SearchStax Private Cloud AWS


If your application resides in a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) on Amazon Web Services (AWS), SearchStax Cloud can provide Solr instances in a separate VPC.

Security and Compliance Benefits

A Virtual Private Cloud is a logically-isolated portion of a public cloud environment. It is a virtual network with specific rules for accessing other portions of the cloud and the Internet in general.

A VPC provides a highly-secure environment that prevents unauthorized access, DDoS and other threats that can compromise your application and network security. The heightened security of the VPC helps you honor your compliance commitments.

How does SearchStax Cloud interact with your VPC to provide Solr services without compromising security?

VPC Options

For applications that demand high security and isolation, SearchStax Cloud Private-AWS effectively separates your search infrastructure from other applications and traffic using the following VPC architecture:

  • VPC Peering Option: Solr servers reside in our VPC. Application servers reside in your VPC. Communication is by VPC peering.

VPC Peering Option

The VPC Peering Option deploys the Solr servers in a VPC. This VPC communicates with your application VPC through VPC peering.

This guarantees that all of the operational aspects of managing Apache Solr are handled by SearchStax personnel. There is some additional cost in terms of network latency during searches. SearchStax engineers do not need access to your VPC.

SearchStax pricing for VPC Peering includes one terabyte (TB) of network bandwidth usage per month. Usage beyond this limit will incur an addition fee.

To implement either of these architectures, send us a message at the SearchStax Support Desk. Please include the following information:

  1. Shared option or Peering option?
  2. Which AWS region?
  3. How many deployments (and nodes) do you plan to build?

This will initiate a dialog about pricing and technical details.
