Elastic Acquires Search Startup Swiftype
Elastic, the company behind the open source technology Elasticsearch has acquired Search startup Swiftype.
The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Swiftype had previously raised more than $22 million from Y Combinator.
According to TechCrunch Banon said he’s become convinced that Elastic needed to provide more “end-to-end user experiences,” and when it comes to site search, Swiftype has “created what I would say is the best user experience out there.”
The two companies are already connected, because Swiftype uses Elasticsearch for indexing and storing its search content.
Founded in 2012, Swiftype’s industry leading search platform delivers accurate, relevant and customizable search results for businesses. Swiftype’s suite of products, Site Search and Enterprise Search, have revolutionized the way people find information across their organization and on public facing websites.
