System Administrator Scenario
The collections on the server had grown to 60 Gig in total and the server was crashing under moderate user loads. I was anticipating having to spend $20,000 on hardware to solve the problem.
Then I downloaded the MultiText demo. I found that with an affordable $4000 server and the software I could solve the storage and scaling issues. The collections continue to grow without any issues.
The underlying MultiText search engine is specifically designed to
manage a very large amount of data on a relatively inexpensive server while providing extremely fast access - even across multiple servers. While the claim may be easy to make, the proof is in the the existing installation sites.
