Searching in Vidispine is implemented using either Solr or Elasticsearch (New in 4.10.) as the backend. This allows functionality such as boolean operators, faceted searching, term highlighting, search term suggestions, etc.
Solr is the default search backend. It supports all features and works with both standalone Solr and SolrCloud.
