I am not sure if this question can be asked here. Though i am am asking after doing some research on google.

Basically i want a search like Ebay, Amazon or Flipkart. Which should be faster and easy to maintain(Might be if possible).

I have around 10000k products on the store. And using sphinx search at this moment. But its not very good in terms of speed or maintenance.

I need to reindex for around 8-10 hours after adding products on the store and search is also not fast.

Can you guys please suggest how i can get a better search which will be lightening fast for products, categories etc and easy to maintain.

Again this question should not belong here may be but i think as my site is based on Magento then you guys are the best ones to ask.

Any suggestion will be appreciated.
