Search is one of the fundamental features users turn to Inoreader for. No matter if we’re talking about free search in all your articles or the much more full and powerful Global Search for all public articles, we know our users rely on search to look for important information or find new one. And we want to make search as helpful as it can be for everyone.

A couple of months back we migrated our search index from Sphinx to Elasticsearch in order to ensure richer and more tailored results. And now we have upgraded the hardware for our search databases in order to make search even faster.
