We have a passion for providing useful tools and services for developers and businesses. In 2009, we launched Websolr, the first cloud hosted Solr-as-a-service, in the original batch of Heroku add-ons. In 2012, we followed up with Bonsai, the first hosted Elasticsearch-as-a-service on the market.
Our company is small and independent. Since day one, we've been self-funded, profitable, and beholden to our customers alone. Our entire team, starting with the founders, is comprised of developers, engineers, scientists, and designers.
We've been fortunate to serve teams at both startups and established sites. We manage the search engines for e-commerce applications, social media sites, magazine archives, classifieds search, job boards, resume search, CRMs, CMSs, and more.
Enterprise-grade search powered by open-source Apache Solr and hosted by a team with over 11 years of expertise in cloud operations and search. Websolr is fast, reliable, and backed by expert support and advice.
Bonsai is a fully managed full-text search engine powered by the open source Elasticsearch project. Bonsai is the quickest way to get started, the best value for most projects, and when it's time to scale, we have deep expertise to come alongside and help.

“No one knows Elasticsearch better than Bonsai. We've been able to avoid hiring that expertise in-house because of the support that we're getting with Bonsai.”
