The remorseless march of Amazon  continues…

Announcing Amazon CloudSearchWe are pleased to announce the launch of Amazon CloudSearch, a fully-managed search service in the cloud that makes it easy to set up, manage, and scale search applications. Amazon CloudSearch enables customers to offload the administrative burdens of operating and scaling a search service. Customers don’t have to worry about hardware provisioning, setup and configuration, data partitioning, or software patches. Amazon CloudSearch automatically scales as the volume of data and traffic fluctuates. Built for high throughput and low latency, Amazon CloudSearch supports a rich set of features including free text search, faceted search, customizable relevance ranking, configurable search fields, text processing options, and near real-time indexing. To learn more, visit the Amazon CloudSearch page.

via April 2012 – AWS Summit 2012 approaches, Amazon CloudSearch is introduced, and there are new features for AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Amazon RDS, CloudFront and ElastiCache.
