Our client has a database of over 23,000 case decisions from international courts. These decisions are made available for researchers. The best way for users is to search for keywords in the decisions. The site was using mysql fulltext for matching keywords in content. This search was very slow and was not accurate as well. We implemented Sphinx Search to replace mysql fulltext search. The improvements in results was immediately visible as accuracy and speed both were improved.
