Thunderstone review

Thunderstone is a truly pioneer in the enterprise search field, founded in the 1980’s. Appears to be very accurate, and is one of two that is able to give a meaningful answer to the “to be or not to be” query. Available as bout a virtual appliance (to be run on VMware, Xen, Virtualbox etc) and as a hardware appliance.

You can try a demo of Constellio online here.
