Database Indexer

DBI Initial 

Database Indexer is an add-on product for indexing SQL type databases that can be searched with your existing dtSearch Desktop/Network installations.

The application works with local and cloud-based SQL-type databases, including: SQL, MySQL, SQL on Azure, and SQL on AWS.

Perform Fuzzy, Phonic, or Field Searches with Synopsis & Relevancy Ranking using dtSearch Desktop on your database index without constructing complex SQL Queries or impacting database performance with long running queries.

Incremental Updates in a scheduled task allow you to update the index at a time when the database experiences low traffic.

High Availability Search
Indexes created by Database Indexer are independent of the database and are unnaffected during database failures, database upgrades, etc.

The user interface is in English but users can edit an external file to translate all the visible text into any language supported by Unicode.
