Unlike Algolia's proprietary tech, appbase.io is built on top of Elasticsearch - the leading open-source search engine. Our no lock-in approach ensures that search doesn't become a cost center for you as you scale.
Get a dedicated cluster with appbase.io at the cost of a shared Algolia cluster. Available in 16+ global regions.
From search relevancy to access controls to actionable analytics and insights, use the dashboard to configure your search.
All of the appbase.io toolings: ReactiveSearch UI kit, REST APIs, visual search tester, enable you to deploy search experiences in days v/s months.
100% Elasticsearch API compatiblity. Install Kibana, custom analyzers and work with tools from the entire ecosystem.
Secure your search UIs and offer role-based access controls with SSO support.
You can choose to deploy a hosted cluster with appbase.io or self-host on any infrastructure.
Algolia limits the max record size to 10KB for standard and premium plans. This often implies modeling workarounds for your use-case.
Algolia is a proprietary search engine that's available as a hosted service.
Algolia's relevance strategy is implemented as a decision tree using tie-breakers. This requires continuously addressing relevance edge-cases as you scale.
Algolia's premier support is only available as part of their enterprise package.
