Why a project switched from Google Search Appliance to Zend_Lucene

I repost some of my blog posts made @ liip. Please see here for the original post and comments: http://blog.liip.ch/archive/2011/01/13/why-a-project-switched-from-googl...

Google technology does a good job when searching the wild and treacherous realms of the public internet. However, the commercial Google Search Appliance (GSA) sold for searching intranet websites did not convince me at all. For a client, we first had to integrate the GSA, later we reimplemented search with Zend_Lucene. Some thoughts comparing the two search solutions.

This post became rather lengthy. If you just want the summary of my pro and con for GSA versus Lucene, scroll right to the end :-)
