limitations of departmental inquiries to enterprisewide search without compromising reliability.

With Velocity 5.5, network administrators can easily replicate instances of a single index across multiple services, allowing 99.99 percent up time. For example, if one server crashes, the second or third server storing a copy of that index will fulfill the search request. In mission-critical search applications, this requirement is necessary or a corporation risks the loss of business and employee productivity. Velocity 5.5 allows administrators to quickly segment an index onto multiple servers for maximum application performance in high usage, data-intensive scenarios. Both replication and segmentation of indexes are accomplished through a simple point and click within the Velocity Web administrative interface—taking only minutes to configure.

Velocity 5.5 also offers new search functionality, such as word proximity, complex date ranges, and natural language. In addition, Velocity 5.5 offers a tool for query expansion. For example, some names have many different spellings because they were transliterated into the Roman alphabet from other writing systems (Cyrillic, Arabic, Chinese, etc.). For these names, the ability to expand a query to include all spellings is critical. Velocity 5.5 offers the ability to suggest alternative queries for misspellings, word stemming, alternative translations, and synonyms—all based upon administrator-defined content.
