Posted on August 25, 2014 by in Latest Releases

GATINEAU, QC, CANADA – Thursday, August 25, 2014 Norconex is announcing the launch of Norconex Filesystem Collector, providing organizations with a free “universal” filesystem crawler. The Norconex Filesystem Collector enables document indexing into target repositories of choice, such as enterprise search engines.

Following on the success of Norconex HTTP Collector web crawler, Norconex Filesystem Collector is the second open source crawler contribution to the Norconex “Collector” suite. Norconex believes this crawler allows customers to adopt a full-featured enterprise-class local or remote file system crawling solution that outlasts their enterprise search solution or other data repository.

“This not only facilitates any future migrations but also allows customer addition of their own ETL logic into a very flexible crawling architecture, whether using Autonomy, Solr/LucidWorks, ElasticSearch, or any others data repository,” said Norconex President Pascal Essiembre.
