Ultra-fast Search

The dedicated indexes provide lighting fast search in terabytes of data

Forward Search is build to do search fast! The dedicated index files are carefully designed for lightning fast comparing of indexed terms with the searched for terms, and delivers performance on par with the best the market can offer. To further enhance performance, numeric values are transformed into binary search trees cranking up numeric range search a notch extra. 

Likewise, the geo-spatial search is implemented with an elaborate "pre-qualification" step to minimize the notoriously slow Great Circle Distance algorithm used for the distance between geographical points between two geo-positions. Finally, but importantly, Forward Search scales very well and can even be configured to run in a multi-server setup with several load balanced Forward Search services working in parallel.
